A friend of mine wrote a book and it's terrible. She wants me to write a bunch of glowing reviews about it on different sites. What would you do in this situation?

Tell her that you do not think you can properly do the book justice in your reviews of it.

I would probably say I didn't have the time to.

Constructive criticism. Don't let her put out a crappy book if she is thinking of making a career out of this.

 Say it's not your style of book maybe? If she's a good friend, I can see why you wouldn't want to hurt her feelings. Other people will do that for you if it's not a good book. She will find out. Or you could just plug through it and then give a generic book review.

Oh it's already out. I WISH she'd asked me before it was published...
