Publication/Presentation Date



Abstract. This study examines the dependence of novel sales based on Amazon online reviews by an aspect-based approach. The analysis was conducted on the weighted sentiment score for four different aspects from consumer reviews of popular novels published in 2015. This approach is useful to other novelists who can search for better performing novels and also for publishers who aim at monitoring public sentiment for their novels. This study reveals a feature that is correlated with Amazon’s novels ranking system. Results from this study show a dependence of sales on the novel’s character aspect.
