A far as giving reviews on books they haven't read, people love to give their two cents, even if they don't know what they are talking about. It makes them feel important. Its part of the culture that believes that all that matters is attention, that if people pay attention or listen to you that means you are important. Call it the reality tv philosophy.
p.s. It also stems from a profound sense of entitlement and egoism, a belief that the whole world exists to meet your needs and gratify your desires. It is inconceivable that someone would write a book not specifically for you.
