Nice people = people who violate copyright laws.
Strange interpretation of nice you have there.
Actually not because there is such a thing as "fair use" and the people that posted the pages didn't charge money for them. I would generally think that Pocket Books is pretty glad those pages were posted because it assured the sell of a number of books. The pages do not show the how or the why of the plot. It is a win for everyone.
There wasn't anything showed in those two pages that couldn't be shown in any blog review as snips of the text.
Nice is opinion, you don't have it, but a lot of people do.
