Amazon Reviews the Classics

If Amazon had been around in ancient times, what might citizen reviewers have said about some of the classic works of western literature? This author offers some examples, such as:
Deuteronomy — Average Reader’s Rating: Three stars. I don’t get it. I’ve read most of the books in this series, and they totally kick butt, but this one leaves me scratching my head. Is there a story here? Am I missing something? Why so much talk about clean and unclean beasts? The author really got on a roll with Genesis and Exodus, and I was on the edge of my seat when I read The Book of Numbers. But this one runs out of gas early. Now I’m glad I skipped Leviticus!

I never liked those reviews

Thank goodness, there are plenty of places to read well-written reviews by true bibliophiles and subject experts. The Amazon reviewing & ranking process is totally artificial, almost laughable.
