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? <a href="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204683204574356541209342218.html">This author offers some examples</a>, 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!
