Book Ratings on LibraryThing and Amazon

I was wondering how similar or different reader ratings in LibraryThing and Amazon would be. So I tried a title. To the left is the result. The reader consensus is just about the same.

Of course, this needs more study. Has anyone else already done this?

I am wondering whether Amazon ratings can be more easily manipulated by authors, publishers, or publicists. Is this really something worth worrying about?

Any thoughts?
