Clarke shortlist on GoodReads and LibraryThing

I'm going to look back on these posts after all the awards have been announced, and see whether the online ownership statistics have any use at all.

Goodreads Librarything
number average number average
The Dog Stars, Peter Heller 8399 3.95 600 4.06
Angelmaker, Nick Harkaway 2131 4.04 391 3.98
2312, Kim Stanley Robinson 1897 3.41 334 3.56
Dark Eden, Chris Beckett 215 4.09 56 4.12
Intrusion, Ken MacLeod 163 3.40 96 3.78
Nod by Adrian Barnes 23 4.61 7 5
NB that only one Librarything user has rated Nod, which is why that number is italicised.

Full shortlist is here.

I confess I had not heard of The Dog Stars, but it has way more readers than the others - getting on for twice as many GoodReads users as the other five combined.

Also interesting that the very few who have read Nod (or possibly NOD), which I also hadn't heard of, seem to rate it very highly.
