The Clarke shortlist: Goodreads/LibraryThing stats

Following on from my post on the long list, here are the Goodreads and LibraryThing ownership and ratings stats for the shortlist.
Goodreads LibraryThing
owners av rating owners av rating
American War — Omar El Akkad 70396 3.83 632 3.86
Borne — Jeff VanderMeer 50713 3.91 565 3.9
Gather the Daughters — Jennie Melamed 16643 3.66 130 3.48
Spaceman of Bohemia — Jaroslav Kalfař 9580 3.87 122 4.1
Sea of Rust — C. Robert Cargill 8563 4.14 113 4.14
Dreams Before the Start of Time — Anne Charnock 816 3.51 24 3.3

The one that I really didn't see coming was Dreams Before the Start of Time, which I really liked (though I liked the other three BSFA finalists more).

Note the high reader ratings for Sea of Rust, though it's also worth saying that it's tough to maintain high average ratings as the number of readers goes up, so Borne is doing well too.
