of possible interest: Mafalda gets the highest rating I have ever seen with a minimum of reviews : 4. Meanwhile, the lowest I've ever seen is 2. Ron Hubbard. message 4: by Miquixote new. I would like to see a top list on Goodreads like they have on IMDB. There they apply Bayer's theorem for a weighted rating. Although I think the minimum amount of ratings is too high there 25, Perhaps would be a good minimum? to apply a weighted rating Bayer's theorem , the average rating on Goodreads would need to be known. I wonder if Goodreads has those kinds of statistics?
Applying Bayer's theorem is impossible to do without an average, although I suppose one could do it with an estimated average in a worst case scenario. It is certainly above 3. any estimates? message 5: by Themis-Athena Lioness at Large new. Sep 05, AM.

Similar to the IMDb formula, or something simpler e. message 6: by Miquixote new. I'm pretty sure it's even simpler than that. GR's Most Popular lists are simply how many people added the book to their personal libraries during the specified period, nothing to do with average ratings or any algorithms.
message 7: by Miquixote new. Just deleted a book for falling below 4. message 8: by Miquixote last edited Sep 05, AM new. I see some patterns to extremely highly rated books: 1. complete or collected works or series 2. poetry or plays 3. any book that is a part of a series 4. religious books 5. comics 6. young adult Those in the list that do not fit into any of the above categories: The Power Broker history A Story Like the Wind historical fiction On Food and Cooking food The Feynman Lectures on Physics science The Arcades Project philosophy Captive Prince erotica Anybody else notice any other patterns? Perhaps as more books enter the list there will be new patterns that appear to betray biases according to genre for unbelievably high ratings.
I conjecture that there will be a fair amount of romance books out there that could enter the list My theory is that there are certain genres that do not intrinsically usually involve much critical thinking ie. young adult, religion, comics, most series and will inherently bias the reviews towards more positive ones. The populist reader reads simply for an emotional high and is extremely unlikely to criticize the intellectual value of a book. While critical thinkers generally won't touch that kind of literature. Meanwhile if a casual reader one who reads simply for distraction has to read a somewhat more literary novel ie.
classics they will usually trash it and say it is boring, hence the low ratings of classics or anything remotely intellectual which has been forced on the general populace usually because of school. Anybody willing to read an entire collection or a series is probably already seriously biased towards loving the author of that collection, hence the unbelievably high ratings in that category. Poetry seems to have unbelievably high ratings as well, and I haven't decided if that is because it is inherently of higher quality or if the readers or writers are of an extra special breed. Feel free to contradict me, these are just ideas! message 9: by Themis-Athena Lioness at Large new. I'd essentially agree with all of the above, with one qualification: Virtually all of the poetry collections that we've so far found to fit the criteria for this list are collections of poetry not originally written in English.
With the exception of Shakespeare's two ominbus editions of which the First Folio only covers the plays, and not all of those that are contained in modern "complete works" editions, at that , I've yet to find an English speaking poet whose poetry has been rated with an average of 4. GR has a remarkably international constituency, but I'd wager nonetheless that most of its membership are native English speakers. At any rate, I doubt that those poetry collections that made the list are as well-known and widely-taught in countries other than those of their provenance as poetry by, say, Keats, Byron or Whitman are in the UK and the U. All of which, to my mind, would seem to support your basic theory, however, not contradict it. message by Miquixote new. I hadn´t noticed that the highly rated poetry books were non-English.
and it would indeed seem now that they are not. message by Themis-Athena Lioness at Large new. The interesting thing is, too, as soon as you start looking at non-English speaking poets whose works are better known in the English speaking world Pablo Neruda, Anna Akhmatova , however widely-respected and much-beloved they are, you're again going to get a less-than Sep 05, PM.

This list is kind of ridiculous, because ratings always change. A lot of the top books have an average lower than 4.
message by Tvzypdxm new. Jun 10, PM. it's not ridiculus, it's just no maintained. But the idea is very good.

Post a comment ». date newest ». message 1: by Mitchell last edited Oct 25, PM new. Oct 25, PM. Cool idea for a list.
Is the intention to limit this to books? so if a librarian finds a book with a higher avg rating that has more than 5, ratings, they should remove the lowest? Or was this intended to be a minimum of rating of say 4. reply flag. message 2: by Agustín new. Mitchell wrote: "Cool idea for a list. Or was Yes, it is up to a books. If you find any other book with a higher rating and at least 5, ratings let me know here in the comments and I will add it ASAP. Take in consideration what I wrote in the lists description. The only other book I found was "The Invisible Life Of Addie LaRue", but it just came out so I will wait a few weeks to finally put it on this list. message 3: by Mitchell last edited Oct 25, PM new.
