I use a similar system when reading the amazon reviews. Surprisingly, the negative ones sometimes give me a much better idea whether or not the book is for me. Some negative reviews are childish or petty sounding, and those I usually don't pay much attention to; negative or semi-negative reviews that are honest and somewhat critical tend to five me a better idea about the book that gushing, 5 star reviews. . Be careful of spoilers, though, I find that a lot of reviewers on amazon spoil it up without any warning.
