Metadata reviews

I've recently got a Kindle and have managed to download some books to it....but I can't see the metadata anywhere. I want to be able to read the reviews that I can see in Calibre, so I know what I'm choosing to read. Is there a way to see the metadata, including reviews?

Support for that metadata is not a feature of the Kindle software.

There are two approaches that are commonly used to satisfy this requirement:
- generate a catalog for the books on the Kindle. See this sticky for more information on generating catalogs. The generated catalog can then be loaded onto the Kindle.
- use the Calibre facility for generating a cover displaying metadata information and use it in place of the standard cover. However many people prefer to keep their standard covers.

Thanks for that. Have just had a look through Calibre and am not sure how to generate a cover that includes the reviews?
