"The more reviews of varying types there are, the more I as a reader trust the average of those reviews. Disagreement to me seems more likely to be honest instead of a hype bomb from the squee-cannon. As I said before - it's easy to fake hype. It's much harder to fake anger or the process of working out how one feels about a book through a thoughtful discussion of pros and cons."

Smart stuff from the every fab Smart Bitches.
As a basic rule, I don't trust a book with mostly fawning reviews.
