Are there sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB for books?

These aren't quite the same as IMDB, but Bookslut and Goodreads are two I have been investigating.

I dig Bookslut with a shovel!!!
Plus the New York Times Book Review is archived back to 1997.

Check out Metacritic Books.

Not really a "review" site (although it does have reviews), but check out Library Thing.

This is really nothing like Rotten Tomatoes, but I can usually find what I'm looking for, as well as fresh suggestions, from the comprehensive links list at Arts & Letters Daily (on left side of the page).

Amazon.com items usually have reviews (though sometimes the authors' friends distort the balance by giving crappy books stellar write-ups).

The Complete Review.

Reviews of Books is just that -- a repository of links to (professional) book reviews. Organized by genre.

The Internet Book List is pretty useful.

Fantastic Fiction is not quite what you are looking for but a nice one to have around.

bookshelves of doom is a blog by a librarian who reviews books for young adults. She also covers a lot of books enjoyed by all age groups.
