Is there a website where it aggregates all the reviews of a book like Rotten Tomatoes does for movies?

Metacritic used to do it, but they stopped a while back.

Bookmarks Magazine does this.

Here's a MeFi post about Bookmarks, which is how I learned of it.

It's much less methodical, but the Complete Review accompanies its own reviews with a table summarising 10-20 reviews of each book, excerpts from a few of those reviews, and a quick write-up of what it considers to be the review consensus. For example Arcadia; Middlemarch.

It mostly only includes books for which they have written their own review (which is currently around 2200 books), so you can't rely on finding any particular book, but it's very useful for the books they do have.

You can look up a given book on LibraryThing and see what reviews and ratings have been offered by people who own the book. But few enough of those a "professional" reviews: they come from anyone with a LT account.
