Actually, you're better off having a book node, and a "review of something or 
other" node that's then applied to a book (or anything!).  The book is just a 
data node so should be trivially easy, or can even be done with flexinode or 
cck.  As for reviews:

NodeReview module: http://drupal.org/node/59051

It allows one review per user per node being reviewed, and is fully 
customizable.  Users can go back and edit their reviews as well, or see all 
reviews that have been written (assuming necessary permissions, etc.)

If that's only 80% of what you need, please send patches!  I'd much rather we 
beef up one first-rate review module than have a dozen floating around.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
