Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Chapters 40-44

For discussion of the last 5 chapters of the novel. No need to worry about spoilers!

Re: Chapters 40-44

Finally finished it; it was an interesting satire but not one of my Twain favorites.

Re: Chapters 40-44

Glad to hear you finished, bentley! I had a feeling it might not get better in your estimation as it went along. Still, you've checked another book off the list, which is nearly always a good thing!

Happy holidays to you, & thanks for participating,

It wasn't my favorite Twain thought I am a big fan of his. I think anyone could tell where this was going from the first 10 chapters (not much new in terms of political statements after that). Seeing that it was a political treatise on a variety of themes I am surprised that you did not get much interaction.

I just decided to finish the reading on my own. It wasn't horrible; just a different format. Happy holidays to you as well.
