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. On May 1, we’re saying 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.

Re: Your Review of The Believers

I really enjoyed the opportunity to read this book, and sorry I didn't get into any of the discussions (I started it late) but I really did enjoy this book.

Re: Your Review of The Believers

I am not able to get there from the link (at work). I am not able to even get to bookclubs and sign in anymore from home, so would you like me to review the book here?

Re: Your Review of The Believers

I really liked the book "The Believers." Although the family was irritating at times, what with their idiosyncracies, etc., it was a wonderful read. Ms. Heller did an excellent job of bringing this dysfunctional family to the written page. She is a super writer and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

Re: Your Review of The Believers

I thought the characters in this book were the most thought provoking I've run into for a long time. They all brought out alot of emotion. They made me very involved in this book. I found myself screaming out loud at Audrey especially. The book moved along very quickly and although it isn't my favorite read I did enjoy it very much. Thank you again to Barnes and Noble and to Zoe Heller for making this available to us in advance. Yvonne

Re: Your Review of The Believers

Hello Everyone!

 

I have been traveling but finished this book on the plane.  This really was a wonderful book which I enjoyed reading.  The characters were great and I learned many different things about the books time frame.  I was sorry to read that Joel passed on, but was happy that Lenny finally seemed to get his act straight. 

 

Each character was done perfect.  Thanks so much for the chance to read the book and enjoy my long plane ride!
