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.

I just didn't find it relevant to post the whole link and that for several reasons.

Choisya, you're too much! Ziki, although I think TGS is very depressing, I'm enjoying our conversation here. I'll just assume your second question was rhetorical!

goodness gratious

I finished the book and now I need a stiff drink. Or rather three. I will do my best to discuss it in proper places but right now my head is spinning. The end image I have of Dowell is pretty distressing.

Any chemist around?

FMF killed Florence with prussic acid which is nothing else by Zyklon B that Nazi used in camps.

Solution in water is possible but I wonder is that what boils at 26°C? If so how could she keep it with her all that time?

Exactly; there is not much dialog and I wonder how they handled that...plus all the flashbacks and stuff.

I would think it gave the director cart blanche to do what he/she liked. It would be an improvement on all the films where they have murdered the dialogue:smileysurprised:

Re: Community room and extras

Okay I really liked the story! But I think it's because I tend to be attracted to those who possess a 'destructive force of fulfillment'. I don't believe I have one :smileyhappy:
