As an internet book club site, it works very well. Creating your internet book club takes seconds... Search for your book, click on the book cover, then write a comment or review. Super simple to use. Lots of big cover photos which helps you find and recognize your book. Good use of AJAX and other dynamic web technologies which puts it up there with the best web 2.0 sites.
Some of the book cover pictures load a bit slow, but with so many covers, that's understandable. They could probably aim to trim some of the page sizes. But, with internet connections as fast as they are these days, this is less of an issue.
For internet book club sites, zbookclub.com is much more on the mark vs LibraryThing, Readerville, Shelfari or even Google Books. Most other sites are book shelves where people can display which books they're reading or post reviews for a books. A true internet book club site should allow users to discuss books, where the whole point of gathering together as an online community to talk about books and share ideas. And better yet, this internet book club site is free, unlike some of the others which charge a subscription fee.
