Great!!

So it’s not death.

If I was going on with reading them all, but I quit half way the second part, I had run to the shop and buy it.

Same here…..I think that if you are going to read a book or see a movie it should at least have a good plot to it…….
And harry pot-head and the sorcerers stoned is not my idea of a good book…..

Personally i think that the starcraft novel is EXTREMELY good….

And I think that in order to know if a book or movie has a good plot to it, you have to read or see it.

I haven’t read the Harry Potter books, but I probably will eventually. They must be pretty good if hundreds of thousands, (or so, I don’t know), of people like the books enough to purchase the newest volume in the series within 10 minutes of its release. I guess I’ll just have to read them to find out for myself.

Yes It all depends on what type of books people like. Not everyone like Harry-Potter. I read the first one, but never got a round to the rest. Oh well. My favorite book is “The Giver” by Louis Loury.

“harry pot-head and the sorcerers stoned”. That offended my and cracked me up at the same time. It’s a very confusing emotion in itself…

Anyway, i just bought it today and have read about five pages. Well, only about 795 more to go! :lol:

I am a fan of the series. For those who haven’t seen it, I recommend you at least give it a five page chance at the bookstore.

I just finished it :twisted:

There’s something good about being ill during your weekend: you have an excuse for staying in bed and reading it. Had to send my brother and mother to get it for me, though…

Shorty, be comforted. The last word is printed on page 766, while the first chapter starts at page 7 (British/European edition).

I must say that it does live up to its expectations, but does not pass the quality of part 3 (which is still the best, in my opinion).

Stefan (who hopes the next part will take less time to write than this one).

Really? That’s quite a feat considering the expectations placed upon it. I agree with you, I like the 3rd book the best.

I’ve got a long afternoon of flying and waiting in the terminal today, maybe I’ll stop at the book store and pick it up on my way to the airport.

What do you think is going to happen to Rowling after she finishes the series? Certainly she’ll write more books, but do you think they’ll have any success?

The first one would, but only because there’s Potter fans waiting for it. I seem to have heard she wrote a novel for adults, but doesn’t want it published because of the fear for the connection with Potter.

I wouldn’t put it beyond her to resort to publishing under a pseudonym.

But the success wouldn’t matter much: the money will keep flowing in.

She said in an interview that she’d try writing under a pseudonym, but the press would find out about it in an instant, so there’s no point. Apparently, she has ideas for more “grown up” stories but worries that she’ll always be known as the Harry Potter woman.

For any doubters out there, my favourite book is probably ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’, I’ve read and enjoyed all sorts of “proper” writing – classics, modern stuff, sci fi, etc, etc, and I still think Harry Potter is amazingly well-written. The end of Goblet of Fire gave a real sense that important events were being set in motion and the overall story arc was going to shift up a gear. I am definitely looking forward to reading the latest one.

I’ve never met anyone who has actually read the books who doesn’t like them.

How could you have read it in a day, Wandrer? There isn’t a chance of that for me since my younger brother and sister both want to read it to, so sombody is always reading it when i’m not.
