I’m not a fan of Harry Potter, but I do respect it for what it has done. Millions of kids are actually anticipating a new book. That’s quite an accomplishment on Rowling’s part.

Cometgreen, more of a visual guy

Have you read any Cometgreen? I read the first chapter of the first one and thought it sucked, but my girlfriend made me persevere with it. I’m glad she did.

I tried reading the first one, but, well, I’m a crappy reader. :) I’m not really in to the more stereotypical fantasy stories, like D&D, anyway. I like Tolkien, but that’s about it. I get fed up with the talk of trolls and goblins.

Of course, I like Japanese style fantasy, but hate Anime. Go figure.

I may pick the books up in a few years and try to read them, but that’s up for fate to decide.

Try the audiobooks. That’s how I got into them in the end. The ones read by Stephen Fry. Great stuff.

I read all Harry Potter, i liked them at first then when i went to re-read them i realized how fake they are, Harry’s too nice, Hermoine is suposed to look smart but is just pompus, and Ron is suposed to be a chicken, but i’d be scared @#%@less to if i was there! :lol:

and the movies, the all suck at acting especialy Daniel radcliff. the fifth books good though!

I’m not a big reader, when a teacher ask to read a novel, I always read the summaries on the internet, you get the idea :) I have always laugh of the readers of Harry Potter novels but then my mother bought me the first four novels :shock:

So I have a lot of respect for Rowling because in all my life I have read 5 novels

I just finished the fifth one

-Spoilers- (don’t read if you didn’t finish the novel)

I’m 100% sure Sirius isn’t dead, he will be back that’s for sure. And I know why Harry stopped his relation with Cho cause Rowling wants a relation between Harry and Hermione for the last two books 8-)

-End of spoiler-
Read Harry Potter, it’s awesome :D

I read the first 3 harry potter books and I thought they were pretty entertaining.

BTW Buxton, that’s not such a great way to judge a book; just reading the first few chapters and then saying that it sucks!

I did not really like the first one except for the punch at the end, but after 4 books, it’s like if you knew Harry since four years :D

What? Thats the best way to judge a book. If you read the first few chapters and you don’t like the story, then in your opinon, it sucks! Why would he finish reading it? Sense of not you make.

I actually meant to say first chapter of the book, not few chapters. Anyway, I don’t really think that the first chapter or first few chapters determine the quality of the book. What do you mean by “Sense of not you make?”

Its dangerous to read summeraries on the internet, I know of one particuler one designed just for people who don’t read the book.

It was on the lord of the rings, they used the same names of people , and gave a very very different account then what happened in the book. A teacher must think it interesting to read a book report written from that summary, lol!
