Who here is a Harry Potter fan? I've read all four books, including the first one twice! My favourite is book two, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. A colleague got me interested in reading them 18 months ago & lent me the first book, then I got my sister and Mum into reading them as well! Joanne Rowling is such brilliant storyteller.

Can't wait for the movie to be released here in Australia. It won't be a total suprise though as there has been a number of articles, trailers and 'spoilers' already but hey I still wanted to see all of them!

I'm seeing the film today. I'll post my feedback.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Plan to see it at cinemas soon, but I think it will be hard to get seats.

I usually go by the philosophy "if something is THIS overhyped, it can't be that good". At least about books. The best way to prevent me from buying a book is to put it in a row with 50 others by the same author...

Put the same book in a "Buy 2 get 1 free" stand with mixed authors, on the other hand, and I buy it. That's how I got to be a Pratchett fan...

For Harry Potter, the entire setting is just too unappealing. I hate books/movies about witch schools, in the style of (British) private schools. Couldn't even stand them as a kid. And when they come up with weird names just for the sake of making you choke on the pronunciation.....

Regards

Ikarus

I see your point Ikarus. Personally I'm not normally one to read books because they are hyped. I read No. 1 after no. 3 had been out a while, and & I remember the hype surrounding the earlier ones but it didn't read it because of that as stated. When I read no. 1 though I was right into it from the first chapter! Big grin

Hey you're missing two books!!!
though they're "apart" from the story, there are two tiny books called
quidich through the ages
fantastic beasts

she wrote 'em for charity for an organization called comic relief

they are two books that appear in the 4th book (the goblet of fire)

I recommend them to you

BTW the film is AWESOME!!! I didn't think it would be my 'thing' and was going along because of the hype but it is a truly enjoyable film. In fact, I would say it is my favourite film of the last 12 months (maybe I'm just a big kid at heart).

Go see it. Now!!!  Smile
