reading any kind of book in English is a great idea. It will definitely improve your understanding and enrich your vocabulary. That's how I always feel after having read something in English ;) I think the potter books are good because you can get a lot of everyday British English in it :)

DO YOU LIKE HARRY POTTER OF J.K.ROWLING?

Postby khangminh » Tue Jul 24, 2007 4:44 am

Harry Potter is a good novel.I like Harry Potter so much. It has a lot of magic.It is risky and it takes me to discover many exciting places. It shows me a lot of mithological animal.
HARRY POTTER IS REALLY EXCITED AND ATTRACTIVE.
how about you? Can you tell me your idea?

A lot of adults likes because they haven't grown up mentally, they are the same kids deep inside themselves.

I prefer realistic books..

It's so good to be able not to be grown up by mentally. I have read all potter's books, except last one. I will wait until they translate it and someone buy it that I can borrow it to read. It's no point to me to buy that book. If I could have kids my self, it would be different I could buy it to them. :lol:

That's what I used to think until somebody convinced me to read the first book. I loved it! I watched the movie right after that.

The first book was the best one.. next ones can hardly be good as first. Because they are continues of the first one, they stay always: second, third and.. etc. But movie was only first one that was good. next ones I even did not watch.
