Interesting books.. Though they are children's books, I finished all those 6 books something about 10 days.. I think it was too much for 10 days.. I got Potter's poisoning.

I'm a new comer in this discusion
Well, I've read this part after wating for a long time :)
Yeah, it's so wonderful!!! I can't find out any word to show my thought. :D
But I am also sad when Mr. Dumbledore died, and Hogwarts school has been closing. :( :( :(

My cousin refused to read the book when she'd heard he died. She did not wanna read it even when I shoved the book to her face, pressed it really hard on her while handcuffing and yelling, "read the damn thing! read it!" but she still said no. *Sigh* Some people are just too disobedient :P :lol: .

nightingale wrote:What can I say about J.K.Rowling, the author? She imagines so well, we were keen on reading Harry Potter , forgetting the time :D

She's just won the British award for greastest writer or something like that. It seems like it's a pretty big achievement for her. 8)

Actually, I don't want him to die, though. In fact, I don't any of them die. I wanted the whole thing to be a dream or a kid's fantasies. If this idea is too 'unrealistic', then I'd like Voldermort to change. You know, he'd become the good guy because Harry finally broke him down. They're different in spirits, but they share the similarities of life. And like any Asian movies we see about those stupid good girls who are too good that they don't seem to get mad at the evildoers. "Forgive, forgive, forgive" they always say. Gosh, they make me sick! On the other hand, it sounds pretty nice. 8) :lol:

:oops: :wink: Oh gosh, you're making me blush, and it's a good thing. I normally don't feel ashamed or embarrassed :lol: :lol: . And I've been busy, so it's hard for me to participate here. I saw this message last week, but I didn't have enough time to answer. Now I can since I'm not feeling sleepy right now.
Oh yeah, I'm gonna be near to the nut house, actually :lol: . I will work in the same place with 14 men as my coworkers. Talking about too many men here! My supervisor has warned me that there will be a lot of sex talk and cussing. Let's see how nutty it will be. Right now, it seems like there are plenty of nuts to me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Why do I like it? Well, it's easy to understand. It's still good and interesting even though the author doesn't use all the big words. It fits for all ages. It has nice plot, good imagination, love, friendship, good and evil battles, discrimination, slavery, etc.

I can't believe the book coming out next year will be the last one. :cry: :cry:

Actually, I did not read yet. I look forward to publish a paperback version.

I am a student, so I do not have enough money to buy hard cover version. Also, I do not want to read Harry Potter in Japanese translation version. Because I read the series in English, paperback.

Hi,fellas!
Do you like reading story? Say, if only some of you were not reading story lovers, have you ever read Harry Potter? I’m sure almost you all have. Yeah, it’s really a wonderful story I have read up to now. It has given me great bravery, optimission, and spirit I’ve never got before-above all my efforts- to face life with all minds, no matter how hard it is.
Knowing the fact that his life is just like a stone throw to the death, moreover while facing his enemy, Lord Voldemort, he never ran back frightenedly. On the other hand, Harry optimistically fought though there may be only little chance left.
He has too great responsibility as a very young teenager to solve witch world’s problem. Furthermore, he has been suffered many times since he was baby. I can’t figure out how he faced those horrible moments.
Getting uncountable experiences, lessons, and wise words from that story, I appreciate the author so much, J.K. Rowling. She motivates me to move on and never give up along my life.
Well, friends! Now, tell me what you got and you felt after experiencing a lot of wonderful heart breathing situations with Harry Potter!

I was told there are spiders in the second movie. I have arachnophobia, so I decided I wouldn't read the book because then I would want to watch the movie and I just can't stand those creatures :roll:

i've read the Harry Potter books and i've watched the first 3 movies.

they are fine books... the only thing which annoyed me in the 6 books i've read was that i knew Harry will survive till the last book... so it was somehow knowing the end of the first 6 published book...
but i liked the kind of suspect in the story and also the way secret things were revealed in the end.

waiting for the 7th book... can't guess if Harry will survie this time or no... gotta wait :wink:

yeah Dixie... there are spiders in the second book and movie... i hate spiders and i'm scared of them too(i sometimes wonder why i'm afraid of such small creatures, though... but the spiders in the movie are not small at all!)... i read the book with no problem but for the movie, except for the first time i watched it, i try to look to some other thing when the spiders are coming down over Harry & Ron :wink:
