Harry Potter is getting boring with Mr.Harry now grown up 'wizard'.I liked book no.1-4, but rest two arn't good.

I agree with what Amina said, it is a simple-fun-book and nothing more.It is better to read Harry Potter in your free time, rather than glare at T.V.

Harry Potter is one of those rare book which made me realise that books are not always boring.Encouraged after reading it, I tried my hands at Dickens and Jeffry Archer novels.It didnt had any negative effect on me(I hope)-rather helped me increase my english.

Regards,Dayem.

Excellent  Keep up the good work!

Since I'm working at a primary school library, I am catching up on my junior novels and at the moment reading Dragon Rider by Corniella Funke. It is fantasy  

Back to Harry Potter, it seems I missed something where's the third movie, the prison of Azkaban?

I can't see number 4 yet, haven't watched no.3 yet nor have i read book 4.

I seemed to be wanting to read the books first then see the movies

I do find it very much inline with the book, you know how movies tend to go away and adapt things for the movie medium, I didn't find it with the HP movies, well at least with the first two

You know which ones is my favourite novel so far?It is Lord of the Rings,by JRR Tolkien, which again has a bit of magic innit.Awesome!

All 3 or just read book one ?

I haven't read the books, watched the movies thou, awesome! 

And thanks for the offer but I think I will get the book/s :)

The books r so much better then the movies.  They take out lots of good parts from the movie. I watched the first 3 movies.  A couple of eids ago my mom bought the 3rd movie.  My little siblings just love it.  they went around yelling out spells from the movie.

All 4 dearie.THE HOBBIT is the first one, though tolkien wrote it only after he has written the first three.

Well, I did wtched The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, but it had lots of violence; I would not recomend it.

HP's 3rd movie was a bit diifferent from the exact story of the books.And comparing, it ws better than Hp1 and HP2.Daniel's(harry) hair was not soooooooooo wild innit.
