no one in the world reads harry potter, the author got rich by winning the euro lotto and it's all a scam.

i refuse to read the trashy and have seen the movie before the current one because my GF made me go see it.

If you want to read some good fiction pick up a books from the Redwall Series or go read the Lord of the ring (actually its just one big book and not a trilogy) as the movie really f-ed up the storyline

I've been listening to the HP audio book during my hour + commute - it's ok. It keeps my mind from dwelling on the traffic too much.

I'd have to agree. It left a lot to the imagination but still let us know how everything turned out later down the road.

Why does redwall series sound familiar? Is that the fantasy series where the characters are all animals, like rats and squirrels?

I been reading the Wheel of Time series, reading book 10 right now.

I'm pretty sure Redwall was the mice and all sorts of stuff. Read a couple back in middle school, they were pretty awesome, but I prefer sci-fi these days. The Dune series pretty much takes the cake. Saw the new movie, never read the books, missed most of the other movies. Was an entertaining film that kept me attentive and a bit on the edge of my seat and was about as entertaining as the trip to the theater in which a coworker and I fried the brakes in a rental Dodge Avenger (we e-braked to stop as well as to "assist" in turns for a good 8 miles or so). Anyways, when does the actor who plays Hermione turn 18?

There all over 18, if I am correct I know potter is cause my ex and her friends had a party that night cause he was "legal".

The movie did not F up the storyline, it merely had to leave a lot of things out, otherwise each of the films would've been twice as long.

They certainly held more true to the book than most films do.

no the did change it up BIG time.

Farmeir (sp) was a puss in the movies, while in the book he was a central and main character especially in the return of the king section.

Also the people of Rohan did not run away like cowards into helms keep they strategically and actively went after the hordes and were slowly pushed back into the keep.

BIG differences.


as to Redwall books yes that is were the characters were animals. Great Stuff.
