I know I'm definitely in the minority here, but I only read one of the Potter books. I never really got into them, even though I do like fantasy/scifi. I don't really know why they don't appeal to me.I just finished reading complete Sherlock Holmes collection for the third time.
Also went through O.Henry collected works again, The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni and witing for the 7th Potter book.
I wouldn't know since, as I have said, I have only read one of them, but I'd guess this may be because the series was stretched out too far. I've seen it happen in other series as well. Sometimes, there just shouldn't be a 5th book. Again, this is only a guess.Lord of the rings is definitely much better than all the potter books put together. I think J.K. Rowling is losing her touch, the 5th and 6th books were sub-standard compared to the earlier ones.
The Witch, the Lion, and the Wardrobe was good each after that degraded to the point that the last was only good for toliet paper.What about C.S. Lewis? Anybody like his writings? I've read the Narnia books and the Space Trilogy. I gotta say, I really enjoyed them.
I agree with both points. I also think that the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud should also be a part of the required reading list.The Witch, the Lion, and the Wardrobe was good each after that degraded to the point that the last was only good for toliet paper.
I am not sure why the Harry Potter books are always being held up to Tolkien. They are just different, I think both should be on the required reading list.
I have never heard of this trilogy, I'm sorry to say! What is it about?I agree with both points. I also think that the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud should also be a part of the required reading list.
Amen Brother!Fool of a Took rather!
