I got to tell you that I also read the Deathly Hallows and it disappointed me terribly... Sad
Please don't say too much about it! As the dad of an energetic toddler, I rarely find free time to read, so I just recently finished "The Order of the Phoenix" Embarassed. I want to enjoy some lighthearted comedy pulp fiction before jumping back into "The Half-Blood Prince" hopefully over the winter holiday season.

Hi Bob!

Okay, I won't say much... I don't like spoilers either... Harry Potter series are part of what we know as light literature, right? But the books are enternaining and are a nice way to learn more English. When I began them I was small, about 8 years old, so I liked them a lot. Now, I expected more from them, but I had to remember what they were written for...

I liked the Half Blood Prince the best. I think that one will always be my favourite from the series. Have fun reading it!

Right now I'm reading Utopia by Thomas More. It's quite interesting.

Good bye guys! Very Happy

I just finished "into the wild" by krakauer. After that I watched the movie.

The book made a profound impression on me, what a person he must have been. The movie was also good but not on the same level as the book, it felt a bit pretentious and contrived at times.

Worth seeing or reading though!
