    Is this overrated?

    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    Probably an ESTP.

    Actually, Harry Potter IS what got ME into reading. It's how it started, My English improved by 2 grades, and I discovered a whole different world. My family was never the " book" sort, luckily my friends were insistent on me reading it.

    I am a huuuuge Harry Potter fanatic. And you people sadden me.

    Honestly, it's just a feel good movie for me. And it's very creative. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the fantasy world. They're simply fun and enjoyable to read and watch. I loved both the books and the movies. Tell me you never wished you went to the wizarding school of Hogwarts. Sounds... ah-mazing!

    I thought a lot of J.K. Rowlings ideas were somewhat genius, too. The pensieve? When you find yourself with too many cluttered thoughts, pulling them out so one can go back and examine them separately and when they are ready? The spell, "ridiculous." (Though I'm sure it was spelled differently.) Turning our fears into laughter. The maurauders map: "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." "Mischief managed." Love it.

    Of course not

    I am undecided about the books/movies themselves though. The story is awesome and it's all fun and magical but considering the masses of crazed Potter fans, I think it's about at a draw. So about appropriately rated, perhaps.

    I enjoyed the series. Never really got into the fan culture though.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    They are not the best books I've ever read, but I like them and I'm happy to have them in my bookcase, as I would reread them now and then.
    Is the success too big compared with the quality? I won't judge on that. I've contributed myself a very little bit to the success (by buying all seven books and going to some of the movies) and I'm happy about what I got in return (enjoying the books and the movies). Good for Rowling.

    For people like me - wannabe writers - there's a sharp edge to such discussions. Jealousy. If I start saying some best-sellers don't deserve their success, it sounds like I'm complaining about my lack of success. I don't want to do that. Still, there are best-sellers I don't like. Do they deserve their succes? I guess they do. I guess the fans enjoyed them, and that's the thing that matters.
    I only hope some day people will enjoy my books too.

    I can't get into it. My ex was crazy about it, which I found slightly odd. She read the books over and over, watched the movies over and over. Couldn't get enough. Not sure if it would matter if I was younger.
    Type 6w5 sp/so/sx I think..I have not fully explored this and just discovered it.
