Harry Potter V - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

OK, so right now there is all this hype and that's really what I'm posting about.

I have to admit that I have never read one of these books. My only awareness of Mr. Potter is through the two movies thus far released. However those I have spoken two have told me that the books they have read are actually quite dull, boring and badly written.

With Book 5 only a few weeks away there has already been controversy over the discovery of 2 copies of the book in a field, not far from the publishes factory. As of last night these two copies were in the safe of the SUN newspaper, a trashy UK tabloid.

To me this seems like an orchestrated event, though this morning they say that some youths have been arrested in relation to this apparent theft.

Is this a publicity stunt??? And will you be buying Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix?

Sorry, guys, but the Harry Potter phenomenon will live on. I ADORE the books - they're by no way "kid-y".

I know your entitled to your opinion, but I'm an A level English student, and I often review books - Harry Potter is an excellent series. It's by no means just for kids, many adults enjoy the series, and I think there will always be more people that like it than don't.

ergh...that's different big grin stick out tongue
i bet that most of the adults that read it, phoenix, do it either because it reminds them of their childhood (and enhacements on this idea), or just for the sake of it, or..boredom (ok...this...probably not).
I completly understand why an older person would read it.

When i tried to read it, i was in the middle of 'the silmarillion' and ..well...you know they can't be compared.
And now, when i've finished dune...i'm gonna be more picky about books than ever.
I even immagine the NJO childish...think about how i'd like HP.

I read them because I enjoy them, Dexx... is that too hard for you to understand?

I don't see why a publicity stunt is necessary.

That I enjoy them as books. I do not read them just for the sake of it, or because it reminds me of my childhood, or any bullshit reason like that. I read them because I enjoy them on the same level as books like LOTR so do not try and pretend that only children enjoy these books.

It certainly looks a heck of a lot like your point, seeing as you said that your 7-year old cousin reading it should give an idea of who should be reading it, and then listed the exact things I just said.
