Here is the place to talk about the newest HP novel. I am not an obsessed fan but do plan on getting the book when it comes out in a couple of months.(I am more looking forward to Feast of Crows... but not sure when that book is comming out) I want to find out where can I order the UK version that doesn't have all of the annoying art and Americanizations?

Harry Potter has to be the lamest kids book know to man. I liked Goosebumps better because it wasn't has lame.

So? The Futurama DVD wasn't coming out in the U.S. for at least a year and we still had threads about that.

I plan on getting it.

Um, actally, I believe Goosebumps qualified as "hella-lame"? By-the-numbers kiddie "horror" that couldn't scare a paranoid schizophrenic on crack? I'm just saying, is all.

I should pre-order my copy.  I love Harry Potter.  I think a lot of people just hate it to hate it and have to justification.

Apparently the books are actually quite good if you sit down and read them, so all the random hatred of the franchise is not actually justified. But that's pop culture for you. Rowling should have thought of that before her stories became uber-popular.

If you want to sell out so badly, then you've got to accept the inevitable backlash. Thems the breaks.

i rekon they wont be as good as the previous ones because she knows that they'll make it into a movie so she'll write it differently. + her books were getting nice and violentish and dark and that'll change because she knows the audience for the movie will be 7-10 yr olds.

I can only imagine that this book is going to be even longer than Goblet of Fire.  I suppose publishers give a lot more freedom to a cash cow like Rowling.

My question is: why is this thread on the TV Board?

Yeah, but she's already wrote each book, she must have finished book eight just after the first film, she just hasn't published them.

I like the Harry Potter books. I hate all the merchandise and I dislike the movies but the books are good. I was reading Harry Potter long before all this junk started.

  big grin I LOVE Harry Potter, in fact I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. After from what I've heard, it's going to be on 768 pages, (but it's a rumour I think) and yay! A lot will be revealed...   big grin

And I loved the books before the movies.  smile

I've read all the harry potter books, will read the new one, not obsessed with it, but I do agree the franchise does ruin it.
This will be the first book to be released since the harry potter mayhem, wonder if the quality will have dropped any?

oh and Bartman- I dont believe she has written all 8 books- because there is only going to be 7, it was said that she only just finished book 5.

She hasn't written the books yet, she just have the scripts to them. She isn't done with them yet, but... yeah. I do NOT think the quality will drop, though. Harry Potter is great, JK is great, and blah. The people who like the movie more than the books think the quality will drop, maybe. But not me!  wink

OR! who cares!

Hatred of Harry Potter INDEED is unjustified. I HAVE read the first... 3 (or four?) books, but I don't have the energy to read the new one. That, and I'd be run out of town.

The quality wont drop but I won't be surprised to see something like:

...or maybe not

I rember the PlayStation but were does it say about the Mars?

EDIT: I think this is suppose to be in off topic discussion as it is about the books, not the movies.

the Mars was in the first book. But then, she was poor and no one had ever heard about it, so I don't think it was advert  confused

How could you read the first one and then have the energy to read the other 2 (or three)????

Of all the books I've ever read that have also been made into movies, the two HP films have been very true to their literary sources.  I credit Chris Columbus with some of the sacrifices he made to improve the motion of the first film.  The best example of this was the section about Norbert the dragon.  In the book this portion was quite a bit more complex than a movie audience would want to see, so the writers/director simplified the story and increased the motion.  The same can be said about the Dark Forest encounters.  The plot remained intact, despite the truncation of smaller points.

In the second film, it was interesting to see that the filmmakers actually drew out the Basilisk fight, when it took no more than a page to complete in the book.  This decision was the opposite of aforementioned changes, but still had the same effect: plot continuity and increased action.

The UK edition has 769 pages.
The German edition has 768 pages.
The US edition has 896, due to the larger typeface used (I'm not saying anything  smile ).

Sorted.

Haley Joel Osment has to really be kicking himself for not taking the part for the movies.

Also, I've read the first two in two days.  Not bad, but not the best.  Currently not even in my top 5, but close.

when you say "not taking the part" you mean, "the part that was only offered to british kids" right?
