Reading Harry Potter
Message de honpou posté le 31-10-2005 à 00:34:21 (S | E | F | I)
Hi, i m from paris, my name is Marc and i m 24 years old..; yes i m old but I’m crazy about Harry Potter books since some friends have lend them to me. So i would like to create a topic to talk about the JKR's gorgeous world and wonderful english.
Like everybody (most of people) i watched the first three movies and when i saw the ads of the Goblet Of Fire on the underground's walls i couldn't wait for anymore, so i started reading the fourth volume in french and the fifth and finally the sixth in english.That convinced me to pratice and improve my english.
So of course i didn't get all the meaning of the book understand every detail in the book and that's obviously the reason i m here.
Becareful there will be no spoiler!
My best JKR's book The JKR's book I like best is The Goblet of Fire because it s become darker and more complicated because it's darker and more complicated than the others. I like the conflict of mud and the fact there are more and more characters... and you, (what about you?) what is the
favourite book? Tell everybody why?

I have read them all and my favourite one is the fifth one. Of course the fourth one is absolutely tremendous, but the fifth one gives the plot another rythm and another direction because of the revelations made in it. The sixth one has an unexpected end.
I think that reading Harry Potter is a very good exercise, as the book has been initially written for children, sentences are not too complicated.
Though these books have been written for children, a lot of adults (like me) really enjoy reading them.

Sorry geye99 and shamrock but Dumbledore’s end story was erased at the request of members in order to keep the suspense and the pleasure to discover the story by themselves.

Hi, i m working .... hahah, no i have no work for now so let's talk about HP
Are there people who had read and watched HP? For those, i would like to know their feeling between the, sometimes, different?
Hermione Granger is physically more beautiful in the movie than the book, like long teeth, without haircut! Worse with Mad Eye (goblet of fire) i checked from internet many pictures of this unwaitingable movie, his eye are on a socket or kind thing like that...
But on the opposite sight, i found Ron a really good translation from the book, the actor is very great, he made have a blast in the room of secret (correct me) when he is front the spider

I've read and watched everything.
I agree with you Honpou, Hermione is physically more beautiful in the movie (her hair is less bushy in the film, and her teeth are smaller).
I think that the movies are good reflexions of the books taking into account that a movie has to be concise.
Though the 2 first movies are very well done, my favourite one is the third one, because of the atmosphere and the outdoor scenes (the landscape is absolutely beautiful).
I visited Christ Church College in Oxford last year, the canteen and the stairs of this college served as models for the movie. It's very strange because I had the impression to be in the movie. Did anybody else went to this college?

That sounds strange to me....Is it a homework your school asked you to do? There's a thread in the English Only section ("Reading Harry Potter") that might help you...

Harry Potter is one of the best seller this year.

I don't want to say much about the half-blood prince, because there are still too many people who hadn't read it so!!! even about the Order of Pheonix...
but I can tell, that I really appreciate the last one, it' s my best with "gof" (goblet...)
just to tease you : what do you think about Cho Chang, I ran some information and I found that everybody hates or doesn't like her... and I agree
Obviously because she is weak and selfish "and the pretty one who counts(believes) on her beautifulness to save and help her"

I've read all the Harry potter and I'm fond of these books but my favourite one is without any doubt the Half Blood Prince, because it's the darkest one, it's much more darker than the Goblet of Fire, even if I adore this book too !!!!
Telll me, what moment do you prefer in the Goblet of Fire ????

Well I couldn't agree more! Harry Potter is wonderful, J.K. ROWLING has my total admiration for making up such great adventures, new words, and a whole new world.
Making so many young people read is quite an achievement nowadays. If I could, I would give her an award for that!!! And I hope she'll get one one day.
I read the sixth volume this summer, and really enjoyed it. The evolution of Harry Potter was well done I thought... The volume which I disliked was the Fifth! I don't know why, but I was in an angry mood all along my reading of this book. I wish I could ask J.K.ROWLING if she was annoyed, when she wrote it...
I wasn't so interested with the movies. I only saw the first one, and found it pretty good, especially the Quidditch, which I couldn't picture using only my imagination!
However, I think I'm going to watch the three other films, so it will help me wait for the sixth volume... For I, like most of you people, am extremely anxious about it.
Good bye. Have a nice X-mas everyone!

Just to correct my previous answer, I just can't wait for the seventh book...
Already the seventh!!!
Then I'll be a little sad afterwards...

Hello, I'm Nirva. I'm 21. I saw several films inspired by the Harry Potter books and I'd like to read the books. Today, I went to a bookshop in order to buy it but the books they sell for adults are really big, it is like putting a brick wall in your bag. The children's version is smaller but I
won't dare to read it in the subway ! Finally I didn't bought any Harry Potter book and I'm disappointed.

When I was only read the fourth books (now I have read all), my favourite was the goblet of fire because there are conflict, and a friendly atmosphere between the three heroes. The two last book become very dark. I love it but I afraid because this is mean that is the end.
The three first: I love their because we have the impression the Hogwart is a nice school, a school where I which to be, in a magical world.
For speak about the movies: I love their and the must is The goblet of fire.
the thing that I want to do it's to read all the books in english.
(Sorry for my english but i very bad)

I didn't know that so
My favourite books are the fifth and the sixth whereas my favourite film is the fourth. But I think that the last one ( the seventh) will be so sad!!

hi everybody!at the beginning,I didn't want to read harry potter because I thought that it was a book for kids who were 8 .i was 9 years old,but I loved reading grown-ups' books.But one year later,I tried to read the second JKR's book and it was a revelation for me.Now,JKR's books are my favourite books.I have seen the 4 movies and I have been a bit disappointed,they aren't as brilliant as the books.If you don't know what to read,try the JKR's books ,you won't be dismayed!
