taking a break...

...from harry potter.

60 pages in to book 4, here are some thoughts:

these are great "classic" children's/young adult books. on par with alice's adventures in wonderland , peter pan, etc... fun stuff.

i am a little let down, however. after what my friends have been telling me, i guess i was just expecting too much. book 3 didnt seem any greater than the first two.

i'm kind of bored with quidditch.

overall i am pretty entertained by these books and hope finish the series before the end of the year.

I value your opinion here, and therefore I am saving my time and I am not going to read Harry Potter (waiting for Alice or others to shun me...) ;)

it is also ok not to finish the book or the series. I havent read any of the books nor do i plan on it.

Maybe you didn't read it right. I'm going to say it was user-error that made you not love #3...I mean, the ending alone was far superior to the first two combined.

Don't lose hope...the series ending is really strong.

These are fun books. Too bad you are taking them too seriously.

Seriously, thought, hop you are having a great trip.
