Simple question really. Myself? Not a fan. I can see the attraction but it just doesn't stimulate me. Its very rare i come across somebody who doesn't like the films or books (or both) so i thought i would see the response on here.
I can not ****ing stand the moodblood *****
I swear to god, imma shove his wand up his arse oneday!



But no really, i hate it

Hate it, hate 'fantasy' crap that'll never happen in real life and hate their annoying accents in the films.
So I take it you don't watch any TV, any films or read any books? :rolleyes:

I'm not a fan of it, I tried watching the films but never got into them. Never read the books either but I have no interest in doing that.

Because all TV/films/books are fantasy-based...

Got me there

But still, a lot of it is fantasy based.

:eek: Blasphemers!

Actually, one of my best friends hasn't read the book nor sees the appeal. Unfortunately for her, the rest of us are crazy and she has been taken to every single film by us as a party

I'm sick of christmas and this waiting around
it's like I'm sitting in the lost and found
don't take no sorcery
for anyone to see how...

I gotta get back to hogwarts
I gotta get back to school
I gotta get back to hogwarts
where everybody thinks I'm cool

back to wizards and witches, and magical beasts
to goblins and ghosts and to magical feasts
it's all that I love, and it's all that I need at
HOGWARTS, HOGWARTS

Books aren't bad. Very good for pre-teens though.

Films make me want to vomit.

There is a lot of ignorance about Harry Potter, and people just brushing it off as "kids stuff". Which is sad. It's not. The Harry Potter generation are people in their late teens- 20's. The first two books were more for children, but then the books grew darker and darker. As the characters grew up, and the reader matured with them. Deathly Hallows etc is certainly is not for pre-teens. Everyone can read them, but they are more suitable for teenagers and older.

Harry Potter is the best thing ever. It's like our weapon to combat twilight.
I think you'll find that the antidote to Twilight is primary-school literacy in combination with an IQ surpassing one's chronological age.

Besides, His Dark Materials is much better.

I don't have any interest in Harry Potter whatsoever. It is not because I don't like the mystical/fantastical elements or the fact that they are written for children but rather I just don't find them very good. If I want something fitting those criteria - I would rather read Roald Dahl.

I disagree. Originally written for children.. but they kind of mature as they go along. Would like to see a child understand any of them past Goblet of Fire.

They get dark in the end and rather deep... less of the magical kiddy stuff than in the first one....
