    Probably not the right place to put this, but HBP had one of the scariest (and therefore best!) chapter's called 'The Cave'. Does anyone remember that? That had me. First time I read it was at night, and the nightmares I had...

    **** no, it's for kids. Buying it with an 'adult' sleeve doesn't change the fact it was created for 8-15 year olds.
    When I started reading the series I was 8, so then I merely carried on reading it until the series ended, which happened to be when I was 16. Why should any book be for just children or just adults anyway

    And I re-read it last week because I'd forgotten loaads of stuff in it, but now I wanna read the 7th one again!

    Im seeing the film on friday morning, so i dont see the point.
    But i was planning to re-read it.

    Thing is, i tend to get annoyed at the films for how much they leave out, so i dont wana refresh my memory...

    A gun to my head couldn't make me read HBP again.

    Am I the only one who thought it was crap?

    That series went down hill after the 5th. The 6th and 7th were horrible. :sad:

    (Prisoner of Azkaban ftw, clearly. In fact, I might just go and read that one right now... :ninjagirl:)

    Jeez you think you're a saddo? :no:
    I've read them all so many times, I lost count. It's definitely >25. Maybe not with Deathly Hallows, but that's getting close.

    Yeah I know, I need a life. :sadnod:



    And Dumbledore :sad:


    But that's nothing compared to the events of Deathly Hallows :bawling:

    i had never read a real long story in my life until i watched all 5 harry potter films and saw the trailer for the sixth film. that day, i started reading half blood prince and finished it in less than 24 hours!

    but ive been advised not to read it again as the movie is too brief

    I actually audiobooked this one, I really couldn't be bothered to read it and the last book was about to be released. So I downloaded the torrent and just listened to it. I read the last one. =)

    :shock: you've read each one more than 25 times:eek3: that's a lot, I think I'd get bored reading it that many times. I might read it again before i watch the film but I don't want to get my hopes up only to find that they haven't put in a lot of scenes from the book into the movie :sad:

    Can you read it without reading the previous books? My sister has them all at home, but I don't know fancy picking this up before the movie ? ... Can I read it as a standalone?

    I've always tended to pick up non-fiction books lol, what a g33k. :rolleyes:

    But I do have Stephen King's 'The green mile' at the moment, might have to pick these Potter books up soon, is the first one any good? It seemed a little slow, when I read like the first 5-10 pages once about 3 years ago... :cool:
