Heard some muscle heads having a deep conversation at the gym today about Harry Potter. Kind of suprising to hear that there
I tried Harry Potter. She's a good writer, I just can't get into that fantasy stuff....
:ha: I just imagine Stallone and Arnie talking about it for some reason.
Everyone I know likes Harry Pothead, i guess it is addictive.
She's a really talented writer, and is good at being vivid without being complicated. I think that's why they're so easy to get into.
Plus, you know how pop crazes are...
true, how many people read Lord of the Rings before it came out at the movies?
how many of them would know about the Hobbit and the Simillarion?
Gunny, I read them all...SEVERAL times. And it's "Silmarillion"
You gotta give Tolkien big ups for turning a cute dragon/wizard/dwarf story into an entire world with it's own languages, alphabets, and Creation story.
i only read the Fellowship before the movie came out, my Dad has a 1954 version of LOTR, I tried it when i was about 14 and all that old english stuff put me to sleep.
My G/f has the book now but i will try it again after sheh as finished with it.
* I can never spell Silmarillion right.
btw she is loving Harry Potter.
Saw Narnia tonight, pretty good. Now I'll be interested in those books too.
I only read The Hobbit by Tolkien. A buddy read all of them and told me I had to read the LOTR books and the Silmarillion. I got the extended versions of the movies, yet he says there's still more info in the books. And reading is fun anyway :geek:
there is a tonne missing from the movies - like Tom Bombadil (thankfully) in the Fellowship of the Ring.
