Harry Potter

Finally read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The Dementors have done too much soul-sucking around the place for me to enjoy the book. And where all manner of humor or happiness has vanished from the world of the book, “snogging” has entered big time, and fifteen year olds are asserting their rights to kiss whoever they want wherever they want. Jolly good for a Star World soap, pathetic for a book about witches and wizards. If you’re trying to tell me they’re human too, I wish they would also display human common sense. Addle-brained Harry makes me livid, and so does practically everyone else.
Dear all who spent the night to get hold of a copy of the book 15 nanoseconds after it was released, would you like a pirated CD of Mangle Pandey?

Just re-read Malory towers this weekend - HP is nowhere near these. I was also struck by the "borrowed" ideas including a special train, 4 towers of the school etc.

I was asked to join the book sale party... and I enjoyed it. Got my book at 20 minutes past mid-night. Hardcover! Can you send me the CD now?
