Thread Name: BS: Harry Potter: Book 6 (Half-Blood Prince)
Subject: RE: BS: Harry Potter:
Why all the discussion about the quality of the writing? Who is to decide and what does it matter?
It seems like really good writing to me, and age appropriate to anyone who wants to read it. I just wish I had been as smart as Ellenpoly and read the preceding two before each of the more recent ones came out. Oh well, I have them all to reread and I will.
I thought the newest one was terrific, maybe the best yet, ends with a real cliffhanger -- and I have to wait two years for the next one! And then they'll be over?
Please Ms. Rowling, what will you do next?
While I was waiting in line to pick up my prepaid copy, I picked up a copy in Irish. Well, I could read a few words, agus and some others. fun! Quick work!
We will get the audio version read by Jim Dale who is wonderful.
I have heard so many stories of reading this one by other addicts, almost like the "Where were you when...?" stories we all share after a major event.
While I recognize there are some who don't like them, don't want to read them, you are allowed but I am sorry for you.
Maybe some Mudcatter will write a song about Harry and all, maybe Marion Parsons could write one like her song about Anne with an E.
