I feel like I am the only person in NZ who isn't Harry Potter crazy. It's unbelievable - even the lecturers at my uni are talking about Harry Potter. I don't understand. I tried reading the first book, but it just seemed kind of simplistic and a little cliched to me! I'd read Lord of the Rings instead any day!

I had to read the first book in Year 6, and I found it really boring. I haven't been able to get into since... which I'm very proud of. I don't really like fantasy writing anyway (other than from classics, like Homer) so I guess it wasn't meant to be my thing.

So no, you're most definitely not alone.

I have nothing against Harry Potter and I think it's great that tons of people love it and it is a book instead of a video game that is captivating millions of children (and adults) worldwide, but I haven't gotten into the craze yet. Maybe I will start after all the frenzy is over. ALl my friends do the parties...waiting for the movies or the books to come out and I am never invited...because they know I don't know anything about it and I really don't care.

I don't have anything against HP, I just haven't read one single book and don't intend to so so in the future. It's the hype that is getting on my nerves right now, and it will be even bigger here when the German translation of the book comes out in October.
But over all I think it's a good thing that children are reading again, instead of spending all their time on the computer.
I guess it's a good sign that books aren't "dead" after all.

Another kiwi right here!! I have nothing against Harry or JK Rowling....it's just that neither push my button. The whole HP craze is unreal....if not a little amusing...

I must say I qualify too... I've never read a single book, seen a single movie. Just don't get what all the fuss is about

It holds no appeal to me either, not read a single page or watched a minute of it, and i don't want to either,

Oh yeah.....well, I don't give a crap that you don't think anyone here give's a crap that i don't give a crap about anyone not giving a crap about HP!!!!!



But seriously i am hangin' out BAD to get the book....I got a pre-order voucher for my B'day, but the line-up at Borders was beyond stupid on Saturday and them my darling little girl has been sick so i have not got a chance getting to the shops, maybe tomorrow......and i have to say it has been so hard not to punch the lights out of every frikkin' little bastard that is trying to spoil it by telling me "I'll tell ya what happens, I've read the last chapter!"

Damn spoilers.....I have almost become a recluse!
