The book that hooked me into the series was book 3, The Prisoner of Azkaban. The way that book treated good and evil as choice rather than destiny interested me and I was impressed by the way the plot twisted. I had tried to read book one about two years prior and had also put it down about six chapters in, but I read book one again after loving book three and found it much more interesting the second time around.

I've never read a Harry Potter book. I saw the first couple of movies, but just don't really care enough to keep seeing them...

'Cept for the movies.
But I hear ya on that one.

I've heard so much about Harry Potter that I am just sick of it. Period.
I tried to watch the first movie. Was not happening. I was too easily bored by it and fell asleep.

I don't give a crap about Harry Potter. Big time nerdsville.

. But I suppose we U2 fans look a bit nerdy to outsiders as well. The Eminem demographic could kick our asses and stuff us into our lockers after stealing our lunch money.

Star Wars sheets & curtains, baby!

I think Harry Potter is great...it's so easy to knock something that's become universally popular. I've never read the books, but I've seen every movie, except for the latest. As in most adaptations, the books are probably even better. The great thing about the series is how it fuels creativity and imagination...and how it channels the inner kid in people who maybe are aren't so little. As for the legitimate kids, if this kind of thing actually motivates them to start reading, that's the kind of success that endures.

Edit: I currently have more manly curtains...just want everyone to know that.

For sure. Reading this thread also reminds me of trying to convince people U2 don't suck, aren't boring, you need to listen to the later stuff, etc. It's so hard to really know something is so good and want to share it, and have people brush it off or even worse, laugh it off, even ridiculing you for your fandom

They say the same things, "I heard the first couple albums, meh, not for me" "I don't get what all the fuss is about" then it's "boring old farts, they suck" "haven't done anything good since Joshua Tree" or even "all their songs sound alike" I want to say 'but but but BUT if you'd only give ____ a chance..." It's the same with HP. I know a lot of people who put it down would like it if they got into it, but they won't.
