Wow. You are a nerd! Thanks, that line made my day.

I can't remember every having harry potter dreams, but I had two or three Heart of Darkness dreams when I was in school.

I agree 100% Varitek. That was my main criticism of the 4th movie. I felt that it was too dark right away. Part of the 'magic' of the GoF is that it starts off so warm and wonderful (the burrow and the QWC) and gets soiled by the death eaters. I think that book really is about the lack of innocence, but the movie never shows the innocence.

Any ways, now that Harry has shown his man material to the world, I suppose innocence is out of the question!

From the back of the UK Adult version:

"The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling ..."

Am I the only one that thinks that Storytelling should have married her by now?

Indeed, although that is not quite the extent of my nerdom. I'm a Discworld fan too.

Ha ha.

I got a dirty look from a college girl last week in Cancun. she was sitting near my wife and I reading American pastoral, so we struck up a conversation about literature that lasted for about 45 minutes until she asked me what I was reading - I pulled out the Chamber of Secrets.

Apparently she expected better of me?

The UK children's cover is quite possibly the most hideous thing I have ever seen. I like the grown-ups' one, though.

anyone know how to get the UK version of the books if you're in America? I do mean, without actually going there to get them.
haha

Amazon.co.uk or Waterstones.com. I think Waterstone's shipping is less expensive, but the book will take longer to arrive.

A few more cover tidbits:

Harry's got a locket around his neck, most likely Slytherin's locket...and most likely the real one.

They're not using wands. So, either they're both reaching for something, or Harry's gotten so strong he can do magic without a wand...

Newsweek or US News or somebody claimed that Harry doesn't have his scar on the cover, which would be pretty significant. However, if you look at the large version U2girl posted, I think it's there..but looks kind of like hair.
