Because Severus Snape was the bravest man I ever knew.

Mine too! I think he's the most three-dimensional character in the book. I suppose now an argument for Dumbledore can be made as well, but because we found out everything about his backstory posthumously, it isn't quite the same as Snape.

I do wonder, though, how much of my love is related to Alan Rickman. I think he's absolutely fantastic - the best cast actor in the series. I loved Snape from the very first book onward, but Rickman made him so wonderful to watch and brought him to life. He's definitely made the character better for me, and his portrayal of Snape is exactly as I'd have imagined it to be.

Okay, granted.

That said, Sam Vimes could give our potions master a run for his money. Snape would still win, of course, but old Vimesy would be close.

BTW - my wife just bought the HP hard cover set for me as a 'becoming a dad' gift.

I'm not supposed to know, so don't tell her. But I saw the receipt.

That's pretty cool. I fell in love with reading because of the Narnia chronicles when I was in 3rd grade, so I already have a cool early edition collection of those. I am trying to build up a great library for our kids (first one due in november).

... well, I thought it was a pretty cool gift.

There is nothing wrong with Harry Potter, the problem lies with the media and over exposing a book, why don't they do the same for other children best sellers????

I wasn't a huge fan of Snape's until I saw the movie, but Rickman made me love him.

Hey Justin, here's an idea.

Step 1. Turn off your TV

Step 2. Turn off your computer.

Step 3. Go outside.

Problem solved.

I do go out. I hardly watch any tv. When I do it's usually only for 24 and thats about it. As far as the computer goes, well we all have a problem. I go out for bike rides, take photographs when I can, or go to the beach and relax.

Because Harry Potter has sold more than any other childhood best seller, maybe? It's not like Rowling went out of her way to make Harry Potter into a media giant. It's because the books are well written and the characters are loved by old and young alike that it has become famous. Much like all other books, or artists, or musicians or any other form of "famous" creative talent.

The majority of things don't become famous just because a small group of people decide it will be that way. Sometimes it genuinely is just that good and universal that a large chunk of the population will swear by it.

Ok I wlll leave this thread. But I just want to apologize to everyone. And enjoy reading the HP books, I may read them someday, but I am busy reading A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam by Karen Armstrong. Have a good night everyone. I wont be on for a while, as I will be going on vacation to Colombia and Guatemala. Keep Safe.

Great. Then you know how easy it was to avoid all the HP hype. I am a current events freak and I didn't have to work at all to avoid the coverage.

If you are sick of it, you must have gone looking for the coverage.
