On a lighter note, I read book 5 – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – last weekend and saw the movie this past week. The book was, of course, much better than the movie. I understand that parts of the book needed to be cut to fit a script into a reasonable length, but what was left was pretty disjointed. The most disturbing though were the parts that were mostly cut, but little bits left in with no context or explanation. Much of the rest of the night was spent discussing the movie, and filling parts in for my wife who’d not read the book.
Yesterday and today I read book 6, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and this afternoon started the final one, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I may not get to sleep tonight, there are plenty of pages to go.
[nope, didn’t make it through that night. but I did finish Sunday afternoon. Very Good Book.]
