That's the beginning of the end for the HP books. Stop reading it, watch the movie. Movie was pretty good. :) In fact from here on out just watch the movies, they're much more enjoyable than the rest of the books.

I very much agree with this. *especially* regarding book 5/ movie 5.

Wow, and see I heard a lot of people didn't like the fifth movie.

The only thing the movie lost was about 200 pages of teenage whining. :-p I remember teenage wangsting well enough to not need the refresher course.

Truthfully though, the HP books are some of the only ones where I've generally liked the movies more than the books. And mostly, that has to do with the fact that while the books are fun and all, in my opinion there're some weaknesses in the writing that detract from the story, which the movies can gloss over or improve on.

Really? That's a little depressing. Do the next few books just have bad plot or something? I am spoiled for some character death, so that doesn't bother me so much even if I like a couple of the characters. Amazingly, I am very unspoiled for the last book.

I started reading the books after I watched every movie - except for 5 as I haven't watched it yet - and that never stopped my enjoyment. I'm just not sure why I can't get into this one.
