Harry Potter

Is ‘Harry Potter’ by the book? I’ll admit I’m planning to see the Harry Potter movie at some point, but I haven’t read any of the books and am curious if folks thought they were a worthwhile read.

    My wife and I have read through all the Harry Potter books and really enjoyed them. Good imaginative fiction with a moral compass and touches of Christian symbolism. I hear that J.K. Rowling has now seen the final edit of the film and thought it was great. That’s encouraging–sometimes authors don’t particularly care for how their books appear on screen.

    Um…what about Harry Potter being satanic?? Geez!

    Satanic? Huh? I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Jay, I thought they were all good. The latest one is the best but it is good because of some changes which take place… which means it is good especially if you’ve already read the previous 3 books. I’m sure you would enjoy them (and the used book market should be glutted!).
