  1. I think that she shouldn't speak about Harry Potter until she writes other books related to magic and stuff. If she keeps on saying sh!t about Harry Potter, she'll end up losing all her fans.
  2. In a new clip from Harry Potter Wizard’s Collection, author J.K. Rowling and screenwriter Steve Kloves discuss one-on-one an opening scene in the Sorcerer’s Stone film and how Harry went mad. The Huffington Post UK had the exclusive reveal. You can watch the clip below or read the transcript provided by Snitch Seeker: Steve Kloves: There was this part in the script, when he was in the cupboard, I invented him a spider named Alastor, who he talked to. And he used to nick broken soldiers out of the rubbish bin, and he lined them up on the shelf. This broken army that Dudley had thrown out. J.K. Rowling: It was such a great image, the broken army. Kloves: And he used to talk to them, and the point was that he seemed slightly mad when I wrote the first draft. When Hagrid appeared, you thought he was out of his imagination for a minute. He had summoned this guy – Rowling: I think that’s a fabulous point, and that speaks so perfectly to the truth to the books, because I had it suggested that to me more than once that Harry actually did go mad in the cupboard, and that everything that happened subsequently was some sort of fantasy life he developed to save himself. Kloves: No and that’s where it came from. It came from the book. When you read the book, you make it pretty clear that he’s an abused boy. Rowling: Totally. Of course he is. Kloves: And so, there’s darkness there, and I would go with that. Did you too get the impression that Harry had went mad living in “the cupboard under the stairs” for all those years? I'm extremely sad with this possibility Please, J.K Rowling, don't you think about doing that with us LINK: http://www.hypable.com/2012/09/05/jk-rowling-steve-kloves-interview/

    Thank you Yes, that's true. We all have different tastes in our reading. I liked 'Catching Fire' better than 'The Hunger Games' but it wasn't a very big difference. Just a small difference.
  4. 'Catching Fire' (Book #2 of 'The Hunger Games' trilogy). This book is more than perfect. It's full of mysteries, surprises, happy and sad moments and of course, plenty of exciting happenings. While you read through the chapters, you don't realize what's gonna happen next. You ask yourself: What's this book gonna be about if there's supposedly no more hunger games for Katniss to be put into? And then, again, you get caught with your mouth opened when you find out what. The exciting happening about the first book was about the hunger games, in the second book there's much more than that. The games is only one third of the book. The book is perfectly written, the new characters are well placed into the story and you feel happy and/or sad when stuff happens to them. I could only care for some characters of the first book, now reading the second book I started caring and feeling deeply concerned about other characters's lives. The first happenings of the book makes you feel worried about Katniss and people around her. Later on you realize there's much more for you to worry. Suzanne Collins is totally a new icon of the literature for me. What she's done is not just a book, it's a story to be placed on our hearts and never be forgotten. 'Catching Fire' is by far the best book of this trilogy. PS: I don't know about the last one, I haven't read it yet. I'll start reading 'Mockingjay' in a few hours.

  6. I'm almost finished with reading 'Catching Fire'. It's way better than the first book, that was also pretty good.
  7. Harry Potter Books by J. K. Rowling

    I really enjoy reading Harry Potter. In my humble opinion, it's the best book series EVER!
  8. J.K. Rowling is our best Billionaire example.
  9. I've started reading this book a while ago, but I had to give it back to its owner. Since then I hadn't had the opportunity to read it. I guess I should just buy it.

  15. The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

    Thanks for the great review. As I told you, I've read the first book of 'The Kane Chronicles' but I'm waiting to finish the 'Percy Jackson' series before reading 'The Kane Chronicles' and I'm also waiting for its box set to be released.
