reading/writing, books

Harry Potter

I'm reading the third Harry Potter book, and I'm not enjoying it as much as I enjoyed the movie (which was quite a bit). Shannon had warned me that that might be the case. For one thing, the third movie benefited from having an excellent director and, for another, the story benefited from some fairly substantial cutting. I couldn't tell you exactly what was cut out of the book, but I imagine it's some of the boring stuff. I don't remember the film well enough to know.

Note: I've long held that quidditch doesn't play as well in writing as it does on screen. Sports rarely do.
