Guest, leeneia

I have never worked in a childrens library or any other library. I have read loads and loads of childrens books both as a child and as an adult. I have read childrens books to my 5 children. I have read adult books to my 5 children. If you think Harry Potter is too violent I suggest you stay in the library because the real world just isn't the right place for you.

Not getting at you personaly, honest, I don't know you! I just think you need to think through some of your comments. Perhaps you could convince me otherwise. What do you rate as non-violent childrens literature? Jack and the Beanstalk? Little Red Riding Hood? Hansel and Gretel?

Let is know.

Looking forward to your response.

In the original version of 'Goldilocks' (a gentle story about vagrancy, breaking and entering, theft, vandalism and animal cruelty), the bears eat Goldilocks instead of the porrige.

What about one of the older versions of Sleeping Beauty where the prince RAPES her and she doesn't awaken until her twin children are put to her breast?

Or Rapupnzel - where the prince's eyes are put out with thorns?

well I thought it started off pretty well... certainly grabbed me more than the last one did (it took ages of willing myself to keep reading before it got me interested)

the ending was good but sad...... but the middle was just so annoying ... all that teen angst & snogging..... bleuch!!! fair enough its what teenagers do ... but surely we could have had some adventures too!!

would have rathered they'd went off and found a few more horcruxes....

looking forward to the last book.....

I wished I'd re-read the previous book (although that would meand wading through the beginning again) just so I remembered more relating to the characters in the latest book.

Okay, so it was Dementor pee.

Just finished rereading "Harry Potter and the Odour of the Penis" and it occurs to me that Harry himself may prove to be the last horcrux, though unintentional. Voldemort wouldn't have known about the one Regulus Black destroyed, perhaps returning an piece of soul to Voldemort which he inadvertantly passed to Harry when he tried to kill him as a baby.

I suspect both Neville and the Weasley twins' joke shop will feature prominently in the last book. Rowling likes her underdogs, and she was gretly insired by Tolkien. Neville may have to try to destroy Harry (out of friendship) to kill Voldemort.

Goldilocks - a very moral tale really, till they toned it down, and made it a bit pointless, since the bears would only have eaten her because she'd eaten their porridge. What goes around comes around. Don't go round ripping off bears...

Last week, while waiting in line to get tickets for Two gentlemen of Verona, I went to the garbage bin to throw out my teacup. There on top of the the pile was a copy of the current HP. It had definitely been to the wars and looked as though it had been thrown against things for a while. No pages were missing. [That was sure a quick run from the shelves to the trash.] I retrieved it and gave it to a friend who had not yet read it.

EBarnacle:

LOL! I can certainly understand someone flinging Half-Blood Prince into the trash because the reader was upset with what the author had done to her characters!

I once did the same thing with the last book of The Lymond Chronicles (Checkmate, I think) by Dorothy Dunnett. I reached the place where one of her characters was killed, and it made so much sense to the plot that I believed it had happened--I threw the thing against the wall and screamed at her that "it wasn't FAIR" and "how dare she do that to me?"

Fortunately, I eventually picked it up and finished it. I was much happier with Ms. Dunnett after that.

And I'll be standing in line for the next Harry Potter, just like I was for the last two.

By the way, since when are mysteries not considered literature? They have been considered so since shortly after the days of pulp fiction. I defy anyone to tell me that John D. MacDonald (one of the many excellent mystery authors) didn't write good literature!

John D MacDonald has long been one of my favorite authors. I am still finding stuff I hadn't read at rummage sales and their ilk.

Try Spider Robinson, his Callahan series [and other writings] are always fun. Definitely writes a good stick.

Here's another vote for John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee series, though I read him more for the asides and reflections on humanity/society than for the mysteries themselves. I read a sci-fi by him that was pretty good too.

I've read most of his "color" series and enjoyed them. But on the whole I enjoyed the last two Potter books, both of which I just re-read, more.

I mean, how could cat-like reactions with a .38 or sawed off shotgun ever compare to a quick-witted Expeliarmus!!!?

Amos, one of the reasons I consider John D. MacDonald literature is that he very, very seldom has his heroes exhibit their "cat-like reactions with a .38 or sawed off shotgun." His books are more about his characters and life in general than anything else, and Travis just ain't your standard salvage consultant. I love MacDonald's books, as Cluin says, for the asides and reflections on humanity/society. He's turned me on to some things I would be sorry to have missed--Billie Holiday, for instance (see The Girl, the Gold Watch, and Everything, one of his three science fiction-fantasy novels. The others are, I believe, Ballroom of the Skies and Wine of the Dreamers.) I've collected his books, Travis and non-, since I was a teenager and I think I have all of them--around 70 or so. He's one of the three writers whose books, even in my earlier financially-challenged days, I bought in hardback because I liked him so much. (The others were Dick Francis and Elizabeth Peters.)

And yes, EBarnacle, I've read Spider Robinson's Callahan books, too. Jake has some pretty good reflections and social commentary himself.

But back to Harry Potter--Ms. Rowling is a darned good writer, and I have all the HP books too--but by my former criteria, I would probably have waited until the paperbacks came out.

Books! You can't have too many!

Lin, when I moved to Guam I was moved by a professional moving company. When they arrived that morning at my one bedroom apartment they arrived with the little truck and two men. They were confident and satisfied they could get me packed in half a day. Then I showed them the storage closet in the basement. They called for back up and a larger truck.

At the end of the day, late, as they were closing up the doors on the large truck their "backup" brought with them, the supervisor said to me, "If I never see another book for as long as I live, it will be too soon."

They believed you can have too many books. I did not agree with them and still don't.
