hi
i like the novel of harry potter and film also .it was amazing.the film is full of magic, fantasy and horror.i never seen the movie like this.i like the caracter of harry potter. Ron/Harmoine and harry potter act very well in this movie. i want to meet harry potter hermoinee and ron. but i think it is not posible because they are in amarica and i m here in pakistan :)
but i must say them to act all the parts of the harry potter's movie. i really very sorry to hear the news that the dumbledor fell in cancer. i pray for him.ok now then
bye.

This book was one of the few books that i've actually gotten "hooked" too. Usually I'm not big on reading and i get bored very fast. But this book I was interested into and kept reading. I highly recamend reading Harry potter books. all my friends have read them too and they love them!!!
