هذه السلسلة الجديدة بالتأكيد تصلح لمهوسيين هاري بوتر
الرواية طبعاً وليس الفيلم
فسلسلة الأفلام لا تحمل حتى 1%من بهاء الرواية و سحرها

I'd read this in a review of a friend and I said to myself that I like long dialogs, it shouldn't be a problem. Well, turns out I was wrong. Also, Lippert uses his imagination and makes stuff up t
When the Harry Potter book series finished it didn't quite dawn on me that it was 'the end', I knew I could quench my magical needs by just watching the films, but that was until the last instalment of the Harry Potter film came out. It was then whilst sitting in the cinema I finally realized there isn't going to be any more Harry Potter. Sounds quite sad now I'm admitting it, but I actually had a little silent cry to myself, in the cinema, with my brother staring weirdly at me.
