OK, so I suffer from prereadaphobia. That's the fear of reading a book before seeing the movie for fear that the movie won't measure up to the book. Well I LOVE the Harry Potter movies so I waited until after I had seen the last movie before starting on the first book. Well my fears weren't well founded in this case. I love the book as much as the movie. Well written and well paced, the movie accurately represented the novel which isn't all that common, take The Hunger Games for instance. I understand that the book will have more details than the movie did but overall I'm pleased with both media types. Harry is progressing at Hogwarts and all the intrigue continues in his second year of his wizardry school. He-who-must-not-be-named continues to hover around the edges and flavors the entire story. If you've seen the movies and enjoyed them I highly recommend reading the books.

Aumita I personally think the book is better than the movie. The movies take out a lot of parts, but that's my opinion.
