Detective TurtleHolmes wrote:Well, you might hate Harry Potter books, but what JK Rowling has done to make kids actually want to read is monumental. She has created an appealing fantasy world, with entertaining plots and characters, but that isn't half of the "magic", excuse the pun. She has created a lust for the written word by the newest generation that not many other authors can do. That is her real accomplishment.
Now sit down.
Rainswept wrote:You have very odd tastes. I watch both those shows, and enjoyed Dexter enough to read the books (Only read the 1st 2, the 3rd sucks ass) but I'd hardly call it literature. Carnivale kept me watching for some reason I don't fully understand, but all in all I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
If I were picking a tv/film to call literature, I'd go with Casablanca and The Shawshank Redemption.

Me too. In fact, I refused to read Harry Potter for seven years because it was so trendy. Once I got to the point where I no longer encountered anyone reading book 7 on the subway, that's when I finally agreed to read the series.
