Re: Harry Potter
I resisted the books for a long time, despite recommendations from friends, because I wasn't interested in what I thought was a children's fantasy story. I'm not normally into that sort of thing. But I took the plunge and read the first book, then devoured the rest of them. I think they're great.
The movies don't live up to the books (they never do) but I've still really enjoyed them. I liked the finale a lot but thought it fell just short of being great. Still, it's a fine ending to the series.
