    Nothing, really.....you should be a bit more considerate about other people's opinions. The chances are, most of the people who post in this section love Harry Potter, so I'd be careful on how you say stuff. It offends some people.

    Hey i'm not trying to offend anyone, i'm just trying to let other people spread their opinions,
    I know that most of the things i like other people hate, but I try to let other people say what they want to say even if it's against something I like.

    The main character. I read the books for everyone else. He's just so... ridiculously self-pitying. Moron.

    I have to say that Harry was a little over the top in the first two.

    Aside from that, I think they did a very good job of it regardless of how 'childish' some may find it. I believe that was the point.

    I hate how the wizarding world is mixed with the muggle world, and there hasn't been any conflict.

    seriously, you'd think the Muggles would have noticed something by now. in modern days you can't NOT notice all these people vanishing into brick walls and stuff without being suspicious. and we have all this technology now. there should have been cameras in the train station.

    I guess I don't like how much it's made compared to how well it's written. In my opinion, at least, there are many books out there that deserve to make money of that degree a lot more than Harry Potter. Though I can see why it's so popular, and I'm not denying that it's a great book.

    I too hated Harry/Cho...it just brought the whole book down. Other than that, I hated Harry's behavior in OotP. So infantile.

    Other than that OMGWTFYAY! Yes I am a fangirl. Snape is my babydaddy. Just look at my title and location in the sidebar. DragonQueen knows it. *Hugs for DQ*

    personally, i hate the pace in owhile JK Rolwing writes the books. take the recent HP6 book as an example, the first 20 chapters were dragging like crazy and were irrelevant to the overall plot. and when the interesting parts happen from chapter 20 to 30, they were rushed like crazy! for me, JK Rolwing better think deeper and clearly and write the final book in a well paced manner. I was disappointed in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. other than that, I also hate Ginny and Cho. These characters just annoy me so much!

    i hate how... british they are. in the most recent book they even have a chapter where they talk to the "muggle" prime minister like he's important or something.

    i also hate some of the things ron says such as "wicked!", "Oi!"(does he think he's jewish or something?) "Excellent!". it really gays up the books.

    I didn't like how the war was shoven to the background in the last two books. Since Voldemort arose again in book 4, I expected much more direct involvement in the war. Instead it's still more about Quidditch and romance than the war, especially in HBP it really disappointed me. It would have been nice if those 200 + pages spend on cliche tedious romantic developments had been spend on Harry getting stuck somewhere with Lupin and Luna (to just name some characters that were a bit left out) and go through adventure

    I don't hate Harry Potter. In fact I do enjoy reading the books, I just dislike the misconception on the part of the media that JK. Rowling single handedly propelled the fantasy genre into its popularity. Sure, Harry Potter helped, but there were plenty of people reading and writing fantasy before HP came along, and plenty of fiction out there that's just as good if not better. It deserves some recognition, too.

    Other than that, the only thing that really got on my nerves was the style in which book six was written. I think there was too much emphasis on the romance, which definitely wasn't a strong point to begin with. Plus the pacing was off, and the whole Horcrux thing just kinda popped up out of nowhere. I realise that JK has to put new things in every once in a while, but it would have been a lot more believable for me if the Horcruxes were introduced in a previous book.

    Well, there are many things about HP that I love, and many that I hate. For one thing, I have been raised to show respect for and elders and those in authority over me. I'm afraid to say that Harry does not respond to Snape very well. I understand that Snape is pretty mean. But does that make it right for Harry to lie to him and disregard his authority?

    Is it me or is the name JK Rowling a ripoff of the name J.R.R Tolkien?
