It has been confirmed by J.K.Rowling. Harry Potter book 6 is going to be called Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

This was the original title for the chamber of secrets, but she later changed her mind. What does everyone think of this title?

You'd better get used to it if you're a Harry Potter fan!

She also confirmed that the Half Blood Prince is neither Voldemort or Harry.

I guess I could get used to that title. Not that good, but I guess I could live with it. So I suppose Voldermort is going to be a huge part in the book? When does it come out?

Rate your work better? Thats because you have a miguided, overreaching sense of self worth.

Whats Harry Potter? I've never heard of it, can someone fill me in the some cliff notes? It sounds big and I don't want to miss out on all this excitment.

Except for the fact I said my work's crap :D

Just Harry Potter's worse...it's seriously the most overrated trash I've ever read...the style is too simplistic, it lacks real depth in the descriptive narrative, the characters feel dense and wooden and you don't really care what happens to them (which is somewhat crucial)...as for the plots...they're so transparent and dull...they just don't captivate me at all.

Pffft...right...for children's books...they're decent, but nothing amazing...but considering how many adults read them that worries me...are we just a world of illiterate idiots? I hope not...I sincerely do...and I hope adults don't call that serious reading...

If they're illiterate, how do they read them?

I've never really gotten into Harry Potter. But I'm not a big book fan. I've been meaning to start reading but everytime I start a movie comes out and it's just a lot easier than reading 5000 pages. But with the half book I read, I thought it was good. I was just too lazy to read the whole thing. If the movies entertain me I'm sure the books will as I've been told it's the exact same thing pretty much. Unlike some movies who are supposed to be based on books.

I don't mind the Harry Potter books, I liked the 5th one cause I could relate to his moodswings (being on anti-depressants) and I don't really care what the next one's called so long as its good.

Oh, I like the Harry Potter books!! I was so excited about the new title being announced yesterday, although it took a little while to get used to. It seems so different from all of the others- I don't know!?! I can't waite for the book to actually come out (and I hope it is good)!!!

(being on anti-depressants)

Oooh...I stopped taking my meds (no jokes please) because of I just didn't like who I was when I was on them...depression is SO much better...

Mood swings be bad...what...Harry Potter getting dark and gritty? :eek:

Yeah I don't take em in the holidays (Which it is now) I hang out on the net so the phone's engaged so I don't have to talk to anybody from school, because in the immortal words of the Strokes:

"see people they don't understand, no girlfriends they don't understand, no spaceships they won't understand, and on toppa this I ain't ever gonna understand..."

But its SO fun saving up the ones you don't take then taking them with a shot of vodka at a party! I used to be a depressive drunk but now...lol

It sure does suck being a depressive drunk, before I discovered anti-depressants I would spend the ends of most parties in tears till the alcohol wore off slightly.
Some friends of mine LAST holidays took Neurofen while drinking, and one of them was hallucinating, while the other three were running around the streets at two o'clock in the morning knocking on people's doors, then running and lying on the road so the house owners couldn't see them...It was quite funny.
That reminds me of a guy I used to know (Benji the drug lord) Who used to sell his ADD medication at school. Made quite a profit I understand.

Anyway back to Harry Potter. Yeah the 5th book's my fav cause he's all moody and realistic. He yells at people for reasons nobody else understands, and I can relate to that. Well. Obviously except the bit about seeing people die etc etc etc. :)

Experience and common sense tell me those anti-depressant pills are there for a reason, you're supposed to take them *every* day, and something tells me saving them all up to take at a party while drinking just isn't safe.

But yeah...Harry Potter. I've read the books, and enjoyed them, but I'm not obsessed like some people I know. My friend Ashley is like...die hard Harry Potter fan. She got to see the new movie when we were in London (I was like...yeah, you do that...I'm going to the British Museum...) and she was beyond happy, so then when the movie was over I got to walk around forevor so she could find platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross.

Sarah
02-07-2004, 07:23 PM
She must have been looking forever then. Considering there is no wall between platform 9 and 10. Is there even a platform 10?

Kelsey
02-07-2004, 07:33 PM
There's a sign that's posted up. We were looking *forevor* and got off at the Kings Cross station (the metro one I guess) and looked around there and there was a sign that said 9 3/4 on some random wall. Our other friends had found it first and had told us about it, thats why I dedicated so much time into following her around trustingly. We have pictures of it.

Sarah

Ah, sounds funny. I've never seen that, but the last time I went to London was August 2001 and that was before the first film came out, so it wasn't majorly big.

Bah...safe schmafe...sounds like fun :) As for "supposed to"...I've rarely ever done what I'm supposed to :p

British Museum rocks...hope you got to see Senate House on your way there as both Cliff and Frank will testify it is one beautiful building...it's like the Ghostbusters building only cooler. "We have ways of making you learn"..."You will learn".

Hehe...loving the story about the platform...

What's this? Sarah and Kelsey being amicable on a thread? Is this a sign of the apocalypse?

Yeah well, live fast die young. If you've ever BEEN on anti-depressants you'd know how different you are after taking them. Even at school I only have em every second day cause its chapel and stuff.

Yes yes...please...can we not go into anti-depressants and depression? Let's not forget that noone on here knows anyone else...you don't know who's had depression, who's had meds, who's been suicidal, who's self-harmed, who's had drink problems etc...

So shall we leave it now? Thank you :)

I've grown up in the past week. :p

Either that or Kelsey has <ducks>
