Yes, he has... but to be honest, people are getting knighted for a lot of silly reasons now. Granted, Rushdie wrote a number of pretty decent books (apparently, I haven't read them so I couldn't say, but I've heard he has), but... well... isn't that it?

I swear, the moment David Beckham get's a knighthood, I'm leaving the country.

Sorry, but I'm afraid my book list is getting a big large at the moment, I've got a number of Neil Gaiman books to read and apparently I simply must read Dawkins, (although I'll be doing that with a complete open mind because unlike some I don't feel everything he says is absolute truth and I should praise the ground he walks on).

I've also got a number of other books to read and no time for Rushdie... perhaps later.

Don't forget aswell, we have what is essentially a speed reading contest on the new Harry Potter book when it comes out next month, gotta set aside a day for that!

Funny you mention that - i've just repicked up Half blood prince so that i'm back in the mood for the new one.
I've joined the masses i'm afraid.

Whats your opinions, i'm a very lateral thinker and reckon that Rowling will kill off Harry and Voldemort mainly because if she dosent for the rest of her life she'll be hounded to make another book.

Supposedly. The only reason I'd even consider reading is just to tie up loose ends.

Allegedly it was leaked, I haven't looked though. I'm, trying to keep away from HP news. Basically my only reason for reading the last one is to see how it ends.

I doubt it, there's a Harry on Ron sex scene in the new films. Only about three minutes, but it's pretty full-on apparently. Some people are criticizing Rowling for forcing new scenes onto the films to boost income.

You may not believe that, but it honestly is true.

Warner Bro's wont let her anywhere near the film set or writers room since what she did with the first two films... well that's not true, but she certainly doesn't have as much influence anymore after they found out she knows nothing about film.

Don't lie, you're also going to read it because all the other 6 were dead good and the 7th will likely be aswell. Just cos it's a kids book, doesn't mean we have to have shame!

If you pre-order the new book over at the Amazon.com, you get a free $5 certificate for the month of August! I do the Amazon Prime so I get free two-day shipping, and there's no tax, so it's a pretty good deal for me.

I'm a casual HP fan. Read all of the books once, each one was good enough to warrant reading the next. Watched the first fifteen minutes of the first movie and decided that it was bollocks.

Bollocks as in testicles? Does that mean Potter is, in fact, first class and excellent performed PORN?

She definately has some sort of influence. Apparently she was given an early screenplay of Order of the Phoenix, in which a certain character had been cut, and she basically told them that if they did that they'd have problems in the seventh movie.

Which just goes to show that she really doesn't know anything about movies. By the time the seventh movie comes out the majority of audiences (the majority being made up of non-fans and casual movie goers) will have forgotten about whatever chatacter was introduced here and would need to be introduced again anyway. If said character wasn't needed in OotP, they shouldn't have been included, it's just dead weight (my guess is, she's talking about Grawp).

It was her idea to include the Whomping Willow scene in Chamber of Secrets, a scene that most people wondered what the hell was doing there as it did nothing for the story, plot or characters and just seemed to be put in gratuitously. She probably argued that it was an important story point in Prisoner of Azkaban, but Curón had to re-introduce it there anyway in the form of the small insert of the bird being killed by it, so it really was unecessary.

There's no doubt JKR gets a little input, but she gets a hell of a lot less than she used to, the studio's learned the difference between a decent book adaption and just plastering everything from the book to the screen to please the fans (which is essentially what the first two movies did).

Ah-ha, and you know everything about movies or what? You know, you cannot just cut out important scenes from a porn movie without ruining the whole story.

Your guess is wrong (if what I've read is true) The character isn't particularly important in OOTP, but does become slightly more important in HBP (if I'm remembering correctly), by which time - I'm guessing - they would be awkward to introduce due to the circumstances. Does that even make sense?

But there are times when too little is included. Have you seen Eragon? It's like someone glanced at a synopsis of the story and decided to make the movie based on that.

I haven't seen Eragon although I'm led to believe it's almost as bad as the book.

You may as well tell me who was almost cut out of OotP.
