Question of the Day

Am I the only one who doesn't place the coming of the seventh Harry Potter book on a level with the second coming of Christ? (If you don't believe in the second coming of Christ, answer the spirit of the question if not the literal question itself.)

Maybe it's a sign of age, but I am far less likely to read a huge fantisy series as it is being written now than I would have been ten years ago.
I started potter, and made it to four. After the fourth book, I decided to wait until the series was done before reading it.
Well, the series is done, but I'm happy to wait for the national library service to finish recording it before I try to get it. Even then, if I can't download it on-line (something I hope I can do as nls mentioned at the acb convention taht the on-line download program will soon be opening up to people with qualified players,) I'll wait for the rush on cassettes to end.
I guess I got somewhat turned off of huge fantisy series after "The Wheel of time," and "A song of Ice and Fire," both fantastic series of which I have read portions, have taken forever to complete.

Re: harry potter

I think someday I'll get around to reading Potter. I've nothing against it. But by and large I'm a science fiction purist, though i'll admit I'm not sure in which category to put Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
