I’d seen every movie. My kids had read the books; more than once. I refused to be sucked in. So 7 years after the first book was published, I finally set out on a journey to read these books. To my surprise I really did enjoy them. As I read them I found my mind following the movie. Yes, as far as I could remember the movies they followed very closely. It took me ten months to complete all seven; a good chunk of my reading life but, I’m glad I did it. For those of you putting it off because they are your “kids” books. Don’t! They are worth the time.
I enjoyed all the books but I have to say that I guess I wasn’t “in tune” enough because it was the last book that I kept having those “aha” moments! I can’t believe I didn’t catch on to some of the things that I probably should have. Even after “watching” the movies. (because I am up and down throughout a movie I miss a lot)
So now I hear there is an eighth book that recently came out. I haven’t checked into it but I hope it is not another 700 pager! LOL!
