What favorite book is a dating deal-breaker?

  • Terry, USGS Crew : I have great taste in women! When have I ever steered you wrong?

Harry Dalton : What about Astrid?

Terry, USGS Crew : What about Astrid? I thought the two of you would have a lot in common. She said she was into rocks.

Harry Dalton : Crystals, Terry. Crystals. Not rocks. Crystals.

I’ve never had any interest in Harry Potter, but my daughter asked me to watch The Prisoner of Azkaban with her. It’s really rather good. I’ll start reading the books to her.

I’m certain Ian Brown is in it. Either that or a doppelganger.

The Prisoner of Azkaban is the best movie of the series and the book is also amongst the best one … if you are willing to overlook the time travel trope as that sort of invalidates everything. The director is Alfonso Cuaron so that was to be expected.

If you read the whole series you can see Rowling’s writing skills evolving from ‘amateur storyteller’ to ‘proper writer’. She got the hang of it a lot faster than most.

Wasn’t overly impressed with the movies.

Yeah. The first one most closely follows the book, which is why I like it. I don’t like the first Dumbledore though. He was a bit intense.

I hated all the movies, myself. They were too different to the book.
