Aint it Cool reviews

Posted by: Melissa

As always, Ain't It Cool has posted some early reviews - in this, one is positive and one is negative, but Harry says the second (negative) one seemed "off kilter" (I haven't read it yet, will agree/disagree in a moment) - but the positive one does include this frustrating line: :

Kenneth Branagh – Is there any possibility that they didn’t really pick up on the fact that Gilderoy Lockheart is meant to be suave, sophisticated and charming albeit completely shallow and a tad narcissistic?
A tad narcissistic? Isn't that a bit like saying Voldemort is just a tad evil?

Edited to add - about that negative review:

In the age old tradition of children's entertainment it portrays that writing under the influence of drugs will make you a shed load of cash.
That says it all right there, doesn't it? Consider the source - some reviewers are just not meant to be listened to. This is obivously one of them.

Some people just don’t get it! Re-read before you decide to give your professional review, dummies! (Sorry…lol)

Guess That Book

Hermione was checking Harry and Ron's Charms homework for them. She would never let them copy ("How will you [br]learn?"), but by asking her to read it through, they got the right answers anyway.
