There is this thought I've been pondering on for quite some time. I cannot seem to wrap it up in a nice, tight, simple, package. Oh well, that's probably is the same as the way I write, so I think I'll meander around, and let the stream of consciousness thing have a go at it.
First off, it's important to remember I have a wonderful imagination, always have and value that along with my dreams as keeping me balanced and somewhat normal throughout my life.
I've mot read any of the Harry Potter books, and believe them so immensely popular many young ones that never read books probably did read this series, and I think that's great! I did watch the first Harry Potter movie and found it delightfully charming. On television last week they played the entire series and I watched some of all the movies.
The books and movies have been overwhelming successful, well beyond what anyone could of ever imagined. This has created a never ending onslaught of similar books and movies per my belief as the money takes over. This has also carried over to television in a big way!
My question is, has the books and sequels of the many other ones that jumped on that long, long bandwagon been good or bad for the forming minds of the past generation or two?
