Harry Potter/Daniel Radcliffe
If you haven't read any of the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling, I suggest you find yourselves copies and have a read, they really are very good. I'm a hopeless reader (it took me over a year to plod through "The Hobbit") yet I managed to churn through all four Harry Potter books in two and a half weeks!

I'm still undecided on whether they'd be a good thing for Christian children to read. For the most part I think they'd be fine, there's just that small chance that a playful interest in magic could turn into a more dangerous interest in real witchcraft. I guess it's something parents should decide on, and use as an opportunity to discuss these sorts of things with their children.

As an adult though, they're fantastic, I enjoyed them immensly. The movies were great too, I just saw "The Philosopher's Stone" again recently and loved it all over again, especially the score by John Williams (who is still going strong at age 70 - I wonder what Steven Spielberg will do if he dies - John Williams has written the music for all of Spielberg's movies except Duel and the Color Purple).. oops I digress.. I meant to say that I feel kinda sorry for Daniel Radcliffe who plays Harry .. it must be weird to walk around any shopping centre and be surrounded by pictures of yourself!!

Anyways, read the books, see the movies, enjoy :)
