Harry Potter and the Tome of Deathly Dullness

I finally finished reading Harry Potter and the Tome of Deathly Dullness last night.

I am glad I read the novels, but I'm really not a huge fan of the as books. The films are ok, they look good and some of the child stars have learned to act in some of the later films....but here again I'd prefer to watch Lord of the Rings.

But I just find the books themselves unnecessarily long and drawn out when compared to other cracking children’s’ series like the Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper.

I think I will read Phillip Pullman's Dark Materials series at some point....just for comparrison.
