I read about half of The LIghtening Theif but then gave up on it. Not my style. But these two boys I babysit seem to love it. Not that that means much considering one just turned 6 and calls it his "big boy book" and the other is nine

I'm the one who requested this thread, as I love the book!
I have actually made a website for it, for those of you who want the link.

^^Its being made into a movie?! No way!

I read the books about 2-3yrs ago and loved 'em! I haven't had time to read the latest one yet, and Im kinda afraid to cuz i was so young when I started reading them that maybe I wont like them anymore :?

My co-worker has read them and so have 2 of her kids and they all love them. I just saw the movie trailer and it's only a short one so it doesn't show much, but what I saw I liked! I'm very intrigued by the idea, I'm on my library's waiting list right now, gotta read the book before I see the movie.

I've never read them, and I don't know a lot about them, but I've heard they're really good and the trailer looks interesting. What does it start with, so I can get them from my library?
