I admit it - I'm not a fan. I don't have anything against it, it just never drew me in like it drew others in. I read the first one and thought it was okay. I read half the second one and couldn't finish it. I don't know why. I couldn't get into LOTR, either. And it's not that I don't like to read - I LOVE reading. I just have different tastes in the fiction I do like. I do read a lot of non-fiction as well - magazines, reference books and currently some books for some classes I'm taking.
Hubby, on the other hand, is currently sucked into book 7. Last week he read books 5 and 6 to prep for #7.
