Harry Potter, one more time

I finished the first book last month and although I liked it okay, it didn't really thrill me all that much. (Controversial stuff aside, it wasn't that, I just really didn't care for the book that much.) I decided to at least read one more and decide where to go from there. Well I'm about 1/3 of the way through the second book and I still don't care for it. It just doesn't interest me.

So....one more time.....do you think there is still a chance I will like it eventually, should I keep plugging along for awhile yet? OR, if I don't like it by now, do you think I probably never will?

I know you can't know for sure if I will eventually get into it or not, but, take a guess! :-)

EDIT: Thanks to all who commented for your input on my questions. I think I will indeed bring this book back to the library unfinished. Maybe someday if I'm stranded on a deserted island with nothing but the Harry Potter series, I will read it then. Thanks again!

As someone who likes the series quite a bit, if you haven't taken to it yet, I wouldn't spend much more time with the series. It's not worth your time. Not every book is going to appeal to everyone and it sounds like this may be an instance where this one just isn't for you. I'm sure you won't hurt for reading material if you skip the rest of the series. :-)

I liked Harry a lot but I was hooked after the first book. I am with LF. If you don't like it by now it's probably not worth your time.

Find something else you LOVE! :)

I agree - if you're not hooked by now, it's probably not your cup of tea. Good for you for having an open enough mind to try it, though!
