I was just shocked by the news Eclipse apparently had knocked Deathly Hallows off it's number one rank on some selling list thingy, at some point. I don't know when and for how long but I heard it had.
And it's ridiculous. RIDICULOUS! People, we're talking about the final part of the epic Harry Potter saga here, the one filled with action and emotion, the one that ends the entire, colourful and tragic yet childlike story the world got to follow for soooo many YEARS. O__O
Of course it's a matter of an opinion how good people think the Deathly Hallows is but I've hard time believeing anyone would think it anything else but at least one of the best parts of the saga. Persoanlly, I think it's clearly the best of the seven.
Anyways... As it's been said before, selling ranks don't necessarely mean a thing, (they do generally but not absolutely), when it comes to how good a book (serie) is.
See, I was wondering, how many think like me; that Twilight's succes - at least by now - is probably significantly to do with not the teenagers buying copies of the book because they're obsessively in love with the story & they think it's good - but the success is more likely caused by the over-rative hype that is making it SEEM good, and of course because it's advertised as vampire book serie, (which it however basically so is not, for various valid reasons.) I mean, vampires are timeless.
And so, there probably are many people who in this situation won't bother to even look into the thing but go buy the book blindly because "it's so popuölar and about vampires" and then... they'll see. :P
