    Well it is a movie so they can't have every little detail in there and somethings can't be expressed in film and thus substitutaions or deletions have to be made. Read the Fourth book and you'll see how very very different the book is from the film.

    They missed out the most in the fifth book, because it's the longest.
    I actually get angry at the movies because they miss out so much good stuff.
    But then I suppose it's impossible to cram everything in a 700 page book into a movie.
    Still though, disappointing.

    I didn't read the 5th one mainly because it was too long and I couldn't understand the concept. I was 10 at the time. But I heard that they did skip a lot of the book.

    No this isn't about the 7th book

    Woah.. I never realized there was that much of a difference, I have been tempted to read to books just because everyone says their so good.

    So I can either read them, which I haven't got much time for, or, I could get the audio books and put them on my ipod to listen too while I'm on the bus to places and such.. (I can't read books while I'm on the bus.. I get distracted too easily it just doesn't work)

    Plus Stephen Fry does the audio books, which is an uber bonus ^_^

    I agree, I read the fifth book just before watching the movie and there was a large difference. I don't mind to much, trying to turn a 700 page book into a 2.5 hour movie must not be the easiest job in the world. The books are great so I don't mind if they're long!
