"Love Story" is one of those books that just makes me nauseous at the thought of it. Torture for me would be making me sit through a viewing of the movie.

You're welcome. It's a favourite around our house for exorcising undesirable earworms, and inflicting new ones.

I did at an early, impressionable age, and never been quite right since.

It could well help rehabilitation of insane, psychotic, edge/chainsaw wielding mass murderers though...........
They'd prob'ly top themselves rather than sit through it again........

And the US Kindle preorder price is $19.99.

I think I'll wait. It definitely sounds like something I'd enjoy, but I have a very long to-be-read list, so I don't exactly need to buy any more books this year (or next year) before I run out. On the other hand, I'm not entirely sure I'll manage to hold out.

Time will tell, I suppose!

That price could very well turn out to be as fictional as the plot. Little, Brown & Co = Hachette = just agreed to the DOJ settlement offer. I'd definitely wait until closer to September before purchasing.

Ah, but with Amazon's "pre-order price guarantee" you don't have to wait! Pre-order now and if the price drops before release date, you'll pay the lower price.

Not that I really pre-order anything (except that Amazon pre-order freebies which may or may not be pricing errors).

Don't assume what you do not know about does/did not exist ;-)
When I was in High School in the 70s, all my friends read Tolkein. We loved Fantasy, but we all read the same books because there weren't very many of them. The fantasy section in our bookstore (which was part of sci-f) was tiny. The whole sci-fi section was tiny. There was Norton, Burroughs, Bradbury, Perry Rhodan translations, and a half a dozen other individual books.

When I went to see Star Wars, opening night, I was shocked. I had never been to a science fiction movie where more than half the seats were filled, and here the line went out the door. And I went to a lot of sci-fi movies. You can argue about who made the biggest difference, but there IS a BIG difference in the sci-fi and fantasy audiences now and those of just a few decades ago.

As for Rowling, I think most people who denigrate her writing do so because they think it makes them sound sophisticated somehow. (Railing against something so popular always makes you cool, right?) Nobody who knows writing and has read hers, believes that she is less than a competent writer. Some have criticized her because her ideas are synthesized from existing legends and mythology rather than original. Speaking as one who has tried, it is difficult to take so many disparate legends and weave them into one cohesive sophisticated story-- which Harry Potter is.
