Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you liked or didn't like the books. Read a synopsis if you never read her books. You'll still miss a bit of the humor but that's okay.

Don't see it if you don't like fantasies and can't handle one long day (matinee and evening) or two nights in a row.

Also The special effects are wonderful. But not overdone which makes it so ... Read more Read less
