In the News
Jo is such an amazing person. She’s so wise. The way that she spoke about love was beautiful and nearly made me cry. I never truly understood what love was, how strong it could be, until I found my husband and we had our first child together. There is NOTHING in the world that is stronger than a mother’s love for her child. I can attest to that. I’ve never been the type to cry much either, but I have literally wept since I gave birth to my son, out of sheer joy and the pain of feeling as much love as I do for him.
I never knew that she was estranged from her father. I haven’t spoken to my father in a few years. I have never felt closer to Jo than I did while I watched that.
Wow! It was such a good interview! Thanks a lot for posting it. I love listening to JK Rowling, she’s really interesting.
Almost everything in this interview has been said before. I still loved seeing Jo on Oprah and glad that she was able to do it on her last season.
It’s so amazing! I’ve never seen any famous person speaking so honestly… she is fantastic and I’ll never stop admiring her, for who she is and what she’s done… thank you, Mrs. Rowling!
Oprah really isn’t a very good interviewer, though. She asked some weird questions, kept interrupting Jo, and she compared herself to Jo a little bit too much. Oprah isn’t anywhere near as talented, intelligent, or wise as Jo is.
I just saw the interview, and I really liked it :)
I also noticed that a few things have been said before, as Artdjmaster wrote here.
Saw it on TV and again on the video (without commercial interruptions) and it was just as inspiring. And yes she is my childhood since as a child with eye problems, reading was not something I would do as it gave me headaches. These books are a god send!!! As is JK Rowling!!!!! Many thanks for all she had done and will hopefully do in the future!!!!
I Oprah is a great interviewer. Just as Jo said in the interview. It didn’t feel like an interview. It felt like two people having a conversation to paraphrase what she said. Which meant that Jo enjoyed the interview and didn’t feel that Oprah was a bad interviewer. I enjoyed the interview and intend to look at it many times more because I enjoyed the way the two of them seemed to click. They may have talked over each other like two friends who are excited about something that they have in common – and that is to mean- two intelligent women who have come from rags to riches and who are very charitable. It’s not a contest but an enjoyment- sort of like HP going to Hogwarts for the first time .
I have to admit I was dissapointed with this, it was not what I thought it was going to be. Still interesting to hear such candid conversation between the two.
