Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
Series: Harry Potter #7
Okay I think I might be Confunded. I’ve always had a very vivid imagination. I remember one situation years ago where I was describing to my mother this movie that I couldn’t remember the title of and we realized it was a book with no movie version, but I had envisioned it so vividly I couldn’t tell the difference. Unless I somehow caught up in the 2 months between the publishing of this book and the beginning of this blog I have not read this book. I’m still not even sure about 6, but then there were times… oh I honestly don’t know, but here we have me reading them all nice and together finally. I don’t think I’d read it I think I’d pieced together a good picture from people’s comments so it just felt familiar. Okay so on to things. J.K. Rowling wins I sobbed during several portions but definitely during the Snape memory sequence. He still was a prat to Harry, as Dumbledore put it he saw what he wanted to see. I recently heard people saying they didn’t think Snape loved her… what?????? Onward! My dad told me yesterday movie part 2 is mostly battle so when I saw where that really got going in the book I was surprised. I suppose they decided to be cinematic and show the battle from more perspectives. I know I know I should see for myself, but sometimes I wonder if I should just not go see book movies because they tend to intrude on my own vivid imaginings. I was soooo glad to finally find out why the Hog’s Head barman was familiar!!!!! She lays her groundwork she does, though I was a little bothered by the fact apparently they barely fit under the whomping willow but last time they emerged with 3 people tied together, 2 of them grown men? Once again nitpicking. I am that person when I’m trying to think as a writer. I love all the Draco twists. I sobbed over Dobby. I chuckled aloud through tears at the image of Kreacher leading a horde of house elves armed with cutlery. I couldn’t help but grin at Mrs. Weasley taking out Bellatrix. I actually think Tonks and Lupin got me one of the worst, I suppose because I had heard about Fred, but them and their new baby. I suppose Teddy was maybe raised by his grandmother. I’ve always stood by Rowling that to write more Harry would be a bad idea I think she considered writing in the same world but where in time would she go? Historical? All and all I’ve had a fun trip I needed something to get my inner nerd remotivated, but time to return to the Muggle world for a bit.
