Harry Potter, books

(HP fan discussion)

Dont worry, I wont bore you with 10 pages of my comments of books 1-6. This will be very, very brief.

– Harry Potter and the Sorceror Stone is a fantastic but a bit short book.
J.K Rowling is a great author that she explained a lot in such a short book. She added her unique sense of humor to spice up the story. Also, by the end of the book, everyone would have been feeling sorry as well as proud of Harry. Oh, as well as dying to read the next book.
Yet, I still dont understand if it’s sorceror stone or philosopher stone, can anyone explain the difference?
– HP and the Chamber of Secrets is darker, and longer. That seems to be the trend in HP books. It was Great! Loved it! My favourate lines from it are, Dobby: “Harry Potter must not return to Hogwarts” and a line from Ginny’s poem, ” His eyes are green as freshly pickled toad” . Its movie was the best of all the HP movies, loved Dobby, the flying car, Aragog (spider) and the chamber of secrets with the basilisk.
– HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban introduced Crookshanks, Sirius, Wormtail,Lupin etc. JKR was very creative here, but I kinda prefer book 2 to this.
– HP and the Goblet of Fire was better than the other 3 books (my op). It has an exciting atmosphere with the the Quidditch World Cup and Triwizard, I mean Quadriwizard, Competition. The beginning of Ron and Hermione’s romance, cough, cough. The ending leaves you hanging, no fair. We just find out Voldemort is back, then Cedric dies, Moody is not real Moody then end! The waiting for book 5 was unnerving.
– HP and the Order of the Phoenix, HP getting older, more teenagy and angry. He gets his first date with Cho, though, I knew from beginning the relationship wouldn’t last, it was meant to be with Ginny. Readers feel anger in this book then hatred for Umbridge. The ending was so sad! Why JKR, Why, did you kill Sirius? If Harry used his christmas present from Sirius (the communication mirror) maybe Sirius wouldn’t have died. BOO HOO
– HP and the Half Blood Prince, BOO HOO HOO! Why is JKR killing all my favourate characters? Why Dumbledore? The beginning of the book was different from beginnings of other books, but it was great, it took JKR 6 years to compose the beginning of this book! I was surprised that Draco turned out to have some good in him! Also, I really dont think Snape is a traitor, eventhough he killed Dumbledore. He may have only done it because he took the unbreakable vow to help Draco. I really think he is on the good side. Here again, the ending leaves you hanging, Harry and his friends going to face the world, find the horcruxes and final battle with Voldemort. The only light parts in this book were the romances between Bill+Fleur, Tonk+Lupin and the short relationship between Harry and Ginny.

I cant wait for the 7th book. Its a pity JKR is only writing 7 books!It will be worth reading. She’ll have to explain a lot in that book and I hope harry doesnt die in the end. Better not!
