10:59 pm - A Review of Harry Potter #5

katiebyherself
It was great.

Okay, a little more detailed than that. J.K. Rowling's writing style has definitely matured along with her characters and her audience. While her main characters are instantly recognizable in their habits and actions, they are also very obviously teenagers now. Harry spends most of the book in a snit (ah, how I remember being fifteen!), and Hermoine and Ron are also moodier and more prone to anger and lashing out.

All the old favorites make a return, and some who were intriuging in the past are elaborated on further (such as Snape, Neville, Sirius, and Cho Chang, Harry's crush and the late Cedric's girlfriend). Some other new characters are particularly interesting, and the new Defense against the Dark Arts Professor is a real monster. I think we've all had teachers or known people like her, and I'm sure we were all glad when they were out of our lives. The Weasely family also has a very prominent part in the new book, and since I think the Weasely's rock, that made me very happy.

Yeah, I really enjoyed it. #3 remains my favorite in the whole series, but #5 definitely gave it a run for its money.

*****Slight spoiler alert: I'm going to be as oblique as possible here, but don't read this part if you haven't read the book and want to be totally surprised.*****

Three moments in #5 that absolutely broke my heart:
--when Mrs. Weasely battles a boggart.
--when Neville's mother gives him a Christmas present.
--when Harry tries to get in touch with Sirius using a mirror.

_trinity_ I am Trinity. My sister, Talisa, and I are here to tell you your futures. You can choose to heed or act like fools and ignore our warnings and predictions. We are here to help you. We are the best students of the Divination subject and extremely smart. We are pure blood and in the Ravenclaw house. However, that was a close call.

The Sorting Hat took a very long time on us. In fact, it was the longest time ever recorded. But, soon, a boy named Harry will also take a very long time. The Sorting Hat had a very hard time deciding if it should place us in Slytherin or Ravenclaw. We were nearly put in Slytherin because we will resort to any means necessary to win and gain power. But we are also very smart, kind, friendly, and fun… As long as you stay on our good side. Another of our Slytherin qualities is, we can be extremely cruel and malicious.

Listen to us. We’re never wrong. We will tell you your future, the good and bad. It is not too late to change the course of your possible actions.

hey... ya know what i thought of today??

remember when lord voldemort was in power and when he fell.. nobody knew who was acting of their own free will... aurors didn't know if the death eaters were really supporting voldie or if they were being controlled... anyways, this whole big mess happened and a lot of innocent people were sent to abazkan and guilty people were let free.. because there was no proof regarding their innocence or guilt...

well....... why didn't they just use the truth potions that Snape used in GoF (book 4) to find out if they were being controlled or not??


ANNNNDDD

nobody really knows how Harry survived voldie's curse... why don't they use the Time Turner thing and go back into time to see how he lived through it and "killed" the dark lord??

don't these things seem like the obvious thing to do??

I would like to make the statement that REAL witchcraft and magik is nothing like it is in Harry Potter. Invisibility cloaks? I wish. Unicorns and dragons? Maybe on tapestries, but that's it. Wands? Yeah, but they're used to point at stuff and we can do magik without them. Brooms? Sure, but they're used to sweep and not to fly.

Don't get me wrong, I love Harry Potter, they're awesome books. But I'm getting so sick of these ignorant people having strong opinions about things they don't understand.

One final thought: Nazis and dictators burn books. And so-called "good Christians" want to align themselves with these people?

i still haven't read the 4th book...but ya know. harry potter is still an obsession.

yeah, so on the radio last week on howard stern they were talking about the whole thing about how people burning the harry potter books and such because of them teaching "witchcraft" to their children. it really disgusts me, it reminds me of the witch trials in salem practically. are they going to hang people who read harry potter because we're "witches"? it's so fucking wrong. bah.
