Re: Harry Potter

I really like the HP books. I've noticed that as the seiries goes on, and the character ages, the books become darker. Each story becomes more sinister, more people start to die. It's apparant in the movies as well. if you were to watch the first movie, so full of colors that stand out, and the final movie (or part 1 of the final movie) everything is gloomy, grey, and depressing. you will notice a complete change of atmosphere. I believe this change started in the 4th book

Totally true. It also corresponds with the length of the books doubling from book 4 on. I loved them, and read them all in about a week. . .

Re: Harry Potter

Harry Potter.

Can we have a poll about who likes the Character Harry Potter? Because I have noticed that through the entire 5 book he treats his friends like crap.

Has anyone noticed that the least talked about house is ravenclaw? That kinda pisses me off because that's my house.

I've read every book 2 times, my whole family, (minus mom and dad), loves em.

About a month ago my mom bought my family 2 day park hopper passes to harry potter world! I bought a wand 31 dollars for anyone who cared. And a ravenclaw scarf. 35 dollars.

Why do they call it harry potter world? More people are involved in the series than only harry potter.

I'm the fart in the air conditioning, I'm always there, but usually, you never notice.

He's the chosen one, and the series is also called Harry Potter and the... It would also sell more than Ron Weasley world. I however am a fan of them just calling it Hogwarts.

Re: Harry Potter

It's absolutely amazing I've missed this thread for this long.

I'll preface by saying that I've read every Potter book at least 3 times. I've probably read Goblet of Fire and Deathly Hallows 6+ times.

You're right, he treats everyone like crap for this whole book. However, this is done on purpose by JKR, and is meant to reflect the fact that now that Voldemort is back, his connection to Harry's mind (i.e., the piece of his soul residing in his head) is causing Harry to experience more rage and behave more aggressively. Once Voldything starts to be afraid of the connection at the end of OotP and in HBP, Harry's OK again.

Yeah... Hufflepuff doesn't really get any love either, but it's only because the main characters are mostly Gryffindors and Slytherins. I do think it's kind of cool that had the "trio" not been sorted into Gryffindor due to their bravery, they probably would've each been sorted into different houses (Harry to Slytherin due to Voldything's soul and resourcefulness, Ron to Hufflepuff because he's just very loyal, and Hermoine to Ravenclaw because she's super smart and logical).

Because the books are called "Harry Potter and ...."

Re: Harry Potter

I really like the Harry Potter series too. I do find some of the books boring, namely the first and sixth. Not that I have anything against it, but I have noticed that the only holiday celebrated is Christmas and it shows up in every movie (I think). My favorite characters are definately Fred and George. Their pranks are always funny (especially near the end of book five with Umbridge as headmaster).

The last movie is coming out tomorrow at midnight, does anyone else plan on watching it?

Re: Harry Potter

My first experience with Harry Potter was with my grandmother. She volunteered at the local Library and brought it home to me and said that everyone was talking about it. She started reading it to me. (I was That was how it began. She only got threw the third chapter before I had to go home but I made my dad go buy the book with me so that we could start reading it together. My dad read them to me while I was younger and then as I got older we would read them separately and discuss. My favorite book was by far Half Blood Prince. I balled my eyes out. My least favorite was the fourth. I have watched all the movies but I pick them apart.
