Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

that stinks. i can't get to London anytime (considering i live in the states).

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I know sad I am still going to have a funky night though big_smile I will meet up with a friend, have something to eat before going to watch the latest Harry Potter film. After that we will collect our copies of the book.

Another reason why it will be a funky night is that it will be the first night that I have been away from my younglings since they were born (that is nearly 3.5 years) it will be strange as well.

That is a shame that you cannot make it as well but it is completely understandable.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

oh f**k. my friend just sent me a link that contains MAJOR SPOILERS. if anybody wants me to post the link (im half n half on believing this junk), just say so.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I love working in a store sometimes. I went into the backroom around 6:15 this morning. Lo and behold... a wheeler with eight white boxes on it with red lettering all saying "HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS" with red tape on them saying, "DO NOT OPEN UNTIL JULY 21, 2007". big_smile It was... chilling. I was almost scared to reach out and touch the box, but I did. A thin layer of cardboard between me and the books.... Of course we quickly locked them away in our safe room. But still. I got to touch the boxes they come in!!!!

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I ended up seeing the newest  Harry Potter movie today, and I noticed something strange. Voldamort looked very similar to Marilyn Manson:  http://www.oneposter.com/UserData/Poste … _22242.jpg

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

Ahh! All this Harry Potter buisness is driving me nuts! I can understand how someone can love something, I mean I actually have found people that do not love Star Wars (shocking I know) but to me this Harry Potter buisness is rotting to the mind. (I'm sorry if you do like it, I mean no offence, and I like you no less).

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I just found out the ending, and let me tell you, it's a doozy! So, if you don't wanna know, avert your eyes:







Voldemort is actually the ghost of Harry's father who's real name was Rosebud, Hermione is actually Harry's daughter who came back in time from the future to save him from the Dursleys, who are actually killer robots from the future, and Hedwig is actually Harry's mom, who accidently turned herself into an owl one night while she was on a drinking binge. In the end, it turns out Ron is actually the Chosen One from the prophecy, and uses the force to kill the real villian who was pulling all the strings: Neville Longbottom. They both perish in the final battle, and Hermione dies when she causes the Dursley robots to explode, and Harry, over come with grief, retires to the wilds of Peru where he raises minature goats with Hedwig and Voldemort/Rosebud. Pretty shocking, huh?

Simply wonderful, completely changed my attitude on the series.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

If that's truly the end, I don't think I'd waste my money on the book. Sounds a rather disappointing ending to me.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

that's not the ending, the ending is here.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I finished it a half hour ago. It was amazing. I know I freaked out and cried and hyperventilated and nearly threw up over one death. The very next chapter cheered me up considerably however. It is a dark book, look at SS, then compare it to this one and... wow.

I am glad that you enjoyed it.

It really is a dark book and as you said compared to the first book. It is going to be interesting to see how they adapt that into a film.

I am about to start re-reading it so that I ill hopefully catch anything that I missed.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I'll probably end up getting the book once the wave of hype, and probably price, lowers.

I found that the series has too many deux ex machines for me.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

yea, i'm gonna start re-reading soon. not that i missed anything, i just wana do it to get more of it absorbed into my head.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I just finished tonight, would have been yesterday but was stuck at work all day!!

I was so incredibly anxious throughout the whole book, I could barely eat.

Miba- I reacted the same way. I was bawling like a baby, I felt rather childish, probably because my brother was reacting to me like I was insane! I know, the next chapter was probably my favorite, even though it made me cry even more.... and the epilogue... I expect something more ... but it was still cute.... Harry's dialogue to his son on the second to last page had me in tears again.

anyway, I would speak more plain, but I don't want major spoillers floating around...

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

I'm on page 200-something of my second read through. This one really has a completely different feel to it then the others, I wont say anything because I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it was my favorite of all of them. Stayed up for twelve hours after I bought it to finish it in one sitting. That it's the last of them all is rather depressing, though being able to go back and reading them in order should be fun.

Re: Harry Potter and the DEATHLY HALLOWS

Manji- Yes, the next chapter is my favorite as well, I've been saying most of what's in that chapter for months, though not in specific as in the certain scenes, but as in the general idea.
I didn't cry over that Harry-son dialogue, but I did tear up some.

The last chapter was a bit anticlimatic, I had a lot of trouble keeping names straight.
