DID YOU GO TO THE MIDNIGHT SHOWING OF HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS?
I know there are many HP fanatics went to the Midnight or after showing! I didn't, but wanted to go. I'm not going until the 6:00 pm showing.
TELL ME! TELL ME! TELL ME! IF you LOVED it .... IF you HATED it! or Somewhere in between.
As we all know this is ONLY the FIRST part. So we do have the second half to look forward to next summer. ANOTHER SIX MONTHS! That's all Warner Bros. and JK Rowling ever do ... MAKE US WAIT!
I read this book in two days.... I was bleary-eyed when I finished. After I found out what happened, I immediately we back to re-read it at a slower pace.
As we see Harry bumbling his way through the English countryside to find each and every horcrux, JK Rowling weaves in this incredible sub-plot which I really enjoyed: the Hallows. What a fantastic idea introducing Beatle the Bard.
The invisibility cloak: it was introduced to us in Sorcerer's Stone. A gift from Harry's father. The first Hallow.
Tom Riddle's ring: another family heirloom, which happens to be another Hallow.
The Death Stick: our final Hallow. Giving the wand its own history .... another thread in this tapestry Rowling wove for us.
This involved story within a story gives this edition that extra something we all expected from the climax of Harry Potter.
Designer tip of the week will be posted tomorrow. Harry Potter takes precedence this week.
TO ALL MY HP FRIENDS .... WE STILL HAVE ONE MORE TREAT COMING. LET'S RELISH IT WHILE WE CAN ...
