Well, the time is almost here and I can hardly stand the wait! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows aka Harry Potter Book 7 is almost out. By this time tomorrow it should be released. I might go to a Harry Potter book party after my work party tomorrow night! Well, I don’t know if I will, because I’m getting my copy delivered by Amazon.com. I am hoping it will arrive on Saturday. The only problem I can see is that I don’t have time to sit down and read the book right now. I don’t know if I can wait though. I really want to read book seven as fast as I can to find out what happens.
If you haven’t read the Harry Potter books you should. I admit that for some reason I found book five to be a bit slow, but it was still good. I might have been in a weird reading mood or something. I know, I know: the books are for children, right? Well, I think they are for everyone with an imagination! They are so much fun to read and although I like the movies well enough, they are far superior to the films. You forget you are reading and you just get sucked into the world of Harry and everyone and everything in his world.
I didn’t read the Harry Potter books until they became quite popular. When I finally heard of them I was like: eh. How good could a kid’s book really be? But I decided to give it a try and see if it was interesting. And I fell in love!
A lot of the books I read are very adult-ish which sometimes translates into a bit boring and academic. Harry Potter made my reading life feel alive again. It reminded me of when I was a kid and how I loved to read so much! I felt like a kid again only this time I was a kid at Hogwarts! But, I don’t only love the books on a kids level. I think there is a lot that someone can get out of the books as an adult. It is a classic fight between good and evil in these books. It is almost like you will find out if good or evil will prevail in the real world depending on how it goes in the books! Well, that might be stretching it. Maybe we will see just what J.K. Rowlings view of the world is in book seven. Will both Harry and Voldemort die in the battle between good and evil? Someone gets killed off I know that much. All of my questions will be answered soon enough.
The only bad thing about book seven is that it is the end. I sort of wish the story could go on and on for a few more books. I love the world of Harry Potter. I think I’ve always secretly wished that magic really existed. I love the idea of flying cars and invisible cloaks and schools of witchcraft and wizardry! I guess J.K. Rowling does deserve a break. It would be wonderful if she kept writing and produced a new series. But seriously, I do not know how she could top Harry Potter!
Anyway, if you haven’t read the books you really have to at least try book one! And for all of you out there who are already fans you know what I’m talking about! Have fun reading book seven and whatever you do, don’t give away the ending once you’ve read it!
