Harry Potter

I read the book awhile back. First online: I downloaded it off the numerous dubious sources for such revered content, and when I’d already finished that, mom got me a hardcopy.

I didn’t (and don’t) feel the same kind of excitement with this book than with others. Have no clue why though: not saying this book is bad, just that there’s not so much magic as last time. The reason probably though is that I was half sick when I read it.

Something to say to lots of people who are being introduced to “reading” through Potter. It’s definitely a great series, more wonderful because people of all ages like it well, but it’s not the be-all end-all of writing that we call “fantasy”. Niether is ‘Lord of the Rings’, in case you were thinking that: try authors like Greg Keyes, Eddings, George R.R. Martin, Anne Rice, and well… lots of others. It’ll be great if Harry helps you step up to better reading. 🙂

  1. You’re probably right when you say, the last book is finished. But just not exactly finished. It seems Rowling wrote the last chapter of the seventh book when she finished the first book. So in that sense maybe its over. But otherwise, I don’t see any chances of the next one coming any earlier than a year and a half from now. I’m sure that would be the last thing on the publisher’s mind!

  2. I too felt the same about this book. But I feel it’s probably due to me being bothered about my personal Dementors. Anyway, nice reading, and dread at the thought of another two years of guessing before the next one comes out!
    And thanks to the internet, I got to read a book which wouldn’t have reached stupid Raipur until the 18th of July.
