But anyway, i hate Harry Potter, and fortunately my brother is a lttle to young to read it, so the amount of it in the house is a minimum.
the thing with the scar is that there is a prophecy about harry but unfortunatly the words also apply to neville longbottom, until he gets attacked by voldemort. the scar is his mark, and therefore harry becomes his equal. harry is the only person able to defeat voldemort. the thing in the forbidden forest is hagrids giant half brother, hes called grawpy. the package that sirius gives harry just inside the door of grimmauld place is a mirror that sirius and james(harrys father) used to use in separate detentions, it is a link that harry can use to speak to sirius. unfortunatly harry does not find this out until sirius is dead, killed by lestrange in the department of mysteries. obv u cannot talk to dead people.
another theory, is the reason neville longbottom is so forgetful, that he had an overdone memory charm like bertha jorkins in book4, did he have a memory charm to help him 4get his parents being insane??
i really wanna no if ne1 has the answer to this.
the one by charley -it's a massive spoiler pretty much explaining the entire plot
honestly! after we just said NO SPOILERS! if you want to write it in do it in my one which is erm...something
hang on *scrambles around wildly* Oh there we go:
'as requested- A thread to discuss the outcome of the new HP' is the name...
well I hope you read my big letters before you ruined it for yoursleves...alas
Yes, i'm not a fan of Harry Potter myself, but apparently (well not apparently, you can i've looked) download it using a program called Ares. You can get Ares from www.download.com, and once you've downloaded it, start the program and click the tab at the top labelled 'search'. Then in the box on the left hand side of the screen select the circle labelled 'documents' and then type 'Harry Potter' into the search field. Then click 'search now', when i tried this all of the Harry Potter e-books came up including the new one. Some might download some might not, but you should find one to download eventually. The best e-books are in Adobe Acrobat format i personally think as opposed to word documents. Again, you will need to download Adobe to read it though if you haven't already got it. The files are only around 2mb so only take 5-10 minutes to download.
I mean seriously...
You say the books have the same plot and perhaps a few do follow similar patterns -eg all but 3 end up with a one on one harry v voldermort type fight but they are still well written and humourous which is perhaps why people of all ages enjoy them. I think the fact that they are so popular book shops open at midnight on their release date shows that they have something special...but each to his own etc etc- I have never been able to understanbd the allure of watching soaps (if there was ever such a thing as predictable and repetative they are it!)- but thats a whole different thing so I'll just be quite now...*mumbles into eventual silence*
Oh and which childrens books do you find so appealing?
And I might just reccoment Diana Winn Jones -I had her books read to me when I was a wee wee lassy, and I still enjoy them now- actually that is possibly because they are not childrens books...well some are some arn't *egan bumbles on* anyway-if you fancy reading some of her stuff try 'Dark Lord Of Derkholm' or 'Howls moving castle* or something...
P.S please excuse my spelling...and *glances above* the length of this!
Its just so sad that once again, the general public has lowered themselves to this.
And I notice people keep saying that there are far better books out there etc etc- but no one is backing this up with some names and authors! If you know of a good- or in your opinion 'better' series/book then why not share it so we can maybe try em out!
and i think it was horrid of charley (the spoiler) to say who died and basically give away the entire plot- for god's sake you have to get at least 700 pages into the book to find out that kind of stuff + one of my friends has now said he won't read the book because it has no mystery. how gutted would you be to get to the end of all the red herrings etc. to know what happened.
Finished reading the book last night! I only started yesterday morning though....
Very good book, but i think the conclusion could be a bit better - why does Rowling want us to wait for the 6th book to find out what they got in their OWL's!
What do people predict will happen next? If you don't want to post on here incase there are people reading it who havn;t finished or don't want to guess I did set up a while back- a thread about the outcome but it was little used...if you'd like to post on it then it is called *checks*
'as requested- A thread to discuss the outcome of the new HP'
and lou p lou tell your friend to persist with reading it...even if he knows the basic plot I think it would still be worth while...
I wonder how long it will be until the next one it ready? it's not going to be as long...which is a shame really as I enjoyed the day and a bit worth of reading...ah well- just think two more to go and it's all over!
blah...anyway -have a good weekend everyone
i was amazed at work today (i work in a doctors surgery) because i had a really long conversation with one of the doctors about ti, + he is the last person i could imagine who would be into it- but he's only halfway through so i was nice + didn't spoil the ending (i think i would have been throttled if i had, because i was the only one there who'd finished it)
and it is suprising how many read it...I wonder if your doctor fellow has the 'adult' cover...it always makes me laugh thinking of the businessmen on trains hiding it behind their broadsheets...
