Potter mania

Yesteday,I let myself readily be effected by my favourite disease...and u have guessed it right already from the title of my post....
I would define it as a state of trance developed once the brain starts releasing chemicals to trigger an urgent need to read a Harry Potter book or watch the newest release...
I slept at 5 in the morning after I finished reading the book in one go...
Wouldn't have taken that long with my normal RC speed but I was relishing the budding romance in Hogwarts(including the snogging) with extra attention....gulping down every bit I could....(have been waiting for this to happen since Book I, u know)
Occasionally rereading sentences...underlining them...( adding personal notes- a dirty but useful habit)
Been waiting since July 17th to read the book,lying by my bedside...which I couldn't pick up owing to my prior commitments.
Most of u might have read it already...
I couldn't justify the death of one of the most adorable characters after Sirius(and honestly thought of sending a mail about it to J.K .Rowling to bring him back to life in the next title...) and with the concept of Horcruxes introduced..it seems we can expect 4 more books now...
Much to the annoyance of a couple of friends who are yet uneffected by the Potter Syndrome...
I kept reading the book the whole day,not recieving phone calls or answering merely in monosyllables if I did so...
Someone said.."GROW UP ,LARA"

Well...

Sirius Black died in Book-5..it's time u spent a weekend catching up with what's happening at Hogwarts..btw which was the last book u read?

Aparna Kar said...

"It" went fine..gotta couple of more exams lined up next

I am sure that Severus is the good guy here. He was under an unbreakable vow from Dumbledore and he forced Severus to kill him.
We'll know it all in the next books.

Aparna Kar said...

I think so too
But..
Albus trusted him so much!
He didn't deserve to be killed by Snape ...weak,unarmed..it's just not fair!!!

Heh, Dumbledore was the greatest wizard in the whole world, and that was not just owing to his prowess in magic. He was a great human being above anything else. He told Severus to kill him because that was the only way to save Harry.
The whole thing was staged to fool the death eaters. Severus is the good guy and he actually saved Harry by not letting others kill him. Everything will be crystal clear in the next book.
I am waiting for that with bated breath :)

P.S - I deleted the post since there was a typo :P

@BG
I think U r right..
Harry is "The Chosen One" after all...
Dumbledore sacrificed his life to save Harry..who is destined to confront Voldemort one day..

Not only cause of that dumb prophecy by Professor Twelany...but because evreyone believes it to be so..

Harry is the only ray of hope in these dark times..
Poor kid..he's not even 17 n has to be a hero..It's tough..!!
