zortegus, what is it exactly that you hate about the book? did you think that JKR choose to go certain paths with characters that you don't think she should've chosen? did you find it preposterous? was it just plain poorly written?
(it actually might be my fave book in the series tho)
Hm, fantasy is largely built on visuals. Are you sure it's not just because you read it with the knowledge it would also be a movie? After all, in the Sorcerer's Stone (written before any success) we have a massive troll fight, three-headed dog, giant chess game, Voldemort face reveal, and even Hogwarts itself, for Pete's sake.
^^^^ Also omg! This book is so important! Firstly because of all the stuff we learn about dumbledores past which develops the story of grindelwald to make commentary on racism and eugenics Secondly because of Harry's struggle with accepting the deaths of his parents and other people close to him, and the contrast between his and Tom riddles coping with mortality. I mean omg the story of the three brothers is so simply beautiful and symbolic and great and important to the story! And the limbo scene at kings cross is so beautiful and basically covers the entire point of the whole series in just a few pages The whole book is vivid, yes, but that doesn't mean it was created to be a movie..I'm really missing your point here. Anyway this is a great book. it ties the series up really well.
I think book 7 was a mixed bag, and I definitely don't think it was the best in the series. For starters the whole 'Harry is the master of the elder wand because *insert complex 10 degree separation in connection between wands and masters*' was pretty iffy.
Eh, I think that made sense if you think about it. Since the wand is all about winning duels and conquering other people and such, it would make more sense for it to answer to those who disarm the previous owner ( and not necessarily those who kill him). Cause the disarming part is like conquering the other person in taking away his power to defend himself.
But yeah not the best book in the series but important because so much stuff happens Personal favorite of the books is half blood prince, followed by prisoner of azkaban
Also fun fact last night I was half asleep and I started thinking about Alcatraz island in San Francisco but my mind kept thinking it was called azkaban wow

hp is like a fairy tale, kids book, war story and melodramatic mess all put together and while i started reading it bc i was young and liked magic, i really ended up loving how dark it got and taking the tale of magic hitler and two wars and so many causalities and being like, oh hey everything turned out perfect eventually, the end, is really really dumb.
