Discussion in 'Books and Music' started by Matt, Jan 9, 2009.
Won't be a book section without a thread on Potter. Come one, come all. Discuss all things Potter!
"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU *****!"
Pretty good series
That is the greatest line ever. Mrs. Weasley is bad ass. That whole chapter is bad ass.
I know a lot of people were disappointed that Neville did not kill Bellatrix, but not me. Neville never would've lasted a second against Bellatrix. In fact, I am a bit disappointed that Neville did not die. It would've been epic if Neville finds Bellatrix during the final battle for their expected show down that fans have been hyping up since book 4, only to have Bellatrix kill him with one quick avada kedavra. It would've felt so realistically and darkly anti-climactic and would've worked perfectly, in my opinion.
great idea to finally get a seperate book/music section
I'm curious about the British to American translation.
Do they use American english names for things and British slang in the American Harry Potter books?
I think the first book was the only one to really be American-ized.
I've read them all, and from what I recall, the books felt very un-americanized...(british slang prevelant, etc)
I knew for certain JK wrote that in their just so it would be used in the movie
I think Rowling needs to write a book about the life of Grindewald and how he came to be with the Elder wand and how he meet Dumbledore, etc...up until his final words with Voldemort.
That's a good idea.
So, Matt, fancy giving this a poll so people can vote on their favourite Potter book?
Doesn't have to be public.
Done, this one is public
If you thought I was being serious before, you mustn't know me at all. :heart:
I knew all along. There's a reason I voted you for funniest Hypster. And Survivor interview damnit
From best to worst of the books:
1. Deathly Hallows
2. Prizoner of Azkaban
3. Order of the Phoenix
4. Half-Blood Prince
5. Goblet of Fire
6. Chamber of Secrets
7. Sorcerers Stone (still a good book, but the others are soo much better)
I have far too many awesome things to juggle at the moment
That's why I didn't take my application any further. I may not have the time, so thought it only fair to allow the position to go to someone who can definitely show up.
I don't like being a drop-out no-show bastard, so I'm not doing it. Sorry dude.
It's like you ripped that straight from my brain
1) Goblet of Fire
2) Deathly Hallows
3) Order of the Phoeni
4) Half-Blood Prince
5) Chamber of Secrets
6) Prisoner of Azkaban
7) Sorcerer's Stone
We agree on 3 and 7.
Half Blood Prince
Goblet of Fire
Prisoner of Azkaban
Chamber of Secrets
Order of the Phoenix
Also, I really hate the American cover art. I haven't seen them all but from what I've seen... Thumbs down!
I feel like parts of that would be too pro-gay for her to have the guts write. Her books are already burnt enough as it is!
Mrs. Weasley is the one character from Harry Potter I would kill multiple times if I could.
Not Voldemort, not Dobby - ****ing Molly Weasley.
My favorite HP Books:
1. Order of the Phoenix
2. Deathly Hallows
3. Prisoner of Azkaban
4. Goblet of Fire
5. Sorcerer's Stone
6. Chamber of Secrets
7. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them
8. Quiditich Throughout the Ages
9. Tales of the Beetle and the Bard
10. Half Blood Prince
She kicks ass and you know it.
Sirius should of bitten her throat out
Sorry, but one poorly written campy scene at the end of the Deathly Hallows doesn't change the fact that she was one of the most unlikeable characters throughout the first 6 books.
I agree with not wanting Neville to kill Bellatrix, but I did not want Neville to die. I think I was actually holding my breath during his whole confrontation with Voldemort, which is now one of my favorite parts of the whole book.
HBP. I read it once, but I found it very different from the other books. Lovely.
I've only read the first Harry Potter book, so that puts me leagues behind you guys. But I did enjoy it. The writing felt "dumbed down" to me at first, but it was only because it was the first book geared towards a much younger audience that I had read in a long time.
I imagine the books read "older" as the series continues, and I would like to continue reading the series in the future. As of last year I have now seen all of the movies.
