Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 91 Days
August 20, 2010, 03:38 AM
There are now only 91 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here's today's quote!
"Of course, Voldemort would have considered the ways of house-elves far beneath his notice, just like all the purebloods who treat them like animals. . . . It would never have occurred to him that they might have magic that he didn't."
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Kreacher's Tale"
just re-read DH and again loved how much depth JKR brings to these stories. The good the trio does to help Kreacher heal and re-enforcing the notion that kindness begets kindness. How Regulus learned and matured and sacrificed himself to help bring down Voldemort; at the same time trying to protect Kreacher.
I remember reading DH the first time and it felt like such a dark, winding downward, path for the first half of the book. Which made the rest even more powerfully uplifting.
Just three more months to go! It’ll pass by before we know it! I mean the six months passed by way too quick! Harry Potter……The Worldwide Phenomenon, will soon come to an end………
That just brings tears to my eyes, why can’t Jo Rowling write another book about Harry Potter………But this time about their kids and their lives……
But it would probably be a little simple, but us Harry Potter fans would just die to read about them!
I wish the house elves were used in the movies more often. Along with Peeves. Has Peeves been in any of the movies? Maybe Tim Burton will claymate or whatever it is he does, a version of the Harry Potter movies. It would be awesome to see his visual interpretation of the characters.
Phoenix1946, the movie yet to come out. Don’t pass your jugdements just yet and don’t hate of those of us who will give the films a chance before declaring them unworthy. Have the movies been different than the books, yes! But the over all tone and theology in the books has been intact something JKR would cherish more than the act of how Hegwig died. If she approves the changes made then I do too, for without her we would not have this amazing series of books in the first place. The only changes that I have approved of is not showing Dumbuldore’s funeral. But I am hoping they will show this at the beginning of movie 7 Part 1.
All saying give the movie chance and if you don’t then don’t on the rest of us hardcore fans for it.
