August 28, 2010, 01:10 AM
There are now only 83 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 are today's!
Finally Bill said, "All right. Who do you want to talk to first?"
Harry hesitated. He knew what hung on his decision. There was hardly any time left; now was the moment to decide: Horcruxes or Hallows?
"Griphook," Harry said. "I'll speak to Griphook first."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Wandmaker"
i completely agree with everyone here. hallows or horcruxes? and it kind of puts harry at a crossroads on whether after all this, could dumbledore still be right with the horcruxes? or should harry start his own journey with the hallows? and in the end he lands with the hallows and the defeated horcruxes which also leaves the question still; hallows or horcruxes?
Hermy007 is absolutely right. The decision to finsih Voldemort over chasing after the Hallows was a difficult one for Harry, but he “chose wisely”. Otherwise Voldie might not have been vanquished, and as Hermy 007 says, Harry’s decision really benefited the whole wizarding world. If he had chosen to go after the Hallows he would, perhaps, have benefited in the short term, but the wizarding world as a whole would not.
Hallows or Horcruxes? Both very important in the book, as is this scene. He makes a good decision w/ the Horcruxes. His priority needs to be to destroy them first. I still can’t wait until the movie. only 83 more days!
