Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 65 Days
September 16, 2010, 01:02 AM
There are now only 65 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 is today's quote!
They did not discuss Ron at all over the next few days. Harry was determined never to mention his name again, and Hermione seemed to know that it was no use forcing the issue, although sometimes at night when she thought he was sleeping, he would hear her crying.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Godric's Hollow"
these was 1 of the part in the hp series i din njoy…:(
i jus wished Ron to com back as soon as possible..
the trio was incomplete without Ron..
Oh poor Hermione, i felt nad for her but i like this part as it shows how much hermione loves Ron,, very heart wrenching
This is a poignant part in the series, and in this novel alone. It just shows how dark the times were, and how they were deeply affecting everyone, especially the trio.
It also showed how mature these young characters were becoming, and how their love had grown, especially for Ron and Hermoine, in the romantic sense. You really feel their pain. I strongly believe a relationship strengthens through obstacles, and Ron and Harry had reached new heights. Their arguement exemplified how they were brothers – not through blood, like Ron rudely reminded Harry, only once – but through heart.
I loved how Ron was lurking outside their tent for several days before they actually discovered him. He realized his mistake, and it was brave of him to return, however heated the argument and cowardly the decision in the beginning. They were so young, though, and often times emotion is the first to take over when experiencing that much frustration, anger, and fear.
I loved this part. It was a turning point in their lives. Can you imagine the fear and anxiety they had while camping out, just the three of them, for that long? Not even knowing the fate of their families and friends? Wow.
Poor Hermione. She loved Ron very much and i hate Ron here.
If only they had said his name! And not been so paranoid…He would have been back sooner…
Silvery Doe asks: ‘Did Ron come back because they finally said his name?’
It was when they said his name that Ron suddenly began to hear their voices out of the Deluminator, as if it were a radio (a wireless to you Brits), and then it began to emit the ball of light that enabled him to locate them. So yes, although as Manver points out Ron had already wanted to go back by that point, it was their use of his name that triggered the Deluminator’s deeper level of magical potential and made his return possible.
I wouldn’t be 17 again for anything!!!
The journey the tale takes in the first half of DH was terrible! I remember wanting to savor the last book so I was determined to read it slowly and take it all in. But, up to the point at which Ron returns, is one heart wrenching step after another. The way each character grows through the books is really grand in scope. They are all just 17 at this point and have been fighting for their lives for a long time – often just the three of them together or alone. This point in the tale was one of the saddest.
Awww soo sad …….poor Hermione
you guys are 2 days behind the actual countdown. Today there is 63 days till the movie not 65. you keep confusing me.
But at that point in the book i think JK Rowling mad the relationships pretty obivous. And poor heartbroken Hermione
That was really unfortunate…I was so angry with Ron,but I forgave him when he came back…well,at least he came back!
Awwwwwww i felt so sorry for hermione:’(
@silverydoe, i thought ron wanted to come back anyway but heard his voice throught the deluminator(Y)
Hermione knows what shes has to do and this shows her strength. She cant be with the one she loves but she can do what she needs to….A new side of Hermione that we don’t usually see…
