4.75 Golden Stars

I loved the second half of this book wholeheartedly! it was thrilling & wonderful how it was going on! how they were enlightened by the information. how they solved the mystery! how they reacted, planned & how it ended. it was EPIC!
the first half was mysterious too. I liked that.
but the newspaper articles about the backstory was boring. & the parts they were camping but no clues/plans what they were going to do next, without anything interesting happens was a bit slow.


This is the most emotional book in HP series; from the beginning. maybe the most crying book of my whole life:
I cried at first, 25%, in the middle, later in the middle, in 75% & many times toward the end:
(view spoiler) sobbing & curling in the corner. (I am even crying now as I'm just typing these.)

always crying; at all the readings.

don't worry, it has fun times too. ;)


“Hogwarts was the first and best home he had known.”


the ending was brilliant! mysteries solved! (& I'm mad about changing it in the movie.)
epic battle!


(view spoiler)

Romione:

'...We should tell them [house elves] to get out!'
There was a clatter as (view spoiler) cascaded out of Hermione’s arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him


& a few moments later...
Harry's reaction:

"Is this the moment?" Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. "OI! There's a war going on here!"

this was priceless! XD

and the Flaw in the Plan....
One of my favourite chapters in the whole HP! I love the last battle. I love the way Harry explained it. the clues even I, as a reader, might have missed. (at least in the first read I did. that's the whole point of a story being a legend, you don't see the clues wrapping up in the story until it is explained & next time you re-read it, you'll see them.) so exciting! so epic! so brilliant! (& they CHANGED these in the movies!)

I was at the edge of my seat for the last 30%. all of it. so thrilling!

at my first read, I was afraid about how the story would be ended (because Harry is my favourite character) but you know...

“There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.
"Is this the moment?" Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. "OI! There's a war going on here!"
Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other.
"I know, mate," said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a Bludger, "so it's now or never, isn't it?"
"Never mind that, what about the Horcrux?" Harry shouted. "D'you think you could just --- just hold it in, until we've got the diadem?"
"Yeah --- right --- sorry ---" said Ron, and he and Hermione set about gathering up fangs, both pink in the face.”

“For instance, this new idea that You-Know-Who can kill with a single glance from his eyes. That’s a basilisk, listeners. One simple test: Check whether the thing that’s glaring at you has got legs.
