Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

When Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out in 2007, I read it for 8 hours a day for 4-5 days.  I was just so into it that I couldn’t tear myself away.  What I love about these books is that they are so easy for me to wrap my brain around it despite the disabilities that I have to reading.  The Harry Potter books are truly what gave me a passion for reading so when I see a Harry Potter movie after I’ve read the book I get very emotional about it.

I was watching the commercial for this in the living room and you would’ve thought that I just lost someone by the way I was crying lol.  If you haven’t read this book then I don’t want to spoil it for you but someone dies in this movie and someone else loses an ear.  Yes, I was crying over an ear too lol.

I’m afraid to go see this movie in the theater because I know I’m going to be making a scene.  When we went to see Lord of the Rings Return of the King, you could’ve heard 1) a pin drop and 2) me crying.  I am such a big baby, I don’t know why.  I get so wrapped up in the characters that it makes me emotional.

Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly is in theaters on November 19th.  I might have to bring my sunglasses and a box of tissues when we go see this because I have a feeling I’m going to be crying so I’ll need the sunglasses to hide my red eyes as we’re leaving lol.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book)

I have finally finished the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows which is Rowling’s 7th and final book.  It is in my opinion most unfortunate that this will be her last Harry Potter book because I just love the story and it’s not too difficult to read.  Harry Potter is a children’s book but it has a strange adult following.  I think out of the 8.1 million books sold on Saturday the day it was sold about 90% of that are people ages 20 to 70.  It’s a story for all ages not just the kiddies.

I will not be giving you a spoiler warning because I am not spoiling anything for anybody.  I keep my promise J.K.  I loved this book.  I laughed, I cried, I was concerned for the 3 main characters on their quest.  I cried some more here and there.  Let’s just say, if you read this book invest your money in a box of tissues.  Or a roll of paper towels.  Or just get a beach towel, you never know.  Your sleeves are going to need to be put in the dryer if you have to resort to that.  Trust me.  I’m a guy and I cried like a baby.  And not all of that were sad tears either.  Ok, half and half.  I’m not kidding.  BUY IT!

Let me just end by pleading to J.K. Rowling…. “Please, don’t stop writing.  If it can’t be Harry Potter then something else, but don’t stop writing.”
