I’m sorry, I had to say something. I am really upset that I haven’t caught the Potter fever. Even though I got a head start on book 7, I still haven’t gotten through it. It’s not grabbing me. I miss them being in Hogwarts and dealing with things from there, not this mess of duels and people from the ministry. I know how it ends, and it just wraps up too neatly. I no longer feel interested in the characters. Correction, I just want more scenes that give character development, not scenes that advance an increasingly complicated plot. The plot has become pure good v. evil, with no real complications or thought-provoking dilemnas. And STILL Harry is devoid of any real personality. He just sits there for a while and every once in a while has an outburst of irrational anger.
It’s like the first five books were cool indie films, and the last two became mindless summer blockbusters.
And some spoiler-y stuff….
How can you end the most anticipated book probably of all time with “All was well”? That is so dumb.
