this is not a Harry Potter review. if you’re looking for spoiler then yeah, read on.
I’m writing this to cure my withdrawal syndromes. you know when you’re on the last page of a compelling book and you feel empty all of a sudden and the emptiness stays there for a week or so.
three months of wandering Hogwarts castle under the Invisibility Cloak, three months of Fred and George’s jokes, three months of so many different Defence Against the Dark Arts professors. and it all ended with Harry on the platform with his children named after his parents and headmasters. I sorta laughed in the end I’m sorry. nonetheless it’s still difficult to put down the book after that until you have to get up for tissues to blow your nose.
though I didn’t regret only reading the book after seven years the last book was published (because at least I didn’t die without reading them), somehow at times it still feels like reading the book for the second time. sometimes when I’m scrolling past Instagram or Tumblr or 9Gag, there’re some plots revealed somewhere. so I wasn’t totally shocked or sad at certain parts when I’m supposed to feel so.
like I already knew Sirius died halfway reading the fifth book because of Tumblr. oh then I read 9Gag’s LOTR vs. HP infographic and knew Snape killed Dumbledore. and found out Fred died while attempting a Buzzfeed quiz. ok…
well, at least I didn’t know Dobby, Hedwig, Cedric, Tonks, Lupin and Snape died. so it’s still quite emotional for me.
anyway, my favourite chapter is The Prince’s Tale. before I read it I already knew it’s Snape’s story. I think everyone who reads HP will guess it. I knew he loved Lily but I don’t know what’s the story behind yet. And in one chapter, my face was soaked in tears (and snivel). and oh, King’s Cross must be the warmest chapter of all. :’)
I guess that’s all. I couldn’t stop looking for Harry-Potter-related stuffs on the net. Buzzfeed, Tumblr, jokes, puns. anyway, will prolly write about Looking for Alaska next. another book that made me teared real hard.
