I’m Back from Harry Potter Land…well, sort of

26 Jul

I’m finished.  I started reading the book Sunday night (as you know) and I’m finished.  Don’t worry, I didn’t neglect the children and Andrew too much during these last 4 days.  I really only hurt myself – staying up until almost dawn trying to read as much as I could.

It was incredible.  (Don’t worry – I’m not going to give anything away.)  I got goosebumps.  I cried.  I laughed.  I did exactly what I’ve done for every book.  It just amazes me how it captivates me.  I’m still all emotional today thinking about how it’s all over.  No more books to read.  No new adventures.  Now, I only have to wait on the movies and reread the books.

Speaking of movies, Andrew is taking me to see the newest movie tonight and I am so excited but it’s going to be strange to watch the movie knowing what I know now.  I will get over it though.  Anything to make the story last longer.

(By the way, Andrew never did watch movies 2 through 4 but he says he doesn’t want me to miss out on seeing this new movie in the theater.  Isn’t he a trooper?)

    I finished it, too!!!I won't spoil either… but I also cried… for an entire chapter. I have to reread the last few chapters, I think, because it was late and I don't really understand what happened. This is written for 11-year olds, so why am I so confused?

    I hear you! I have this yearning to grab the book and go through it again – just to make sure I registered it all and comprehend it. We just saw the "Order" movie tonight and I actually didn't love it. I think the books have spoiled me – I want to see it played out just like Rowling wrote it. Andrew slept through like an hour of it and I wasn't even mad at him. He said he just couldn't follow it. Honestly, I couldn't either! I kept thinking – it didn't happen like that in the book! I need to let it go!
