I grew up with Harry Potter, and returning to this series as an adult has been a special treat. Once you start you can’t put them down and JKR has really crafted a world you want to be in.
So Human and Wonderful
I love so much about this book, it’s hard to put it all into words. The illustrations in these enhanced editions are perfect in every way. Never mind that they move and make you feel like you have the magical world editions. The story itself is great. The books have so many more little details that couldn’t make it into the movies.
The scathing descriptions of Lockhart are great. Harry is so cheeky to Tom Riddle while simultaneously absolutely positive he was going to die. I loved the doubt and the half bluff when he talked about Dumbledore. Dumbledore‘s obsession with hot chocolate. It’s just so human and wonderful. If you can’t read this book and fall in love with it, you just don’t get Harry Potter and there is no helping you. Sorry.
I think the whole Harry Potter series is great! I wish to meet J.K. Rowling and ask her a LOT of questions!
