Ok this is funny…but because this is close to my heart…To the world n society (read muggles)its a series… well written n fictional…yes.. all that is true…and now as a 5 yr working experienced lady i surely believe tat…all of it is fiction n blah blah…yet when the last n latest Harry Potter book was announced…it created a flutter in my heart…but then mind you..i decided to skip it!…majorly n firstly becoz i m too old for it now…amd secondly it isnt even written by JK!
So ya the book came out n i saw it flashing across my FB, Twitter, Insta timelines with almost everyone i know in this world buying it n reading it..but mind you…my ego was big n real…i decided to skip it still!But i did ask some of my frnds hw it was…they were blatantly honest n said its ok ok but not as gud as the previous ones etc etc…
But then recently i caught myself thinking of my childhood…n i realized how big a role this series had in it. I realized that i wasnt being fair to both – ‘my inner anxious crazy pottermaniac child’ and also to the ‘writers of this book whose intention wud hav been to keep Harry Potter alive in these days n times’! I realized it wud ungrateful of me if i let this one go….becoz the Truth is that this series was literally my family….i stood n fought for it vit my parents whenever they caught me reading it at nite….i may hav spent a zillion sleepless nites completing the books…the class tests i hav risked failing by doing nothing but reading the buk the previous day…the million creative dreams this series has given me all through my school days…even trying hard getting the pronunciations right for all the spells…also hoping to death polyjuice potion was for real….!
So to cut the story short…i bought the last book n read it within 3 hrs (much like my record vit the previous ones) i wont tell you how it was…coz harry potter n his world is not sumthing we can judge or criticise or score …its like i said ‘a closer topic to our hearts’…so if u r a potterfan …feel free n read the last part…Coz most importantly i think we owe it to our childhood!
3 hrs! That’s brilliant.. I haven’t read any of the series.. but I can relate the excitement, happened with me for LOTRs .. Happy reading 🙂
I tried to read LOTR multiple times but i wud sleep off in the middle every tym😂😂..sumhow i cudnt bring myself to read it completely!
