The second half of Sorceror's Stone! My thoughts, they are scattered and perhaps not very intelligent. BULLET POINTS.
Chapter 10: Halloween
- I am SORRY, but this is dirty:
"Too eager to fly again to wait for Wood, Harry mounted . . ." (p. 167)
- My husband pronounces Seamus "SEE-MUS." Let's all laugh at him good-naturedly.
- RON, STOP BEING MEAN TO HERMIONE.
Chapter 11: Quidditch
- Jordan's biased Quidditch commentary is my favorite.
- How . . . did Harry catch the Snitch in his mouth? This is confusing to me.
- Hagrid really shouldn't be allowed out of his hut when he has a secret.
Chapter 12: The Mirror of Erised
Chapter 13: Nicolas Flamel
- If for no other reason, I can never, never, never-ever like Malfoy because he was mean to Neville. NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO BE MEAN TO NEVILLE.
- I'm suspicious of Nicolas Flamel. Would a truly good wizard ever create something like a Sorceror's Stone, knowing how much evil it could cause in the wrong hands? At BEST, I find Nicolas Flamel to be incredibly irresponsible.
- If you went to all the trouble of getting into those high stands for a Quidditch match and then the game was over in 5 minutes, wouldn't that be kind of disappointing? From a sports fan's perspective?
Chapter 14: Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback
- Seriously, Hagrid . . . just don't even leave your hut if you have a secret.
Chapter 15: The Forbidden Forest
- Hagrid is in charge of their detention in the Forbidden Forest . . . but isn't it kind of his fault they have detention? Since they were trying to help him get rid of his dragon problem? I'm starting to understand why some people don't like Hagrid.
- I do, however, ship Ron and Fang.
- Do we think it's fairly easy to kill a unicorn? Voldemort/Quirrell isn't very strong . . . and unicorns are pretty sturdy. They at least must be good at running away, because horses.
|:: Moment of silence for unicorn, who died far too easily ::|
Chapter 16: Through the Trapdoor
- I enjoy this chapter because it's like The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade COMBINED.
- Also . . . awwwwww, Neville.
Chapter 17: The Man With Two Faces
"Harry breathed in the funny smell that seemed to come from Quirrell's turban." (p. 292)Um . . . gross. Don't breathe that in, Harry.
