Chapter Four The Seven Potters (Daily Ch by Ch review of Deathly Hallows)

Chapter Four The Seven Potters

Spoiler Alert. If you haven’t read the chapter, then stop! Go back, read it, and then please return and share your thoughts and reviews.

Now that’s what I’m talking about! Curses and mini-Potters and motorbikes tricked up with dragon fire. Woo! Ah, let me slow down here, I have a chapter to review after all.

So, the first part of our chapter was our ramp up, if a little long, but our ramp up nevertheless. We had to sort through strategies, magic rules, blah, blah, blah. Oh. And we had to be reminded of who was who. In summary, The Order of the Phoenix + Harry’s friends +  Mundungus. And then, we’re off.

And we have our first death. Hedwig.

I remember all the rumors out there about the expected deaths in Deathly Hallow, just before it was published. Some wondered how bad would it be? Was anyone safe from the pen of J. K. Rowling? When I read the very first death, the death of Hedwig, I knew it wasn’t going to be a few deaths, it was going to be a massacre. If Rowling could kill of Hedwig, then anyone was up for grabs.

Moreso, we get a great, massive confrontation with Voldermort and Harry in the beginning of the book. Completely unorthodox as H. P. goes, Rowling usually saved a confrontation between the two until the end. Its obvious this story is shaping up to be nothing like the other six books. Nice.

Alright. Your turn. What did you think?

  1. I was completely shocked when Hedwig died. For some reason, it never occurred to me that the pets were at jeopardy. Come on, who kills off the pets? I guess Rowling does. Before this last book came out, my friends and must have wrote a gazillion pages of theories on what was going to happen and trying to predict the deaths and never once did we think Hedwig was at risk.

    This was one of my favorite scenes in the movie and I loved all the different Harry Potters. Could you imagine how funny it would have been if Hagrid had been one of the Potters?
