Chapter 6 Ghoul in Pajamas (Daily Ch by Ch review of Deathly Hallows)

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.

First question. Shouldn’t Hermoine add the ill proper of ghoul treatment to S.P.E.W? Poor ghoul, all locked up, dressed in little boy’s pajamas and having to trudge around with the Weasleys.

I have always sided with the kids in YA/MG fantasy. When the question was, whether they should take on a dark Lord or stay at home with the parents, I always rooted for operation: destroy the dark Lord.  But this time…well, I felt for Mrs. Weasley. Especially since no one else was on her side – even her husband, Arthur. He is her baby, her offspring, her beloved, who is only twelve years out from being properly potty trained, about to saddle up with The Boy Who Lived to Defeat the Voldermort. Arguably, Ron is her favorite since he is her youngest boy (but the movie played it out that she gave Harry more preferential treatment). Anyway, my heart goes out to you Mrs. Weasley.

Alright. What do you think about chapter 6?

One thought on “Chapter 6 Ghoul in Pajamas (Daily Ch by Ch review of Deathly Hallows)

  1. First off, I hadn’t thought about the unfair treatment of the ghoul. But I guess Hermoine is keeping the bigger picture in mind. I felt so bad for Hermoine having to modify her parents’ memories so that they would forget about. her. I really appreciated the way that the movie highlighted that.

    This chapter also had some funny parts as Ron is doing all those little things to try to impress Hermoine – handing her the (albeit very crummy) handkerchief when she was upset.

    But I do feel for Mrs. Weasley in this chapter. She has so much to lose with all those kids out fighting in the war. Even Ginny isn’t safe at Hogwarts.
