At last, the four tough days of our Preliminary Exams ended. Now, it’s time for me to leave academic books (for a while) and grab my brother’s copy of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
I expected too much, I believe. Well, as everyone knows (even those who haven’t read the book yet) Dumbledore died! I thought the book would relieve my stress, but instead, more and more new characters were introduced. Rowling did a good job in tying up all those characters starting from Year 1 to Year 4. As usual, I hated Snape and Malfoy… and they even teamed-up in this volume (now, I wish I could use some Imperius Curse). Well, for the first few pages, my mind vividly captured the image of British Prime Minister Tony Blair as the Muggle Minister (funny eh?!).
Generally, my interest was not as high compared to the time when I was reading HP 1 to 4. Anyway, I always loved Harry Potter (the story that is) which I started reading when copies hit the book store. I was in first year high school then (if my biology-terms-immensed brain serves me right).
I can’t wait to see the next HP book, and the upcoming film, of course!
Congratulations for getting good remarks on your O.W.L. (Ordinary Wizarding Level Exams) Potter!
