The world is split down the middle into two groups of people; Those who "get" Harry Potter and those who don't. If you fall into the latter category then here's me wishing you a great weekend (hey, i'm not here to convert the non-believers)! For the rest of you, read on!
I won't go as far as proclaiming, like a lot of people seem to be doing, that Harry Potter and his choms have changed my life. I will however admit that life's been a lot more interesting with him about.
It was The Year of Our Lord, 2000 when i first got introduced to Harry and gang, there i was on a the most divine, white sand resort location, drinking out of a coconut and all my attention was on finishing the first book***, that's saying a lot. It had originally been purchased for my youngest sibling and i'd initially dimissed it as child's play, nevertheless, 10 pages in i was hooked! There was no looking back!
I found myself wondering which house the Sorting Hat would put me in (Gryffindor like duh), how much fun it would be to hang out in Diagon Alley, how cool it would be to play quidditch or generally fly around on a broomstick. Yes at the age of 19, i was wondering whether my Hogwarts acceptance letter had got lost in the mail, hahaha.
In very atypical behaviour, i am avoiding any reviews, any trailers, any forums...i want to found out what shit goes down in that book all by myself! If it's going to be anything like the last 6 books we're in for a lot of twists and turns people!
Have a great weekend!
*** Okay, not ALL my attention was on the book, i still managed to sneak a few peeks at the hotties playing beach volley...yum!
