Have I ever mentioned that I am a Harry Potter fan?
Danielle is too and we both scheduled to take today off months ago for the opening of Order of the Phoenix. Then of course the greedy bastards that they are, Warner Bros, moved the movie opening up to Wednesday so they would have bigger opening weekend numbers, so today isn’t actually opening day anymore… but when you are a hospital pharmacist like Danielle, scooting days off around ain’t so easy. And it’s Friday! What better day to go see a movie with the girls, right?
Danielle (and Teri and Sharon) are the ones who got me hooked on the books too. And as I was telling a coworker yesterday, one of the things I think is most cool about the books is how the books grow with Harry. How the writing style evolves with him, how the plot and characters get more complex and how J.K. Rowling realized that those 13 year old boys who started reading Chamber of Secrets (or, err, 30-something mommies, whatever) will grow as she wrote each edition of the series.
I can’t wait for next week too. July 21, 2007 – The Deathly Hallows. Luckily Amazon is delivering them on release day so I don’t have to dress up like a freak and head down the Barnes and Noble at midnight.
So. Other Potterites… how do you think the series will end up?
And those who have seen the movie, what did you think?
