It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well

Harry Potter Character Analysis: Sorting Snape

By Bec C.


“I sometimes think we sort too soon”. With these words from Dumbledore in the books, and a carefully placed Gryffindor scarf in the movies (if you noticed it you know what I’m talking about), Snape’s whole identity, because in a Hogwarts universe our houses in part define who we are, was placed into question. Suddenly debates abounded. Was Snape truly a Slytherin? Or, like both the books and the movies implied, was Snape secretly a Gryffindor after all? After all, Snape has shown great bravery, and as Slytherins are the bad guys and Gryffindors are the goodies, the brave ones, then surely Snape is a Gryffindor? Right? Before we can get onto the topic of Snape’s true house, I want to examine these two houses, and the concept that while one is brave and good, the other is dark and evil.

Book review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows #2

Review by Bec C.

The last book in the series was a bittersweet experience for me, and I’m not even referring to the many characters who lost their lives in its pages. Rather this was the book I read, knowing that it was the last book ever, that for better or worse this was it for Harry Potter, this is where it would all end. I was determined to savour the experience and yet, on opening the book could not help but to continue reading page after page and chapter after chapter well into the night. Rowling once again displayed a talent for drawing the reader in, for making them want to know so much how the story ends that they have to keep reading.

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows #1

Review by Ciel


The much awaited final installment reached my hands, and oh, how I devoured it in three days! Overall, this is a good book, not as great as I would’ve wanted; there are some things that didn’t sit quite right with me. There are fireworks, but they didn’t crack loud or bright enough. We’ve seen Harry trudging along the winding road of Death, something he has accepted despite his young age.

Harry Potter and the Test of time

 

The Harry Potter series are, undoubtedly, very popular books for this generation. It has fascinated, and still does, millions of fans worldwide. Out of these millions, more than half were (and are) only kids when they started reading, hence growing with Harry, creating an eternal bond of friendship and understanding. Additionally, some of these millions of readers are parents reading to their small children, seeding in them the love of reading. Harry Potter has marked its place in the top favorite reading choices of children, teenagers, and adults all over the world. Its increasing popularity has made the book very successful. However, does being popular and successful mean that it’s a “Classic” and will stand the test of time?
