. . . or share any concluding thoughts about the book as a whole. Let's hear 'em!
For those of you thinking about joining our book discussion, or those of you who are lagging behind, we're taking the next few weeks off. Our discussion of Goblet of Fire will begin on Monday, January 7th, and we hope you can join us!
I think the quick turn around in terms of Harry wanting to move in with Sirius is a signal of just how bad his homelife has been and how much he wants to have any connection to his parents and the magical community.
I love how Ron is sidelined in this book and Hermione gets to have the adventure. (One of the things I hated in book 2 is that, while appropriate given her name, for Hermione to be frozen she doesn't contribute to a huge portion of the book.) Here Hermione gets to be the one who helps Harry and I appreciate that.
I also enjoy how Buckbeak, who seems tangetial, becomes important to the whole plot.
He trusted Sirius because he was his parents' best friend and his godfather. Plus he's totally cool, I mean he turns into a dog, he's a fugitive from justice. These things are impressive to teenage boys.
Anyhoo, some don't like the time travel thing but I love how JKR does it. I love how Harry mistakes himself for his dad. There's layers of meaning there.
My only other thought at the moment is that I always laugh when I read that last page, where Harry is telling Uncle Vernon about Sirius.
Hip, hip, Hooray!
5 Marensr: What did you mean by "given her name"? Does Hermione mean something?
