A New Magical World

Ever since the end of July, I started picking up with the Harry Potter series. For some odd reason, I preferred taking a break from the non-fictional world for a while, and of course, a bit of magic won't harm. The Prisoner Of Azkaban was the very first book I've read from the series, besides The Chamber Of Secrets which I've read nearly 2 years ago in Arabic. Now that I came to think of it, the Arabic translation sucked, and it is by no means can be compared with the original version, that is in English. 5 months ago, I got The Goblet Of Fire as a gift and was fantasized by the world Rowling created.

I can say that The Prisoner Of Azkaban is my third favourite due to the fact that it's where Sirius's character had been introduced to the story first. The twists of the story were unpredictable. Who knew that a serial killer who had just broke out of Azkaban (Wizard's prison) would turn out to be Harry's Godfather? I know I didn't.

Add to that, Harry's finally getting to know about his father's story with his school pals; Sirius, Lupin, Wortmail, who happened to be Ron's rat for years! And discovering that he had had a relation to his
father, after all, as Sirius was the friend who both his parents had given the job to look over Harry whom of course Harry hadn't knew about for more than 12 years of his life.

Things then become utterly exciting in The Goblet Of Fire, where Harry with the help of Hermione had saved Sirius from nearly being kissed by the dementors (A soul-sucking kiss). The book was packed up with events, which I loved; the triwizard tournament, dementors attack..but at the end Cedric Diggory's death was as usual, unpredictable. He who got killed by Voldemort once he'd targeted Harry at the last task of the tournament.

I think my favorite part of the series, at the beginning when I first started reading it, was the PoA. After that it became "The Order of the Pheonix"...now that book was something and I can't remember how many times I've read it so far. Imagine though, it was spoiled for me by one of my friends who told me who dies -___- nice right? pfft.

I miss this series. I'm going to start reading it again.

Nice blog Kitten! =D

Well, I can't lie by saying there weren't any spoilers here & there. Sirius's death was the only thing that wasn't spoiled for me, which is why I'm thankful. I wouldn't have expected him to die of all people.

Thanks, Gchan!
