Today I am bringing you the first lines of a very special book…”Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, which is the seventh and last book of this very, very popular series by J.K. Rowling. Let me tell you, if I thought the tone of the series had changed with the 6th book, it was nothing compared to this one! Ms. Rowling’s writing is out of this world and I have so enjoyed the maturing of the characters. I am not sure if I could ever pick a favorite from this series, but I think this one would be very close to the top of the list!
"The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane. For a second they stood quite still, wands directed at each other’s chests; then, recognizing each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and started walking briskly in the same direction."
Doesn’t these words make you wonder…who are the men? Are they friend or foe? Are they good or bad? Don’t worry because it doesn’t take long for you to figure them out or does it? I loved the twists and turns of this book and I might have to go back and read it again for good measure! You know it is a good book when you can read about 800 pages in just two or three days!
Now I want to watch the movies again because it makes so much more sense now!
