From the very first lines of the very first book, which reads:
"Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud ot say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they just didn't hold with such nonsense,"
The later books grow in tension, which I love, each one getting better and better. When I first saw how thick book number 4 and 5 were, I was ecstatic. Yeah! More to read, more information about Harry's world. Seriously, if JK Rowling planning taking Harry through his post-school life, I would be all for it. I would love chasing dark villians with him for a living, learning to detect their every move and coming up with new magic to defeat them. How fun would that be, seriously? It could go on forever.
For now, I can't wait to see what JK Rowling comes out with next. I am inclined to be a life-long fan of hers. So, to Miss Rowling, I say, "We love you! Keep up the good work!"
And to Harry Potter...
Until the next reading! I have book in hand and ready to be wrapped in the awe of another world.
