I was lukewarm about Harry Potter BEFORE it was cool to be lukewarm about Harry Potter!
Author: J.K. Rowling
I’m just going to say it: Harry Potter is a pathetic chosen one! I like that Harry is not Mr. Perfect, but Harry honestly reminds me of the biggest jerks I knew in high school.
Question: What exactly does Harry accomplish in this book? Harry spends the whole book talking other people into doing all the work for him. He even takes a timeout from a war to go poke through Snape’s memories for some reason. It’s not like he needed one of Snape’s memories to solve a problem or anything.
Speaking of the memory thing. . . Why?
What did you think you would find in there? The man was dead by that point, and it’s not like anyone told you he was a double agent. Why did you care about his memories? The one other time you did this you found out your dad was a jerk! Why poke around in his memories?
Oh, it’s so that we the reader can get the exposition and make all the Snape fans feel better.
This book was fine, I guess. Lots of things were tacked on at the ending, but that’s normal for long series. Everyone marries someone from high school? Oh, and apparently you can just NOT get a Hogwarts diploma and be fine. . . Any Potterheads still want to say that Hogwarts is a great school?
Can we talk about Harry sending his kids to the same school where he almost died every year? You know better than anyone what a deathtrap that place is, and you send your kids there? You need to deal with your unhealthy attachment issues Harry Potter.
