Deathly Hallows, Chapter Four

The night Deathly Hallows was released, I got my book at a midnight release party and came home to read. I was in Chicago, though, and had a good friend living in LA who I was in contact with over the course of the night (my favorite memory was when she called me at 12:15 my time – 10:15 her time – and I picked up the phone and screamed, “Oh my God, Harry dies!!” which she didn’t appreciate too much). But I got through this chapter still well before she could get her copy of the book, and I remember calling her when I finished it and just saying: Oh. My. Goodness. I knew as soon as I had read the battle in the sky that Deathly Hallows was going to be more intense, more exciting, and just crazier than any of the previous books. Whew!

  1. I noticed you haven’t changed the webstie banner yet. It is still art from HP and the Half Blood Prince.

  2. Sam, it often takes a few chapters before I get to a banner that fits (in fact, I’ve never changed the banner with the first chapter of a new book). Mostly this is due to the crazy shape that the images have to fit. But I also try to choose banner images that depict a scene that is a driving force behind the chapters I’m posting – and I would argue that Harry’s trip to the cave with Dumbledore is still very strong in his mind through this part of the story, even though it’s a new book. Remember that for Harry there aren’t breaks over the summers when the books end – he keeps living his life at the same old speed. :)

  3. Being at CHapter 4, did you mean “Hedwig dies” or “Mad-Eye dies” instead of “Harry dies”?

  4. Mario, no, I meant what I said – I was joking to give her a hard time. I hadn’t even gotten my book yet when she called. :)

  5. Good one!!
