Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 63 days left until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here two quotes for yesterday and today!

“We’ve caught Potter!”

- Fenrir Greyback

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, “Malfoy Manor”

“Mundungus Fletcher,” croaked the elf, his eyes still tight shut. “Mundungus Fletcher stole it all: Miss Bella’s and Miss Cissy’s pictures, my Mistress’s gloves, the Order of Merlin, First Class, the goblets with the family crest, and — and –”

Kreacher was gulping for air: His hollow chest was rising and falling rapidly, then his eyes flew open and he uttered a bloodcurdling scream.

–and the locket, Master Regulus’s locket, Kreacher did wrong, Kreacher failed in his orders!”

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, “Kreacher’s Tale”

Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: I like Kreacher but only after when he became trio's friend. Otherwise i can't forget Sirius died only because of him. The 1st quote gave me goosebumps.
