Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 53 Days
September 28, 2010, 01:28 AM
There are now only 53 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 is today's quote!
"It's in the dungeons," said Harry clearly. "You enter through the wall. It's full of skulls and stuff and it's under the lake, so the light's all green.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
, "Malfoy Manor"
I’ll just echo everyone else here. Malfoy Manor was so intense reading it the 1st time. I remember I actually stopped reading half way through, put the book down and just stared at the front cover. I rang my friend to say I was too scared to read on cos I think Hermione is going to die. I didn’t want to keep reading because if I stopped she was still alive…
Looking back now- my God what a woose I am!! Of course Jo wasn’t going to kill her off. But in the lead up to DH- it felt like anyone was up for grabs
Those snatchers were awful. when Bellatrix casually defeated and decided to execute the whole group of snatchers, it really served as reminder of how totally depraved she is. Then add the torture of Hermione, the casual mutilation of Griphook, and finally the murder of poor little Dobby (sob), and I cannot help feeling she is only second to Voldemort himself in how evil she is. Hated her!
It’s SO lucky he knew that … even if it didn’t help him x)
Crazy-intense chapter. I could not imagine how they would escape. This will be uber-scary in the film, I’m sure.
Great quote. That was one of the scariest parts in the whole book! Greyback had better be as frightening in the Deathly Hallows as he should be! I thought that his role was too minimal in the last movie.
Harry’s quick thinking bought them some time and made the Snatchers pause long enough to take them to Malfoy Manor. I was afraid when I first read it, that they might have killed one or more of the Trio right there.
When I read DH this was the about the point when the story began to shift from despair to hopeful action. Yes, they are in a bad situation but somehow I felt the worst was past. The first half of the book felt like such very dark, stumbling, and unknown path. I admit reading up to this point made me feel quite sad; until Ron came back.
I liked this chapter because Harry begans to really learn control; although he does not realize it. He has to keep himself in the present, look into He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named’s thought’s, and with help from Ron (who’s anguish I could feel for Hermione) subdue Wormtail. He also finally used the mirror that Sirius gave him; all I could think of was Dumbledore saying from Book 2, “help will always be given to those at Hogwart’s, who ask for it”.
That was one of my favourite chpaters. next to Prince’s Tale that is. I love the intensity and action in the chapter. But that’s when Dobby…………
Scary part!!! Quick thinking on the part of Hermione!
The description of the Slythlerin common room contributes greatly to the idea that J.K. unfairly demonized the Slytherins. I don’t know how much I agree with that idea but the description is pretty dark. It doesn’t leave much room for “good” Slytherins.
53 Days Left!! :D
haha harry dominated that question
