Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

November 01, 2008

Happy Halloween!


I never have paid patience in reading novels or books with complex stories and characters. I dont give a bull's ass. I dislike authors who use the first person's point of view. I still love reading stories of omnipresent storytellers. One of the stories--in the first person's perspective-- i hate is Stephen King's BAG OF BONES Its a ghost story, scary and terrifying. Thematically, it carries paranormal terror that pushes you into drifting thoughts of a gothic experience. But its boring behind its intelligent craftmanship. Events show up as to what the main character--who's the storyteller-- only sees. He doesnt know what's happening nearby or beyond...that's what the story lacks: ONIPRESENCE of the storyteller.
Recently, i started reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. A very hot afternoon suddenly turned into a magical moment filled up with excitement as i turn page by page. The excellent storyline, and creative imagination of Joanne K. Rowling made me sink into a straightforward pageturning. I even forgot taking my meals! I envy Ms. Rowling for her intuitive (call it whimsical) ideas which have been probably taken from the cupboards of Celtic fairytales, folklore, religion, mythology (so logical), anthropology, and literature--she has broken the line of distinction between what we now consider as children's literature and old literature. The story is suitable to all ages!
Long before I've read the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and upon reading it, i can already picture the vivid descriptions on my mind in full trailer! "Twas as if im watchin the movie. so i liked it forever. And lately, after reading (perhaps) the latest episode, I swung my head into thin air meditating; sometimes wishing i was one of the characters performing witchcraft. Im obsessed with Harry Potter (not with Daniel Radcliffe ha!!) especially now that he's already a handsome teenager. His character shifted from a downtrodden boy into a gangly adolescent.
I always check the newest and the latest websites of Harry Potter. I have mastered the proper pronunciation of names, spells, places,etc. in the story (e.g. HERMIONE --Her -My-onee--) Pathetic, aint it?
Anyroad, i heard that the film of this episode will be out this July. how i wish i could purchase a premiere ticket for that. Of course, I'll do everything just to have a movie ticket. The story gets more exciting than ever after the five sequels. The next episode--Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-- is more thrilling. H
..Half-Blood Prince is tragical, an unexpected twist of the story happens in the end. Severus Snape killed Albus Dumbledore using the Avada Kedavra curse. Harry is struggling to discover the ultimate vulnerability of Lord Voldemort by destroying his Horcruxes (where He encased his ripped soul). Teenagers in Hogwarts flirt and fall inlove. Hermione hooked up with Ron. Harry with Ginny.

Whoa! I claim that I am a great Harry potter fan, eventually. I became engrosed with the book and the movie, like others did. I skip my meals just to pursue reading the story, i became oblivious of things i normally do cause of him. But its worthwhile. I reckon i have learned a lot of things when i started reading the story. Blimey...i found my edge among others who do not find pleasure in reading books. Thanks Harry, you changed my life a bit. :-)
