Harry Potter Mania

Have you re-read your Harry Potter series? I have. I recently re-read Order of the Phoenix just to freshen my mind for the upcoming movie. I have plans to attend this movie on Friday, July 13th early in the morning so as not to view it with former or future students. My favorite moments in Order surround Delores Umbridge, the High Inquisitor. Her character reminds me so much of members of my county's education administation, I swear that JK Rowling must have been hiding in my county while writing the book. The best part, in my opinion, is when the Weasley twins create a swamp and then fly off while telling Ms. Umbridge what they really think. I have dog-eared those 2 pages!

I have also re-read Half-Blood Prince. I am left, for the 3rd time, with the emotion of sadness at the passing of Dumbledore and the frustation of whether Professor Snape is in the Order or a Death Eater. I am 60% certain that he is a Death Eater, but the doubts linger.

One theory that a friend of mine has is that Snape and Dumbledore was using PolyJuice Potion and have switched identities. As much as I would like for Snape to have been the one to have expired, I am not too keen on that theory.

Well, we'll just have to read Deathly Hallows on July 21st.

Any Potter thoughts?
