Percy wouldn’t notice a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing one of Dobby’s hats.
Ooh, I didn’t like this one as much… I’m torn between a three and a four-star, but I’ll go with the higher based on the ending.
I found so many characters infuriating – plus I did not like the Harry I was reading, and only the final task onwards really had my attention. I struggled so much up to this point to keep reading. Which actually really upsets me, as I had high hopes based on it being my best friends favourite – but then this is one of my least favourite films of the series.
It was super interesting to see how the films deviated though. I would have loved to see the house-elf scenes make it to the films – but otherwise, I think I preferred the film. The second task was pretty tame unlike in the film, and the first also wasn’t as thrilling. The threat was kind of taken away – I know these are still super scary and are for children, but after seeing the film before reading the book, I felt let down.
I know I talk about the film a lot, and I probably shouldn’t compare as much, but I just expected so much more from this book. I didn’t hate it, and I know I’ve not talked about what I loved too much (I mean, most people have at least seen the films if not read the books), but I just didn’t love it.
