  • Harry Potter Chapter 1 Discussion *spoilers*

    Thread for Harry Potter discussion if you have completed reading Chapter 1. Out of respect for fellow readers, please do not post spoilers beyond Chapter 1 (or use spoiler tags for anything that relates to later chapters).

    Commence speculation!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    I was thinking that a thread where we all read with each otehr would be fun. However, I am way to fast of a reader. I'm already a few hundred pages in.

    What page is everyone on? I am on page...237.

                  Well since I am about two hours ahead of most of you, I have finished the book. I can only say that it was a pretty complicated plot.

                    I'm about halfway in. We had houseguests that just left, so now I can read in earnest!

                            Nobody is mentioning anything about Chapter 1. I guess I will be the first.

                            Having seen all 5 of the Harry Potter Movies,, you get a verbal picture when you begin to read the book.

                            Right from the beginning, you wonder again if Snape is really a traitor to Dumbledore.

                            I kept wondering who the suspended person was.

                            I can envision the Draco family,and their cringing in the presence of Voldemort.

                              One thing I really respect about Rowling is how the first chapter is always different, but recaps everything so nicely. I especially loved in the last book how we got to see the Muggle Prime Minister. She related everything to us indirectly. It was very wonderful.
