Finally, after sharing some thoughts about the Harry Potters series and three of its memorable characters, I would like to conclude by quoting a few lines not from the HP series but from the book ‘Sandman: A Book of Dreams’. This is from the story written by Robert Rodi entitled ‘An Extra Smidgen of Eternity’.
One of the characters said:
“Stories are important…stories are hope. They take you out of yourself for a bit, and when you dropped back in, you’re different – you’re stronger, you’ve seen more, you’ve felt more. Stories are like spiritual currencies.”
This is entirely true for me after reading the Harry Potter stories. Other than the plots which completely overwhelmed me, I also got the feeling of being in whole new world because of the interconnected people and details weaved almost all throughout the series. The series was never short of insights about life. I can only say that its detractors are really missing a literary treasure of this age.
As of now, there is nothing to be done except to reread the books, go over the six film adaptations again, and wait for the first part of HP7.
