1. Which Harry Potter book is your favorite and why?
Book 3, Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. The writing reached its peak, the characters were better-drawn, the relationship between Harry and Sirius added a lot to the series, and this book finally made me feel I was reading a series with a through-plot. I’ve enjoyed 4, 5 and, to a lesser degree, 6, but Rowling has fallen into writing set pieces with movies in mind, and I find that distracting. (Not that I don’t enjoy the movies, too.)
2. Which character do you most resemble? Which character would you most like to get to know?
I don’t see it, but when I do the quizzes I get Hermione. At least I don’t come up as Mrs. Weasley.
I would like to get to know Snape, as long as he arrives in the person of Alan Rickman…
3. How careful are you about spoilers?
a) bring ’em on–even if I know the destination, the journey’s still good
b) eh, I’d rather not know what happens, but I’m not going to commit Avada Kedavra if someone makes a slip
c) I will sequester myself in a geodesic dome to avoid finding anything out
c) I am usually a major spoiler addict, but not with Harry Potter. I’ll be offline next weekend until I finish the book. Seriously. Good thing it comes out during my vacation!
4. Make one prediction/share one hope about book 7.
That Snape will turn out to be one of the good guys.
Rowling has said she’s not planning any prequels or sequels, but are
there characters or storylines (past or future) that you would like to
No, I’m ready for closure. (But ask me again when I’ve read the book.)
