So the first question – do you prefer books over movies?
Well, for harry potter one should. As a child when i saw harry potter movies i never thought that there was so much to be explored in the entire series. But now that i know that it is important to read a book and not to judge it from the movies that are made from them, harry potter series seems to be a whole new thing to me. Not even a single chapter had been shown as it is in the movies. Well, honestly i became a potterhead after reading all the 7 books and now it seems really disappointing to me that there are alot of things ‘not’ shown in the movies. But the directors are not responsible for it as in it was a 1.5 hr movie what more could they show.
Hp series are not a children fiction. It has alot of things that j.k depicts indirectly. Alot could be understand from the text like the political injustice.
In the 5 th book order of phoenix when nobody believes harry and dumbledore and the ministry starts interfering in school matters. It actually shows that how badly the minister of magic was worried for his position.
Also, in the 3rd prisoner of azkaban sirius wasn’t actually guilty but was sent to azkaban. And karkarof, lucius malfoy, and many other death eaters were freed. This shows the exact reality of law and justice.
Also the colour allotted to slytherin is green which is the colour of peace and red is allotted to gryffindor which depicts anger and rage. Having an opposite nature regardless of which their house colour depicts j.k rowling breaks colour stereotypes.
The character of snape is debatable as well as contentious. By this character j.k shows that sometimes people choose the dark side because they have their own reasons. For snape was bullied and he had no other person whom he loved but lily. Because lily choosed james over him, he had no other choice but to go over the dark side. Also, he was the only death eater who could produce a patronus charm. This shows that the circumstances made him choose the dark side.
And there are endless things that proves that harry potter series were never a children fiction. Just the text needs to be analysed properly my friend 😉 ❤
Potterhead forever ❤
