Day ?? - Harry Potter 7 Deathly Hallows (Leaked?)


OK... so I haven't updated in I don't know how long... But that's because I've been quite busy reading a copy of the newest Harry Potter books "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." (I can't give you the copy here obviously, so if you want it find it yourself; it's easy enough with Google)

I was quite surprised and excited at the same time when I received this PDF document from a friend of mine and started going through the book right away. I was very skeptical with the book and wanted to see if it is really the original that's soon going to be released soon so I quickly started to read the first chapter.

Well a week (reading only after work) and 659 pages later I'm rather convinced that this is definitely not JKR's original work, although it was extremely entertaining and it did carry through many of the elements that makes Harry Potter a widely popular book. At first, if you don't care much about the plot of the previous books, or you forgot almost all of the plot elements (like me) you'll find it perfectly enjoyable. You'll only find one major flaw with this copy of Harry Potter... the constant make-out sessions between Harry and Ginny ("snogging session" in the case of this book.) I can't believe how much "snogging" there was inside the book, every chapter will have one. There are also many references (trust me... there are MANY) to sex and other things which I found very inappropriate. Now I know JK is trying to make the book grow with the readers and all that but I still don't think that she would have focused on the horny aspect of Harry in her book when he should be out there kicking Voldemort's ass.

This doesn't even include the "very obvious" mention of Harry and Ginny's having sex at the end of the book. Now I know it's no big deal since they are "of age" and all... but still 17 and 16 is kinda out of JKR's character to be writing about.

After I read the book I started thinking and saw quite a bit of missing plot elements and holes that were left out that pointed towards the inauthenticity of this copy. For example:
  1. People die way too easily here...
    • Wormtail died without repaying Harry's Life Debt
    • Greyback got pecked to death by an apparently Super Veela bird (WTF at this one)
    • Remus and Tonks... well... they basically killed themselves (although it was still sad as hell)
  2. No mention of what made Dumbledore smile when Harry told him that Voldemort used his blood to regain power.
  3. Well... I expected Snape to redeem himself... he didn't (meh)
  4. The way Harry defeated Voldemort was gay really... I mean... Voldemort being scared of the love people has for Harry or the love Harry has for others... is just kinda dumb. (Harry actually having the balls to cast the killing curse kicked ass though)
There are probably a lot more but those are pretty much enough proof to tell me that it's fake. Still, I enjoyed the book very much and kudos to the person/fan who put so much time and effort into this piece. It occupied me and I liked quite a few of the plot elements within the book which I thought were quite well done.

Now I'm just waiting for the real thing... and if it turns out that this was actually real... well... there was sex... it should be rated R or smth.

Day 45 - Wasted Trip, Sort of

Haven't update in a damn long while, lol. Due mostly to laziness and nothing to update anymore other than bad food and boring work XD

Anyways, I've gone to the TAJ MAHAL last weekend. It was beautiful, but the tour there and back was horrible. Wish we went by ourselves. Pictures can be found here

;) we had a great weather day, so the pics came out spectacular. haha

Today we went out to try to go to Akshaddam (bad spelling) but the queue was damn long so we never went in (woulda taken an hour) so we went shopping instead XD, got some nice clothes, hehe.

Anyways! What actually prompted me to write again in the first place is a book I bought yesterday, which I finished today (took me about 4 hours maybe.) It's a great book, almost made me cry. Most recommended. The book name is For One More Day by Mitch Albom (the author of Tuesday With Morrie and Five People You Meet in Heaven) It gave me a lot to think about how I'm spending my time and how I should live my life. Everybody should read this book... I can lend it to you, whoever is reading this, if you can come find me. LOL, otherwise go BUY IT you freaking cheap ass! It's a good book, INVEST!

I won't spoil the book, but it's going to really give you things to think about.

If anybody have Five People, please lend it to me! That's the only one I haven't read. I heard it's good too.

Day 24 - Another One of Those Days

LOL, this is gonna be another super short post :P

I ummmmm had less fever today but now have another case of severe diarrhea, so that's no good. Trying to eat less and drink more water. Didn't get much work done today, felt rather weak.

But other than that I'm as strong as a horse! Yep! Nothing to worry about! (Mom, if you're reading this, don't worry, I'm taking care of myself. Really really!)
