Never Better

My reading in the first few days was interrupted by some slumber parties, a trip accompanying a friend, and a quite big summer-house-cleaning event, so it was only the first lines I read over and over the whole time, slipping through my brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind.

Then there I was, finishing the book straight through holiday, and woke up Thursday morning feeling dizzy and a bit dissapointed. Ok, HBP features some new characters, new experiences and introducing new problems, filling the information gaps of the previous books, and reveal more point of view on some old characters I have been waiting for. But what with the excitement of waiting, the official site and everything, the storyline was not as tight, the bond between chapters is not as significant, compared to the others. And from the first Hogwarts lesson I could correctly guess who the Half-Blood Prince really was. Sigh...
Well, it is children's book after all, they said. Too much confusing plot is not good, so there goes the boring explanation of events that needs no mention anyway. Time to inhale a bit, review the preceding five books, and prepare for the last, they said.
So I just throw the book under my bed, and turn back waiting for the weekly OP that seemed to be interesting me more nowadays. (This week, it featured the "gate of Justice" based on the "shariah" gate on Andalusia... tsah).

But then I abandoned my pirate projects feeling exhausted, and sleep with weird dreams concerning the book and its next story, full of theories to defend Snape. Yap,
Professor Snape, the double-triple-quadruple-unreadable agent.

How it should become clear that his choices happened to be the right thing to do, and how he could make peace again with his students and companions.
Then I realised, however bad the book was, it is kind of growing on me, corrupting my deepest memory.
Well, no doubt it's his character that keeps me devoted to the whole story (although I actually started to care about the books since the appearance of the marauders). And it's also the only part perfectly acted that makes me willing to watch the movies (though the actor seems older -and more handsome?- than he should have been), in my opinion.

Shouldn't have read this book before the story finally over. But it was already too late, and I am afraid I have to endure some other Snape nightmares for quite a while... (^_^;

I still trust you, Sir.

Btw, this is not in the book, but does anybody ever think of any relative connection possibility, that Irma Pince = I am Prince?

You scored as Severus Snape. Well you're a tricky one aren't you? Nobody quite has you figured out and you'd probably prefer it stayed that way. That said you are a formidable force by anyone's reckoning, but there is certainly more to you than a frosty exterior and a bitter temper.
