Synopsis from Goodreads:
Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing – if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him?
First, this iconic quote:
Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.
“After all this time?”
“Always,” said Snape.
Now instead of posting a proper review, I shall share some other memorable quotes from the book:
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
And another great piece of wisdom from Dumbledore:
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”
And this truest of all true things:
“We’re all human, aren’t we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
And this, because I really wish this was a real thing that happened:
“He can run faster than Severus Snape confronted with shampoo.”
My patronus is probably a greasy-haired Snape, honestly.
And I apologize for writing this review like a last-minute Buzzfeed post that’s missing all of the relatable gifs. Now I’m done.
Until next year, you guys. Or maybe next month. It’s never too soon for a re-read.
