Finished the last Harry Potter book last night. I am awed by JK Rowling’s writing skills. Every character has been so well etched! And her writing itself is brilliant. Harry remains my favorite character in the series (replacing Hermione from book#6 onwards). Hermione and Ron are also amazing! There are so many other characters that I really liked! There is so much I want to say about some of my favorite characters but I don’t want to put out any spoilers in case there is someone out there who hasn’t yet read all the books but is planning to read them in future. I may read these books again when my my boys are older and ready for them. But I know that it will not be the same as reading them for the first time. I am already experiencing Potter book withdrawal symptoms 😞Next up: watching the movies with my daughter. I am sure it won’t be the same as reading the books but I will give it a try.
I found this quote by Dumbledore to be insightful like many other quotes of his. I have found from my own experience that true leaders are not the power hungry ones but the ones with strong character and moral/ethical values (like Harry Potter) who often rise up to the occasion and lead naturally and genuinely.
