After all, to the well-organised mind, death is but the next great adventure.
Still my favorite quote ever. It really is a luxury permitted only to those who don’t get ahead of themselves. Only to those who cross their bridges once they’ve gotten there, rather than imagining the journey over before they’ve even come ten years within its orbit.
So, obviously, there’s really no need to review the content of Harry Potter. I’ve read the first four twice, and have to say, the illustrations really do add a stroke of magic to a novel that is otherwise impossibly magical.
The story-telling has always taken a bit to get into. It’s very “Once upon a time…” which is unlike that of young adult fiction this day and age.
But other than that, here are some of my favorite illustrations. I recommend the illustrated versions if you’ve never before read the Harry Potter series. They’re beautiful, evenly paced, and bring great clarity to foreign content.
Bravo Jim Kay. If it was possible to make Harry Potter better, you certainly would have.
