Alright kids, you know the drill! First the obligatory mention of how you can purchase the illustrated edition, by going here. And of course, how could I forget our sponsor, Accio Box, which you can get 10% off on for the first 3 months by using code UNSPOILED. And you all should show your support for the show by checking both those things out.
Now on with the show. These chapters felt pretty long too, TBH, but there’s a lot of fluff in there as compared to later books. For example, the DeathDay party isn’t really pertinent to anything, not even later on in the series, but it gets a lot of attention here. Probably that’s just because J.K. was delighted with the whole concept of it, and I think she can be forgiven for that.
But most notably, what begins to happen here is that Harry is hearing a strange and disembodied voice, and that culminates after the DeathDay party with him discovering the petrified body of Mrs. Norris hanging by her tail from a torch bracket. AND SO IT BEGINS.
Thanks for listening, you adorable dorks! See you next week!
