Harry Potter Quiz

I went with my family to see the latest Harry Potter flick. My oldest son and I are great fans of the books, having read them a couple of times each. The rest of my family has only seen the movies, which we've all liked.

I won't comment on the movie because I'm sure many people haven't seen it yet. I'll just say that I liked it, but it wasn't my favorite of them all. I am looking forward to the last two, however.

Speaking of which, I ran across a Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows quiz which you can take here. I did quite badly on the quiz (only got 3/10 right). I was thinking I need to reread that book before the final movies come out, and this quiz only reinforced that fact for me. The entire series is so dense with characters, events, and symbolism, it's impossible to absorb it all in just one reading. After watching the most recent movie, I feel the need to reread the Half Blood Prince, as well.

So, I guess it's time to go scrounging through all the bookshelves to find those two books. Even if I should be reading the neverending pile I've got to get done before my MFA residency next week.

Take the quiz and see how you do!

They were kind of hard! lol

I didn't do too bad though. 8/10.

I haven't read them since the second one. My kids have read them all - and listen to the tapes as well - still. As to the never ending pile of unread books, I can relate. Perhaps I need the rest to my pile.

I got 8/10, which made me a "Hogwarts Hero".

Incidentally, I thought the final book cried out for the attentions of a cold-hearted editor. It was far too long and digressive.

Oh my gosh, I got 10 out of 10! I am a true Harry Potter nerd.

My nephew Sam just discovered these books. My sister had to bribe him to read the first one. Of course once he started he couldn't stop.

7/10 not to shabby considering I haven't read that book in ages!

We went to go see the New Harry Potter with our Aunt who is a book lover and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince ended up as a smoldering mass of ash when we were done bashing it. :)
