I long for freedom, and when I get it, I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I will surely be happy.

I have at last finished the seventh book of the Harry Potter series, I feel like I have nothing to do now :( I even read all the short stories and articles Rowling released after them, I guess it is time to move on to another series.

I don't wanna talk about the incredible magical effect of these books on me (literally :P), I do love fiction, especially this kind, and I enjoyed every bit and detail of it, but the thing I wanna point out and the thing that most people forget to stress when they read these books or introduce their children to them, is that they are more than adventure fiction books, there is so much more to them. Rowling, so beautifully and smoothly, shed light on so many essential and realistic issues, she depicted slavery through house elves, she discussed racism through pure-bloods and muggle-borns, and most importantly I had no choice but to fall in love with the strong, independent, brilliant female Hermaione was, how beautiful is it to have such a great female character for children to read about and admire!
Second, I just cried my eyes out when I read Snape's story in the book, it was touching in movie yes, but in the book it is simply heart breaking! I've heard people say that Rowling wrote one of the most touching love stories in one chapter, and they were absolutely right.

I don't exaggerate when I say that like Rickman, I will read this story again even when I'm 80, thank you J.K. Rowling for this small treasure you've given to people <3 off to start reading The Hobbit and LOTR :)
