Harry Potter excerpts, pt. 2 (of 2 (probably))

by on Jul.19, 2007, under Uncategorized

So, I guess I don’t have much credibility left, but I still want to post these. The reason I put a possible “of 3” on the first post is because I wasn’t sure if there would be any more interesting stuff in Half-Blood Prince (I’m nearly finished rereading it). Doesn’t look like there’ll be much else worth excerpting, though.

“Harry got slowly out of bed and started looking for socks. He found a pair under his bed and, after pulling a spider off one of them, put them on. Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept.”
–Sorcerer’s (Philosopher’s) Stone, p. 19

“Harry suddenly realized that the spider that had dropped him was saying something. It had been hard to tell, because he clicked his pincers with every word he spoke.
‘Aragog!’ it called. ‘Aragog!'”
–Chamber of Secrets, p. 276

“Quite a few people screamed. A giant spider, six feet tall and covered in hair, was advancing on Ron, clicking its pincers menacingly.”
–Prisoner of Azkaban, p. 138

“But it was no use–the spider was either so large, or so magical, that the spells were doing no more than aggravating it. Harry had one horrifying glimpse of eight shining black eyes and razor-sharp pincers before it was upon him.”
–Goblet of Fire, p. 631

“They moved from the drawning room to a dining room on the ground floor where they found spiders large as saucers lurking in the dresser (Ron left the room hurriedly to make a cup of tea and did not return for an hour and a half).”
–Order of the Phoenix, p.117

“At last, Narcissa hurried up a street named Spinner’s End, over which the towering mill chimney seemed to hover like a giant admonitory finger.”
–Half-Blood Prince, p. 21

“There are only two people in the whole world who know the full contents of the prophecy made about you and Lord Voldemort, and they are both standing in this smelly, spidery broom shed.”
–Half-Blood Prince, p. 78

“See, the rest o’ the tribe…Aragog’s family…they’re gettin’ a bit funny now he’s ill…bit restive…”
–Half-Blood Prince, p. 231
