Give us your review of Half-Blood Prince.
Half-Blood Prince is an amazing book. I first bought it in English (because I just couldn't wait until November to read it in Croatian) and I read it in two days. I like the whole book very much except the end. I was crying like a baby when I read that Dumbledore died. I was also very surprised when I read that Harry loves Ginny; I thought that he would be with Luna.
Did you like the fourth movie or not and why?
Yes, I liked it very much!! It's great. I liked how the actors
acted! I think that they chose the perfect actress for Rita Skeeter, she played the part very well. I liked all the scenes, but especially the Yule Ball. I loved Hermione's dress and Ron's was really funny. The bath scene was amazing too. I loved how Daniel & Shirley Henderson (Moaning Myrtle) played it. It was really funny.
If you could spend the day as one EVIL character from the books, who would it be?
Voldemort. I'd like to see how he lives his life, where he's hiding and all his plans and everything.
Which GOOD character would you want to be for a day?
Luna Lovegood. She is my favourite character because she is much like me. People think she's weird but when you really meet her, you realize that she is actually a very nice person.
If you could have any magical power what would it be?
Legilimency. I think it's very cool when you can read someone's mind. We are often very curious what other people think and [with Legilimency] you wouldn't have to wonder anymore because you would know. And also in a test, when you don't know something, you just read someone's mind and know the answer. J
What is your favourite moment of the series so far?
There are lots of great moments. Maybe I like the DA's meetings and when Fred and George left the school the most. That was really funny. And in Half-Blood Prince when Luna is commentating the game.
Is Snape REALLY good or evil and is Dumbledore REALLY dead?
This question is troubling lots of the fans. I think that Dumbledore is really dead (unfortunately) but he once said: I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me
Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it. I think all the fans noticed that and he also once said To a well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. Dumbledore was a great wizard who wasn't afraid of death but I don't believe that he would leave Harry alone to find all those Horcruxes. I think there will be a way how they will talk. What I still don't understand is why Dumbledore (on the portrait) didn't say anything. I was expecting him to talk and tell Harry his plans. To be honest, I'm not sure if Snape is good or evil. One day I think he's good, one day I think he's evil. Everything is possible. He might be good because Hagrid caught Dumbledore and Snape fighting and they were maybe fighting about [whether] Snape should kill him or not. There are some things which kind of show that Snape is good and some that show that he's evil. We will all have to wait for Book 7 to find out.
Will Harry survive the 7th book?
I think he will; I hope so. I don't think that Harry will die because it would be cruel of J.K. Rowling to kill him. I think all the fans would cry then. I'm not sure if Harry's death would be a good ending for seven books. Lots of people are wondering whether he will survive or not. Half of the fans think he'll survive, half of the fans [think] he will die. I'm in that half which think that he will survive.
