“It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.” – Albus Dumbledore

These words are my inspiration. When I started reading Harry potter i was not even in my early or late teens. I was 24 years old. I was awestruck when i watched the first part "Harry potter and the Sorceress stone" as a movie when i was in college. By then i was determined to read the book. But unfortunately i was able to get hold of the book only after i got a job. The book entirely captured my brain. It went to the extent that after reading the book, I would get dreams in my deep sleep (visualization of whatever i read). Sometimes even I get dreams which were not even in the book. Once i finished reading the first part, I rushed to the store to get the next and subsequent parts. Sixth and Seventh part was not published by then. I used to stack up all the books near my pillow in the bed. Once i am back from work, i have dinner and start reading HP from where i left previously. It would go on till i fall asleep. There are times when i use to keep alarm at 4 'o'clock in the morning just to read Harry Potter. Sometimes i could not stand the suspense and just flip to the last page and make sure all the characters are healthy, fine and happy. J.K.Rowling, author of the book has done a fantastic job of making the audience to be glued to the book until they finish it. She has actually done a great work of making young kids to actually "read books" who are otherwise busy with social networks. Hats off to J.K.Rowling! I hope she writes lot more books like this. I keep wondering the power of her imagination and the strength to actually put in in words and make a novel out of it. The characters Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione are going to be immortal and be loved and cherished by all the current and future generations.
