We see in this book that at least for now, Hermione’s only real friends are Harry and Ron. And yes, it is sad when they are not getting along.

I think we are all a bit confused as to the actual powers of a Bogart acting as a Dementor.

Listening to the podcast I was impressed with how similar the idea of casting a Patronus is to the way Peter flies in Peter Pan. Happy thoughts 🙂

I love that Harry was not written as a miracle wizard. In many ways, he is just an ordinary kid.

I wonder if the Dementors are attracted to harry due to the Horcrux within him.

Come on ladies. As far as we know in the story at the moment Crookshanks just killed Ron’s pet, one of the few things that was his own. Hermione had no control over her cat.
