The other boy that lived: Neville in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

Where to begin, where to begin – ah yes with the beginning...

Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”

This is one of three opening sentences that I know off by heart (if you're curious the other two are Pride and Prejudice and The Bible). You can kind of guess the importance I place on this book simply by those associations.

Ok this really isn't going to work.... I can't just write about every single line in all of these books, well actually I could, quite happily, but no one else want to read that and if my poor mother might die trying.

There are just so many things I could write about each one of these books, so I think it would be best if I pick a theme and stick to it. The theme for this blog is none other then my beloved sidekick, Neville Longbottom... the boy that almost was the hero.
