`Harry potter and the order of the pheonix…critique

February 11, 2008

`Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is a great book written by J.K Rowling but as far as a I see it, it’s not perfect. Yes the book had many “suspenseful”, amazing, life changing events, but yet most if the event endings are given in the “suspense” that the author is trying to create for the reader. A quick example, when Harry is taken to Dumbledore to tell him about his dream, Dumbledore doesn’t pay attention to Harry and makes him impatient, as the author was trying to create suspense about what Harry was going to do she basically made it easier for me to know that Voldemort is going to do something to him. Now I’m not saying that the whole book was like that, I’m just saying that yes the book was great but very few but major ad ends. As many people would rate it a 4+ I am rating it a 3.5 out of 5, the book is good but not as good as what expected from this author. This author has written great books but I wouldn’t classify this when as one of them.

I am poem 

I am Mrs. Lapham the fat and poor tyrant

I wonder if Mr. Tweedie will ever become a man again

I hear my X husband’s death sounds

I see Cilla marrying Johnny Tremain

I want mage to forget about his husband and come back

I am Mrs. Lapham the fat and poor tyrant

  

I enjoy insulting Johnny

I feel though as if I’m gonna kill someone

I believe that I am a beauty queen

I worry that one day Mr. Tweedie will transform himself into a girl!

I cry when I hear about my X husband

I am Mrs. Lapham the fat and poor tyrant

 

I understand the fact that Johnny was our best worker

I say that this war should not be started!

I dream that one day I will become the next queen of Brittan

I try to help Mr. Tweedie in his work as much as I can

I hope that one day Johnny will come back to us with a normal hand!

I am Mrs. Lapham the fat and poor tyrant

INDEPENDENCE!!!!

November 17, 2007

Boston times,         

Today is a happy day for all Bostonians and all Americans for we have finally defeated the British and have gained our independence after lots of long fought battles. The one that truly showed what the British would have to face if they won another battle was shown at the battle of Yorktown.  All the colonists that had put themselves up to fight for the right of all colonist independence were finally rewarded after all the blood was settled down after this battle. Both sides suffered a lot of casualties and had come to a point where it was hard to determine which who would win…but through the courage and strength of our young men and few women we had taken down the British flag. The soldiers weren’t the only people that gained us independence…the continental congress sent the Brittan king the treaty of Paris declaring that all the colonies are to receive independence from the British and are allowed to have they’re own government and are most importantly allowed to trade with any neighboring or other countries.

Johnny tramain’s life!

Johnny Tremain 

Dear newspaper dude,

            I Johnny Tremain am sending you this letter to so you can post this on the newspaper and let the whole town know about the tragic injury that I, the best silversmith, have had. I was to put silver on a bucket that was ordered by MR. HANCOCK, the basket was completely perfect and so was everything else until my stupid, pig nose partner, dove handed me a cracked bottle to pour the silver in. At first I didn’t notice that it had a major crack  but later when I went to take the pot out of the furnace, I noticed that it had a crack but it was too late, the bottle exploded onto my hand and the burning hot silver splashed all over my hand. It felt like melted hot lava was put on to my hand. At first it hurt me a lot but as time passed by the pain soared itself away. After this event I was to be locked in a Birth/Death room until I was to get better. After a couple of weeks I finally took of the bandage around my hand and was completely shocked!!. My thumb was stuck to my closed hand making it look like an unusual fist and I wasn’t even able to move my hand anymore. I now think my life is worth less because of the fact that I cant be a silver smith anymore, this is very bad because silver-smithing is the talent I have and now just because of one accident it has been all washed away! I do nothing now except for running this family errand, fetching the water and coal is my every day process. I am no more seen as a silver smith in this family, to this family I’m not even worth a coin.

Sincerely,

Johnny Tremain

 Dear Johnny,

            I feel sad for what has happened to you but I don’t really feel pity for you as much as all others do. First of all you think too high of yourself calling yourself the best silver smith. Second I don’t like how you say that the only skill you have is silver smithing, that cant be true you must have an other skill…go out in the free and open world and try something, try something new! You are also giving up too fast, just because you cant move your hand doesn’t mean that your life is going to end! You should try everyday a certain exercise for your hand so that in a way your hand will one day open! This exercise that you will have to do is going to be painful but if you chose the right type it will be woth it at the end!  Start with trying to release the thumb first and then slowly progress into trying to opening the hand. Well that’s all I got to say and yes this will be on the newspaper

Sincerely,The newspaper dude A.K.A Thomas Jefferson
