Speaking of Real…

My favorite lines from a new favorite book series.

‘Tell me one last thing,’ said Harry. ‘Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?’ Dumbledore beamed at him, and his voice sounded loud and strong in Harry’s ears even though the bright mist was descending again, obscuring his figure. ‘Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?’

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

My Teen Guy finished reading this aloud this evening and his first comments after uttering The End were “Good gravy! That was flipping awesome!” I heartily agree. This was my third time through the series and it only improves with rereading. It is one of the many things in my life that, for a season, I had made up my mind about without bothering to check the sources themselves until fortuitous circumstances changed that. If you have not read the series and enjoy the classic works of the modern masters Tolkien, Lewis, and L’Engle, I heartily commend you to give them a read.
