Melonica Stormborn Posted July 10, 2012 Share Posted July 10, 2012 The even-numbered books of a series tend to be slower for me. Resolving the conflicts of the preceding book and setting up the plots for the next book could be rather anti-climactic. However, they're equally important to establish mood and character development. Forgive me for this poor example but just look at Chamber of Secrets, Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince - for me these are the weaker books for HP but they did establish a lot of character development (e.g. Harry's honor, Hermione's SPEW initiative which annoyed the hell out of me but established her good nature). Also suffered from poor editing when JK got too big. Just look at the page count of books 4-7.That said, if you got over The Two Towers (LOTR), then you sure as hell can get over AFFC.
