this book really cemented my distaste for snape. and i know that it had the exact opposite effect on lots of other people. it pisses me off to no end that he can't just grow up and get over his grudge against james potter and sirius black. everyone had someone to make them miserable in school and we all get over it. we don't take it out on the orphaned children of whichever jackass made us feel bad about ourselves when we were 14.

anyway, prisoner was the very first harry potter book i ever read. it's not my favorite, but i think rowling does an honestly good job with establishing the map and m.w.p.p. and snape and the shack, as i could follow along well from page one without knowing any of the preceding stories. the shack scene itself is pretty heavy on the info dump, but not to any real affect.

I don't know...there are two people in particular that picked on me back in the 8th grade whose lives I would gladly end were no consequences to follow in my own life.

but in this instance, those people are already dead. and you would be picking on their 14-year old kid.

Picking on kids is fun :P

In all seriousness, it is quite unfair what Snape does to Harry, but his motivation is somewhat understandable. I mean, if I knew that kid X was the child of Asshole Who Made Me Come Home Crying Every Day, I wouldn't look at them in the most neutral light. It's sad, but it's true. I hope I could rise above the pettyness and treat the kid right, but...I don't know. Old grudges are hard to get over.
