Witch book chould be left out of series?.

Just say Harry Potter only had six books and witch book could be cut out ?.

I think Maybe 2nd book or 5th book.

Becouse if Fudge belive Harry about Voldemort return and then 5th could be just like 6th book as Dumbledore would able to show Harry Voldemort memory's sooner.

thoughts?.

None. I see Harry Potter books as combined. It's all part of the story; without one of them, it's not Harry Potter.

None could be left out. And I really hope you were punning with your title.

None I am sorry. They all go well together and it wouldn't be the same if one was left out plus think of the things that would have to change if you take a book out. I agree with the poster above me about that being a pun because it's which not Witch.

It's ok I just wanted to point it out and it's not so small. Words may sound the same, but they don't mean that same. In this case it's easy to tell what you mean, but that isn't always the case.

Re: Witch book chould be left out of series?.

I don't think any book should be left out. Here's what's important about each book:
Spoiler: show


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone- Harry finds out he's a very famous wizard and Voldemort is still alive.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets- Introduces Dobby and enforces the idea that Lucius Malfoy is a Death Eater.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban- Introduces Sirius and Lupin, also introduces dementors and we find out about Patronuses.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix- Sirius dies and Harry hears the prophecy.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince- Snape kills Dumbledore.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Harry defeats Voldemort.

Harry Potter was written as a ring composition, so no books can be omitted.

None.. but if i had to choose; i'd say the third book.... Nothing major really happened, it seemed more of a filler then anything.

Funnily, you left one book out.

In Goblet of Fire Harry could've finally had a normal year, just watching the tournament. Sadly a Death Eater ruined it.

I prefer if Harry actually had a normal year that time.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

This book was largely filler. Could've been dealt with in other books quite easily.

Re: Witch book chould be left out of series?.

Nope. Sure couldnt. You really get a feel for the type of villian that Voldemort is. Horcruxes are introduced and explained in detail. Dumbledore teaches Harry how to defeat Voldemort.

Also Harry and Ginny.

Not filler at all. Prelude to the conclusion, sure. Set up book definitely.

Re: Witch book chould be left out of series?.

Nope. Stand by my original statement. You already had a feel for how terrible Voldemort by the fact that he was willing to kill a child for power. Horcruxes could have been explained or mentioned somewhere else especially when you have a character like Hermione who is great at exposition. Dumbledore does nothing of the sort.

Harry and Ginny add nothing to the story at all.

Lots of filler. Feels like a history lesson to me. Could have been dealt with quicker.

Re: Witch book chould be left out of series?.

How does Harry and Ginny not add anything to the story? She fufilled his greatest desire. It speaks a lot about Harrys character as well. It was importsnt development.

We had a feeling how terrible he was...but you didnt really, truly know who Voldemort was intil HFB. You didnt know his true motivation...because up until that point we all believed it was domination, and it partially was but also immortality.

And where could you fit in the Horcruxes, in OOtp where it was already 800 pages? Or in Deathly Hallows where you already dealing with the hallows and Dumbledore being dead? This book was necessary for that.

Hermione is great at exposition and being that encyclopediac knowledge of the magical world....but she lacked the understanding of the enemy...and what exactly a horcrux even was considering the knowledge was forbidden at Hogwarts.

I suppose Dumbledore could have lived...but then the hunt for the horcruxes becomes insanely easy.

I suppose the argument could be made that the other books could have been more streamlined to allow this, but I think doing that takes away from the series in general.

HBP was necessary for a lot of reasons.

Now I imagine, what if the 7 books of Harry Potter were divided to focus on one Horcrux for each book?

That would have changed the entirety of the series. There was so much more to explore...doing it that way would have changed everything.

Re: Witch book chould be left out of series?.

There's that song, Harry Potter in 99 seconds...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=y57sYHIDP_Y which pretty much strips the series to its basic elements. When it gets to Half-Blood Prince, it goes:

"Split your soul
Seven parts of a whole
They're Horcruxes
It's Dumbledore's end..."

That's the essence of the book, and it could be inserted elsewhere, removing the book, without fatally wounding the plot.

In order of importance, I'd rank...

1) Philosopher's Stone
2) Deathly Hallows
3) Prisoner of Azkaban
4) Order of Phoenix
5) Goblet of Fire
6) Chamber of Secrets
7) Half-Blood Prince

Interesting how the books seem to alternate in importance- 1, 3, 5 and 7 being the crucial ones (subjectively).

Who cares about most important? The books are meant to entertain, and I was entertained by all of them. You leave one out and the entertainment factor drops even if you still can solve the mystery and defeat the baddie.

I think "Prisoner of Azkaban" should have been left out. There's way too much about Buckbeak in it, and got boring after a while.
