Uncorked Thoughts . Here is what we do:
This is a meme hosted Uncorked Thoughts. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! There is now a full list of the topics to come here.
Q. Best odd thing/incident/person from Harry Potter
A. One of my favorite odd things in Harry Potter books and movies is the Knight Bus. I think this is a clever way of getting transportation. Though it seems like it would be extremely uncomfortable to ride on. It's a triple decker bus. It is very very fast.
Objects simply just jump out of the way when the bus is coming. The decor on the bus changes from day to night. In the nighttime the bus has beds and candles. In the daytime the bus is full of seats that move around when the bus stops and goes. I am not even sure if I would want to ride on the Knight Bus to be honest!!!
I LOVE the Knight Bus! It's so much fun. I thought it was really weird when Harry first rode on it because there were already so many other forms of transportation, but I'm very glad it was introduced. Stan was also a neat character to meet there. I love Ron's reaction the first time that he rode on it. I can't post mine this week because I did a review, but I'm going to combine it with next week's question. Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see your answer next week. Such an odd form of transportation. The shrunken head is nuts and they did such a good job with it in the movie.. like a Jamaican!Delete
Awesome pick! I think I'd go for one ride, just to see what's it like, but otherwise this looks like a dangerous way to travel! :DReplyDelete
Beds and chairs moving is just one problem, the other is the driver... Maybe they changed him by now ^^
humm... maybe I would take a ride if I had some motion sickness medicine.Delete
Ahhhh great pick! I would LOVE to ride on this bus at least once. It'd probably be the only time haha.ReplyDelete
What's cool is that I think there is one in the UK that people can ride. That would be so fun!!!Delete
The Knight Bus is a great pick, but I'm not sure I could ever travel on it were it real! I hate rollercoasters, and the Knight Bus sounds like the road version of a rollercoaster.ReplyDelete
Rollercoaster for sure. I am way too old for rollercoasters now. They make me motion sick!Delete
I'm not too great with rollercoasters, either, but I think I'd try riding the Knight Bus just once so I could say I did. I always thought it was so cool how it could compress itself and squeeze between the other vehicles on the road!ReplyDelete
The part in the movie with the older grandma on the walker is great. In the book I love how things jump out of the way too!!Delete
