I pictured two very menacing looking people walking down a small alleyway like place. I pictured that they were on their own and it was deserted. What it said is about small plants like 'brambles' which described the street they were walking down. I found it a good peice of literature overall, and very descriptive.

I found the reading of the book very descriptive and well written, and in my mind I pictured two frisky old men walking around all old and withered but yet tough and strong, because of the way the person was reading the dialouge of the characters and the way the talked gave me that feeling and visual in my mind. I also pictured a wierd and strange looking peacock making wierd noises since most things in the Harry Potter series are very different from real life.

When I listened to this part of the book I pictured two men wearing dark robes. I pictured them walking in complete unison with each other in a whispering conversation while in a yellow lighted walkway. When it said they both turned, the setting totally changed and they were now infront of a black gate with white lights glowing and lighting up the whole scene. While they were walking through the gate, the gate seemed to be transparent but still faintly black. Again, when they were through the gate, the lights dimmed and they were in a dully lit brick and wide driveway.

One thing that I visualized while listening to this exerpt was the pure white peacock emergiing from the hedge. I see a rustle in the bushes and the two men stopping; the taler one with his wand pointed over the other's head towards the bush. And then I see a small dainty pure white peacock head energe from the shrubs and then slowly step out from behind the shrub and flash it's perfectly white feathers at the men. Then I see the man lower his wand and they continue walking along.

When I listened to the exerpt from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows I pictured a wide, deserted country road, lit only by the moon, which was full. When the two men apperared I imagined them in long, black cloaks. I pictured Snape as a thin, yet strong man with long, black hair and pale skin. Yaxley I pictured as a larger man with many wrinkles on his face, but again, still strong. When they turn into the drive way I visualize an unpaved road with tall hedges boardering it on either side. I also see a few weeping willows, and half-way down the lane I see a beautiful wrought iron gate with swirling patterns. At the end of the road I see A dark mansion and as the two men pass through the gates Malfoy's patronas, a white peacock comes into sight.

When I listened to this exerpt from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows" By: J.K. Rowling I pictured two very problomatic people, creeping trough a small alley way having no desire to be seen. They suceeded, because when you invision the alley you can tell it would hav no light, but the beams of the white moon. When you imagine the men you can see tall figures with edgy features, in long black robes. I could picture Severnus (Snape) as a pale, white man with dark long hair and a menecing strength to his limp body. Yaxley, I could see him as a large man with broad shoulders and much srength, but a elderly appearence. When the two started walking towards the driveway I could see a long country road again holding only the light of the moon, I can then picture "Brambles, and bushes lining the edge of the winding road, and then a pure milky white bird appears from the bushes, which is Malfoy's patronas. One of the men points his wand directly at the creature, and keep walking.

I pictured two men in black cloaks walking in a dark alleyway. I pictured that these men were alone and it was quiet. Then I pictured a snowy white peacock running around in spiny bushes. I thought that the man said the excerpt with a lot of expression. The author J.K Rowling did well with describing the setting, characters and situation without boring the reader.

I pictured two men walking down an allyway. But I also felt that the allyway is desserted. And when it said about the small plants called brambles. And with the fact that in the begining it described on how they had their wands pointed against each other it made it sound like they were being very caucios as if they are being hunted. Overall in my oppinion this piece of writing is ver well written and descrptiv.

I pictured two man walking down a deserted street in the moon light. I feel that when they were walking down the street the two man were very jumpy. I pictured that the street was very well kept with trees along the sides and the Malfoy's manor house loomed big against the sky. I think this excerpt was very well written.
