Re: Foul Language in DH

The foul language in DH wasn't actually that bad, considering that they are at war and they're teenagers. Realistically, they would have been swearing a lot more. Harry and co. are 17, and actually, Hermione is 18 in DH so even though it's a kids book, it's appropriate for the characters and setting.

Re: Foul Language in DH

I have been reading the HP books to my little brother, and we are now up to the fifth book. There is something about reading the books aloud that makes me want to censor it a bit. Like I'll say Heck or Darn instead of the other versions. When we finish book 5, I might hold off reading book 6 and 7 to him for a while, just because they are so much racier (for lack of a better word) than the previous 5. I mean, "thrashing around like a pair of eels"? Innapropriate language for children goes beyond swear words.

Re: Foul Language in DH

I did not even realize there was any "foul language". I mean, they are teenagers for god's sake!! teenagers swear all the time! plus, considering the pressure they are under, not swearing at all seems unbelievable.
Besides, I don't get it why some people are concerned about the swearing, considering the murders, torture, violence, slavery, racism all through the series. Swearing is just a minor thing next to Voldemort killing people to make horcruxes by splitting his soul, I think.
