Peter: Hi Gabriel! Did you read the ‘Harry Potter’ book that I gave you?

Gabriel: Hi Peter! Yes, I’ve just finished it.. I really enjoyed it. It had a really unexpected twist at the middle!

Gabriel: I was very surprised...

Peter: Me too! And the battle at the end? What did you think of that?

Gabriel: It was so exciting! Harry was a real hero!
