Why isn’t there any indentation?

  It was the best evening of Harry’s life, better than winning at
Quidditch, or Christmas, or knocking out mountain trolls… he would
never, ever forget tonight.

Harry had almost forgotten that the exam results were still to come,
but come they did. To their great surprise, both he and Ron passed
with good marks; Hermione, of course, had the best grades of the first
years. Even Neville scraped through, his good Herbology mark making up
for his abysmal Potions one. They had hoped that Goyle, who was almost
as stupid as he was mean, might be thrown out, but he had passed, too.
It was a shame, but as Ron said, you couldn’t have everything in
(Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone)

There is no indentation, a space at the beginning of the second paragraph. Though there is a line skip between the first and second paragraph, why isn’t there the space in the second one. (I checked the British original, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, to find it also has no space at the beginning.)


It’s not 100% necessary to have indentation at the beginning of a new paragraph (It’s possibly dying)

Some people will argue about it but it’s still not needed.
