Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows announced!

Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsOk, it is only the title, but it does sound pretty interesting! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was announced today as the seventh, and final, book in the series!

UPDATE III: Preorder it at Powell’s Books!

    I’m still betting that she kills our young harry - if she doesn’t she’ll be pestered into the next life about writing another one - then again I think she’d probably get a lot of backlash if she does kill him!
    It’s nice eagerly awaiting a book!

    I definitely think she is going to kill Harry. I think that is what the title alludes to. But I guess we shall see! She will definitely get lots of pissed off people writing to her if she does, but I think it is going to happy!

    Wait, Kristin, you can’t be serious!! It isn’t true!! Take it back you liar! Oh… wait…

    *evil smile* I think with #6 she was just getting started.

    Goodie! I don’t really care how the story ends. I just need the book to know how it ends for all the characters and for me as well.

    I won’t go berserk if she kills off Harry. I just want something to put a stop to the HP series. She has to do it neatly.

    I agree Julia! #7 is going to be intense!

    Haha, well I guess that is one way to look forward to the new book. She definitely has a lot of ground to cover and a lot of loose ends to tie up.

    If I remember 8th grade Ag class right, harrows are a plow of some sort.

    So clearly Harry becomes a farmer with haunted equipment which KILLS DUMBLEDORE!

    Pure genius. If am am not mistaken, and I never am not mistaken, “Kristin Hoppe” is an anagram for “J.K. Rowling”. Coincidence? I think not.

    Ok, maybe not.

    Dumbledore lives!

    Oh, hallows, not harrows. My mistake. They sound the same to me.

    Apparently my disclaimer should have included more homonyms… well they aren’t really homonyms, but you know what I mean. Heh

    Do note that it is “Hallows” and not “Hollows” or “Harrows” or “Bellows” or “Fellows” … or “Jello” - distinctly different.

    Is saying “distinctly different” redundant?

    Hallows comes from the word Halloween.Nearly headless Nick the Gryffindor ghost died on halloween…

    Harry should be a much darker character in book 7 because he has lost everyone close to him-his parents,his Godfather sirius and his best friend Dumbledore.

    I think that Halloween actually came from the word Hallows and not the other way around… although I suppose that isn’t that important.

    I agree paul, I think it will have to be a pretty dark book. Should make for a pretty good read!

    I’m looking forward to seeing how she wraps things up. I have no illusions, though, that things will necessarily end nicely.
