J.K. Rowling is finishing up plans for her final book in the Harry Potter story. Book #7 is suppose to be started sometime after the first of the year. The final book is yet untitled.

Anyone else a huge fan?

I predict much of the same - good story, and quality of writing that's decent enough to housetrain a pet on.

Admittedly, the sixth book had some flashes of skill interspersed in the mush, perhaps she's taken a few writing classes.

It's got kids all around the world to read books.

It might not be my cup of tea, but that achievement alone means I'll forgive the Potter books quite a lot.

A very valid point. But it seems a shame to let that good a story go to waste.

I'm not a professional writer. When J.K. Rowling can shoot an ILS down to minimums, then I'll stop commenting about her writing. But until then, I think it's fair to say that any comparion between us is ridiculous.

What a fallacious position.

I cannot paint, sculpt, or draw - but I think the works of Piet Mondrian suck.

I do not play the soprano saxophone, but I think Kenny G sucks.

As consumers, we are all critics. We have to be. Without good, there would be no bad. And after all, Mir is not a multi-million dollar writer, J.K. Rowling is. Why should he be challenged to do better if that's not what he does?

No way will she kill him off. The last book will probably introduce a college for witches or something of the sort opening up a new series of x books. And then he'll graduate from college, etc.

I might be wrong, but if she kills her golden goose then she's crazy.

Your literary review is laughable. When you figure out a story and can spin it off into that much fame and fortune, we'll all take that one for what it was worth...

I have heard the same thing.

Any ideas or rumors of the title of the last book?

From what I have read, she intends to never again write anymore novels concerning wizardry or magic. She might go off in an entirely different direction, or simply stop writing and retire early.

It's not as if she needs any more money...

there are all kinds of rumors like that floating around. Harry dies to kill off Voldemort, etc. etc.

it has been stated by Rowling herself that she HAS completed the ending of the series at least. now it's just a matter of her getting the rest of the story finished.

i predict the final book will not be published at LEAST until the very end of 2008 or 2009. i think she'll take her time with this one. and the final book will be the largest advance sale of any book in history.

Well, her film rights wouldn't be worth much then, would they? Can you imagine trying to market that plot line to a zillion children world wide?  Angry
