Name of final Harry Potter book announced

NEW YORK (AP) -- We now have a title for Book VII: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

Rowling's U.S. publisher, Scholastic Inc., released a brief statement Thursday announcing the name of the world's most anticipated children's book, the finale to her phenomenally popular fantasy series.

No publication date or other details were offered. Rowling is still working on the book, she explained on her Web site in an entry posted early Thursday.

I still don't see the big deal about those books. The most overhyped propaganda campaign ever.

My predictions -

Snape's a hero in disguise
Snape and Hagrid are the two that die
Dumbledore has a horcrux of his own...in Fawks and is not truly dead

as for Aunt Petunia....she's probably Voldemort's sister or something

?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!

Rowling said she has been asked for years if she ever dreams she is in the boy wizard's world.

"The answer was 'no' until a few nights ago, when I had an epic dream in which I was, simultaneously, Harry and the narrator," she wrote.


Houston, we have a nutcase.  biggrin 

Put out a release date already!

I bet Harry will die. He and Voldy will both be killed, thus preventing any more books or spinoffs. Although I believe Snape is good, I think it would be awesome if he wasn't, that way, he could essentially be the most powerful wizard, more powerful than Voldy, because he tricked and killed Dumbledore. However, Dumbledore is not coming back.

Wahey, something that is worse than Lord of the Rings!

Rowling hinted that two main characters would die in the next book. It's a shame really. Only two?

I agree. While those books are good (I haven't read all of them), they aren't anything extraordinary. This whole series has become so hyped it has developed an almost cult-like following...and thats scary  scared

I havent read any of the books, and found myself questioning why the hell someone would bother reading all of them. Then I realised, hell I just wrapped up all of the Tom Clancy, Jack Ryan novels. So For those of you who are fans, enjoy.
Also for the record, last summer, my then GF was a big fan of them. She was reading the latest one where a character died. I kept telling her I heard it was the red headed kid in the movies. She would get so pissed at me. I sometimes wonder we arent together any more.

The red-headed character -- it's Harry's best friend, right? Besides Hermione (if she counts as a friend rather than girlfriend). So sad....

Yeah the boy, forgive me, I havent paid read a single page of any of the books. I did pay to go to the first movie when I was in Australia with a different girlfriend. I went in mostly for the air conditioning. I was asleep in 15minutes.

Thanks again. But as far as lack of spin, O'Reilly's got nothing on me. I'm the original nonspinning type o' guy. Really. I am.

OK, well despite me having a 6 month head start on you, you have managed to post 5x as many as I have and over double my RR, good work.

Thanks for your nice words. It's more like 4.04 times as many posts, though, and not quite five.

To be honest, a cult of Harry Potter fanatics is pretty damn low on the "dangerous cults" list.

I actually agree with your assessment. Hagrid is getting up there in years and given how Voldemort treats his "followers" (if you've read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince you know what I mean), both may not be around for the end of this last HP novel. I don't think Rowling wants to kill off Harry Potter in the end given the history of nasty reader response when a popular character gets killed (as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle experienced when he tried to kill off the fictional Sherlock Holmes character).

I saw all 4 movies. After Goblet of Fire I was hooked. So I went out ang bought all 6 books and read them in month and a half! I was so caught in and I don't read books like that either.

My favorite book hits theaters in July!!!The Order Of The Phoenix!!!

Im not sure if I like the ttle of the new book. Its not catching my attention like hte previous ones. But the title always serves a purpose as the main plot line of the books.

Bring on the release date!

By the way, someone on The Leaky Cauldron website's discussion forum said that the "hallows" in the title of the final Harry Potter novel may be referring to the Four Hallows of Arthurian legend. The Four Hallows are:

The Cup or Chalice
The Baton or Wand
The Sword or Dagger
The Coin, Disc or Pentacle

If you're read all six novels, this concept makes a LOT of sense, especially if you've read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

I think a lot of people who complain about Harry Potter forget that the books are actually for children and read them as though they are adult fiction. As childrens books they are great fun, although that said, the last one would have been better at half its length.

25 KaiGywer : Personally I don't see what's so special about these books, but the author obviously did it good. Like Bushpilot, I'm more of a Tom Clancy, Clive Cuss

27 KaiGywer : Good point
28 Bushpilot : I would agree as well. Its a shame you cant really read when you are exercising. In my neck of the woods, fitness in youth is taken a proverbial back
29 Post contains images Thepilot : I don't think the Palm Springs residents will appreciate that comment!
30 Mir : Examples? I agree that the quality of the writing is substandard, but I've always found the plots to be well-thought out and solid. -Mir
31 STLGph : since you're so keen...how is it going to end?
