Countdown to the Deathly Hallows
Some of you may have noticed I put a widget in the bottom right of the blog counting down to the next Harry Potter book and movie... well, it's true. Despite my finer literary tastes, I also enjoy J.K. Rowling's humorous storytelling. I've read every book so far, and seen every movie, but I'm a little bit rusty, so I'm thinking I'm going to go back and re-read the previous books while I have the chance. I'll write some brief reviews and post them here with my personal reflections.
This upcoming novel will be the 7th and final book in the series, and should feature Harry's ultimate confrontation with Voldemort. Keep in mind that (as the story goes), J.K. Rowling has had the last chapter of this book written since roughly book one. Seriously. She has apparently had it locked in a safe-deposit box, after repeated break-ins by crazed fans.
It still doesn't cease to amaze me that BOTH the new book and movie are going to be out the same month- I figure it's going to be a tidal wave of Harry Potter fever, so I'm going to get started now.
