Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 13 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 13 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsAs soon as the title was announced, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows went on pre-order sale at Amazon.co.uk (Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows). And it’s already at Number One in their book chart.

A book, length unknown, content unknown, price unknown, and release date unknown reaches Number One in the chart. Surely this must be a first? Also interesting to see that Amazon are charging £13.99 – oh, how we’ll laugh if JK Rowling outdoes herself and comes out with some oh-so-weighty tome that will cost a good £15.99 at retail… Amazon could lose an awful lot of money!

i think in last 7th series harry is going to die. the fight between harry and evil lord will be very horrible when harry destroyed all horcruxes. but last one may relate to sign on harry’s head.the main part of story is to finished each horocrux with the help of every best friend of Harry.so there are two teams of good and bad.but i wonder that in good team half blood prince is also involved to destroyed evil lord……

well,I have an opinion.I think enybody should read the book in this moments.If you read the book at once,when you finish,there will not be more to read about Harry,magic its lost.When you finish the book,there wont be more books about it,misteries would be lost.You will know now the secrets,there will not be anything else to keep as secret,lets just keep the secret until the day all the movies are published,when the movie is published there would be more action,misteries,and of course it would be more real.Lets be patient and wait the movie is published.I will wait until the last movie,I want to read the book but if I read it now,no more misteries,no more pressure to see the movie,if you read it there is not a reason for seeing the movie,keep the Harry Potter secret til the last of days.When the last movie is published,Ill be there in 1st line of the cinema.Waiting for secrets to be revealed.Please read this.The day you finish the book,there wont be enything else to read about Harry!!!!Theres not a problem if you look on internet and find out predictions about the movie,or some things that can make the movie more exciting,interesting.Please keep misteries and dont publish what happens in the movie,I want to keep it as a secret,for the last day.The day the last movie is published Ill be happy,all the secrets will be revealed but I will know I was patient and I keep misteries.Harry Potter is a great idea,brings me ilusions and misteries to me and to many other millions of boys and girls(even adults) of the world!!!!Thanks J.K.Rowling for this awesome idea,and continue having ideas that will trap all the hearts os the world.Bring me manny ilusions and fantasies!!!!AND 4 ALL THE HARRY POTTERS FANS,CONTINUE LIKE THAT,WITH DREAMS AND FANTASIES(AND BELIEVE IN GOD).Like that I go.A J.K.Rowling fan.BYE!!!!!!UNTIL NEXT J.K.ROWLING IDEA!!!!!BYE!!!!
