Though not as nuts over Harry Potter as a lot of people seem to be, I must admit that I’ve liked the books. I have listened to volumes 1-6 on audiobook, and I intend to do the same for volume 7, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
There’s a lot of speculation about how (or if) the series will end, particularly whether Harry himself will make it out alive, and now word is out that JK Rowling cried while writing the later chapters of the book. Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the bespectacled young wizard in the movie adaptations, says he thinks Harry dies.
None of this, of course, is being bandied about to hype the book or the upcoming release of the latest Harry Potter film. Nor, for that matter, are any bloggers using it in hopes of scoring a hit or two on their Amazon affiliate links.
