to the End...
The Final Book draws the
series to a close
Well folks, it’s here.
After over ten years of waiting, the answer to the
‘end’ will arrive on July 21st, 2007.
There is nothing more that can be said for those who have been
following the adventures of Harry Potter from day one. With the
publication of book seven, Harry
Potter and the Deathly Hallows,
what has been known as the ‘Harry Potter craze’
will finally have a definitive ending.
Nothing specific has been released about the book, though various
international book publishers have been allowing audiences to speculate
for weeks on the answers to some of the book’s greatest
mysteries: is Snape really evil? What are the Deathly Hallows? Will
Because of the nature of Deathly
Hallows - being the last book - nothing
has been revealed that answers these questions, save for the various
international book covers. Each one reveals a little about the contents
of the book, but not much. Like the artists who created them, the book
covers sit silently, teasing us with few answers.
Security surrounding the book’s release date is extremely
tight; booksellers themselves have gone so far as to ask store
employees to sign waivers and contracts binding them to silence until
July 21st. Everyone is taking extreme measures to see to it that
nothing is spoiled for the avid fan until they have their own copy in
And what of the fan? Most fans are eager for the book –
tempered by the Order of the
Phoenix film that will come
in-between—but maybe not so much by the revelations the book
Though everyone is eager for the end, very few really want to find out
what it is. In part, because they fear the two deaths Rowling revealed
would occur, and, in part, because they don’t want to face
the ending of an epoch.
And yet, we can all be sure that millions will be lining up to get
their hands on the final book at 12:01 AM on July 21st, no matter where
in the world they are. For good or ill, with the series drawing to a
close, HP fans will all see the end together.
