Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Posted in Books at 12:38 pm by Calico Jack

According to the BBC, that’s the title of the seventh and final Harry Potter book, which is supposed to come out next summer (although knowing Rowling’s penchant for delays, I wouldn’t place any money on it right now.) On first glance, I’m not really loving this title. Unlike Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix or Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, there isn’t anything here that will give plot-hungry fans much to discuss. I don’t ever remember reading about the Deathly Hallows in a previous book, although I’m not nearly as much of an uber-geek about Harry Potter as some are. If I’m wrong, I’m sure someone will correct me.

Between the final novel and the fifth movie, next summer should be quite enjoyable for Harry Potter fans. It’s hard to believe that this series which has shaped children’s reading habits for so long is now coming to an end. All good things…
