Just Wild About Harry July 19, 2007
- Okay, love him or loathe him, you’d have to live under a rock not to know that J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, comes out on Saturday… Are you going to read it? Yes. Da. Oui. Si. Without question!
- If so, right away? Or just, you know, eventually, when you get around to it? Are you attending any of the midnight parties? There were plans to attend a midnight party; however, we learned earlier this week that a photographer will be at tonight’s rehearsal (our play opens next Thursday) and we may not get out of rehearsal until 11. That doesn’t give us much time to get into costume and across town to the party part. So probably not. However, we are going to get to the store before midnight to pick up our books as soon as possible–someone will go earlier in the day to get the wristband–and we’re going back to my house afterward to eat and read. I’ll have it read by dawn or shortly thereafter.
- If you’re not going to read it, why not? N/A
- And, for the record… what do you think? Will Harry survive the series? What are you most looking forward to? I do think Harry will survive the series. Of course, that could be my wishful thinking. I hope not, though. I sincerely hope he makes it and that he takes care of Voldemort in a most satisfactory fashion. I’m most looking forward to Voldemort realizing that there is a power greater than his, and it’s a power that he has looked down upon all his life.
It’s going to be bittersweet for me. I mean, I’m happy that at last I’ll have the answers. I’ll know what happens. But to know that I’m not going to have the long waits for the next installment, no more months of speculation, etc., honestly makes me sad. I’ve enjoyed that as much as I’ve enjoyed the books themselves.
