Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - SPOILERS AS OF PAGE 12!!!

I know we already have a Harry Potter topic going, but I thought since the release of Deathly Hallows is now less than a month away, we could use a topic purely for that book.  Please be sure to tag anything that could be remotely considered a spoiler clearly!

Sort of is such a harmless thing to say, it's just a filler, it doesn't really mean anything. But after certain things sort of means everything - like after "I love you" or "You're going to live."

A spoiler is one of those things where people say they've heard or they know what happens in a book or film that you haven't seen - I'm not reading any to do with HP, because I really don't want it ruined for me!

Did you see, the old DA thread was moved to the random section, so we'd better keep it strictly to books here!

I'm really looking forward to it! Have you all ordered your copies? I don't know who's going to die - apparently, though, a magazine recently published an article on how to cope with the deaths!
I can't believe its been 10 years since the 1st one was published - I can't imagine my life without HP any more!

I can't wait for my copy of Book 7!!
Fortunately it comes out after my exams........

Yeah it's funny, it's been 9 years since I first found out about the books. They were standing in then 9 year old cousin's bookshelf and I borrowed them from her. After that I got the whole set.

Okay, this is a POTENTIAL SPOILER.. potential because this guy claims to have hacked into the Bloomsbury site and apparently everyone has a copy of HP on their computers so he stole the info about the ending.. which he then published on some website.

I for one find the proposed ending rather boring and since this is not official nothing has been spoiled for me. If you want to find out what he said, click Ctrl/Strg+A on your keyboard and you'll be able to read the "hacker's" message (in English) in the middle of the page.

I'm a mugglenet regular too! I think I'll have day of mourning after the books end - though the movies are good too!

I go to Mugglenet just about every day.   It's really hard though because I keep wanting to read the spoilers but I'm trying to stay clear of them.

I'm not sure if I should take Saturday and Sunday off of work just to ensure that I can read the book in one go and then have a day to relax/mourn.  I'm both excited and nervous for the book....but I absolutely cannot wait.

I am looking forward to the book so much! I remember when the mailman brought Book 6 and I read it in one afternoon and one night. I couldn't stop - it was wonderful!!

I try to avoid spoilers as much as possible. When the book comes out I am going to avoid the internet as much as possible in case someone who reads quicker than me puts up the ending. I am getting it the day it comes out so I hopefully won't be too far behind but there will always be someone who finishes it quicker.

I'm doing the same thing.  I think it would be absolutely terrible to just be on the internet and have the ending ruined for me.   So I'm avoiding all tvs, computers, and magazines until I have finished the book.

I agree about those spoilers, but staying off the internet won't be a problem, I'll be too busy reading! I preordered my copy yesterday at last!!

You know what I have never read 'Harry Potter' Is it more for kids, cos I think 'LOTR' is more adult.

In my opinion the books can be read at all sorts of different levels. So whilst Rowling writes primarily for children I think, I find that there is always enough depth and enough of interest for me. I'd say they were books for children which adults can enjoy and get plenty out of.

As a 42-year-old self-confessed "Potterhead," I feel qualified to answer this.

J K Rowling designed the books to age along with the readers.  "Sorcerer's (Philosopher's) Stone" was written for an audience of 11-year-olds because the main characters were that age.  As the characters age, the stories are modified to reflect their increasing maturity.

As "Deathly Hallows" is being released, the characters are now 17, in their final year at Hogwarts (the wizard's school, in case you didn't know).  Characters are falling in love, getting married, and yes, dying.  At least one person dies in each book, with the exception of "Chamber Of Secrets."

I don't want to tell too much in case you decide to read them.  I borrowed the whole set from a friend not long after "Order Of The Phoenix" came out, just to see what all the fuss was about -- whether they really did teach witchcraft like a lot of people were saying.  Not only was this totally not true, I asked for my own set for Christmas, which will be completed when I receive my pre-ordered copy of "Deathly Hallows."

I also have all the DVDs and videogames, as well as a tiny figurine of each of the three main characters and a plush Hedwig (Harry's pet owl).
