Hey, don't knock it! James Joyce wrote Ulysses that way.

Some very bright individuals figure that "Deathly Hallows" is a fancy way of saying Horcrux.

I am very much a perfectionist, so the thing I dislike most about Harry Potter is the fact that the books differ in size so much.

(They just started getting larger! And now, smaller again!)
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I was thinking that maybe Dumbeldore had a horcrux.

Old Dumbles didnt strike me as the calculated murdering type.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ooh! I'm looking forward to this one!

A bunch of people didn't like the ending to the last book, but I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see what this one is all about.

Is it still on track to be released this Summer?

Halfblood prince made me sad.

I mean, I expect endings like that from GRR Martin or someone, but this series started off so kiddie and it doesn't feel like the same series anymore to me. It used to be "oh what jolly fun" but now its all death and betrayal and...meaness...It seems to me the past two books have had a completely different feel to them. I'm not saying I dislike the new feel, it just doesn't seem to be targeting the same audience as the earlier books.
Dont look at me, I'm irrelevant!

The series started sucking after Goblet. I couldn't get through Phoneix.

Oh well, I can still remember the good ol' days of Azkhaban.  :'(

wow, can you say "Obsessive Compulsive"? (because i can't...Too many big words...)

yeah...I can't discuss Harry Potter because I allways forget what the latest book I read talked about after just a couple of weeks, so I have to re-read the whole series whenever a new book comes out...

Harry Potter with Rabies?

Yeah, Phoenix started out very crappily. But once you get past the first five million or so pages, it's actually pretty decent.

I mean, I expect endings like that from GRR Martin or someone, but this series started off so kiddie and it doesn't feel like the same series anymore to me. It used to be "oh what jolly fun" but now its all death and betrayal and...meaness...It seems to me the past two books have had a completely different feel to them.

I believe this is because the characters in the books are growing up. It wouldn't make sense to have them still dealing with the same things as they were when they were 11 or whatever.

Anyway, it's not as if Rowling is just making it up as she goes along. She'd basically written the entire story before starting on the first book, so presumably if it's getting a bit darker now, that's how it was always meant to be.

I always wanted a story about the "good guys" to just end in the
"bad guy" victory and be done with the story. I think after I finished the book, I'd be a little happier with it and say "Well, I didn't see that coming"

Harry Potter goes to the 'dark side' and book over.

or

Harry Potter goes to finish off voldemort... and dies. Book over.

Harry potter goes and kills voldemort but kill shimself in the process. Book over. Try to make any sequels now!

I don't know. I'd rather it be against the norm.

That last option is quite realistic actually. To be able to kill Voldemort he has to sacrifice himself.
