Does Harry Potter Die ?

For Harry Potter fans, this is the burning question that will be answered in the latest and last installment of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series.

Most fans spent yesterday and today reading through the 608 page book, enthralled by the story of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Most are still reading.

But for those who can’t or won’t wait to read it for themselves, the reviews have already hit the stands. Not to mention over 130 reviews by readers at Amazon.com.

Complements of speed reading critics such as Anne Jones of the British tabloid The Sun and Kate Muir of the Times of London, you can find out the answers without turning a page. You have to ask, though, how much enjoyment can you get from reading a book in 47 minutes. In a rush to get to the end, wouldn’t you miss so much of the journey along the way ?

Personally, I’m going to forsake the reviews… and read the book.

But for anyone who wants to know the answer right now, here’s a couple of reviews to check out:

Must give props to my daughter, who got her book at midnight when we stopped in Emporia, Kansas on a road trip to Chicago.

She read all night while I blogged for a few hours alongside her in the hotel room. There's parental bonding for you.

Yes, she finished about 0930. I didn't ask and she didn't tell what happened -- I've gotta do my own work and read it! :)

Hi Sheila,

Hope you manage to read the book before someone tells you how it ends. With a book as popular as this, it's hard to avoid people who want to share what they think...

Happy reading....I won't be getting to it for at least a couple of months...by then the phenomena that was Harry Potter might have been replaced by something new...

Cheers,
Liz
