Rowling to kill at least two in final Potter book

Rowling to kill at least two in final Potter book

5 minutes ago

LONDON (Reuters) - Children's author
J.K. Rowling has revealed that at least two characters will die in the seventh and final installment of her bestselling
Harry Potter series, but was careful not to say who.

Children and adults are expected to rush and buy the final Harry Potter novel in their tens of millions when it is complete, and if the publication of the sixth book is anything to go by, secrecy surrounding the plot will be tight.

Rowling has already said that the final chapter of the seventh book was written long ago.

"The final chapter is hidden away, although it's now changed very slightly," she said in an interview broadcast on Monday on Britain's Channel 4. "One character got a reprieve, but I have to say two die that I didn't intend to die."

When asked to be more specific, she added: "No, I'm not going to commit myself, because I don't want the hate mail or anything else."

She did explain that she understood an author's desire to kill off the main character of a successful series.

"I've never been tempted to kill him (Harry) off before the end of book seven, because I always planned seven books and that's where I want to go.

"I can completely understand, however, the mentality of an author who thinks 'Well, I'm going to kill them off because that means there can be no non-author-written sequels ... so it will end with me, and after I'm dead and gone they won't be able to bring back the character'."

Rowling, 40, wrote the first Harry Potter adventure when she was an unemployed single mother, but has gone on to become one of the richest authors in history with a personal fortune estimated at more than $1 billion.

The Harry Potter series has sold an estimated 300 million copies worldwide.

That is not possible since the fifth movie is also coming out around the same time, I don't think that they would want to make such a big mistake by releasing the 5th movie and the seventh book around the same time.

I would think one of the deaths would be Voldemort (hopefully ) But she said that she didn't intend for them to die originally so that confuses me.

I hope it's not Harry or Hermione. Other than that, I don't care.

Why I got a feeling its Harry and Voldermort?

(remembers Neo and Smith's final confrontation in Matrix Revolutions... good vs evil, yin vs yang, positive vs negative, life vs anti-life...)
