I dunno, I didn't like the last title, either.
Ah well. First time I've learned news like this from my flist instead of it hitting F_W like a ton of bricks. Is it time to break out my "The wank is here, I'll bring tea" icon yet?
It may be. ;)
And what's F_W?
Harry Potter and the Heir of Slytherin would have been better, but that's really what this whole mess has been about since book 1.
Good point. ;) I would have far preferred that, and I think it makes more sense... because that is the whole battle. And this is the final battle, isn't it? What about Harry Potter and the Final Battle?
As long as the book's good, I don't mind the title.
Yeah. Me too. I gotta be honest though, I shouldn't judge a book by it's title, but I'm concerned about the quality of the book if that's the best title she could come up with for it.
Definitely would have changed the title, seems like a poor choice. I don't think context will help me appreciate the title, either. My favorite thus far has been HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban... but none of the titles have been great.
Well, the books have been good,though. Even if the titles weren't awesome. Let's hope that tradition continues.
=0!!!! new harry potter!!! woo!
lol! Yes. Woo, indeed. ;) I am excited. I'm just not loving the title.
it doesn't really match.
it has DEATH in it, the christian groups are going to love making fun of this one.
about her writing, she HAS gotten a lot better.
you know waht i think? i think taht she is gonna use those pictures. dumbledore may be dead, but he is in all those little chocolate frogs! and all the other dead people have pictures of them.
what do you think? people can travel between their pictures too... it would fit i think.
he might not even be dead... like in the sword of truth series, there is a death spell web thing that hides people... but.
Not usre. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
As a friend pointed out earlier today, 'hallow' isn't even a noun. How can a non-noun be plural anyway??
I love Harry Potter SOOOOOOOO much... but.... Deathly hallows? Saaaaaaaad.
Maybe the book will still rock some cock, though. It better!
That's what I'm hoping. *nod*
for a second i thought it was 'deathly hollows' but that makes it sound like harry's gonna be galivanting around with some group of terribly hollow people. dangerously hollow. no organs.
lol. I'm staritng to think it's a play on All Hallows Eve..
I dunno about that title, but I'm really excited! And I can't wait for the next movie, either...
BUT who ever wrote that AOL article... um
"In the mirror, you'll see a hallway. Click on the farthest doorknob and look for the Christmas tree. They click on the center of the door next to the mirror and a reef appears. Then click on the top of the mirror and you'll see a garland"
At first I saw "they" and got slightly confused, okay it's just an error, supposed to be "then," I guess... but "reef?!" I thought some coral would appear. Wreath, man. I'd hate to be bitchy, but it's an article and it should be, you know... edited and reread and all that.
lol. yeah, it really should be. Oh well.
I just think the title is... odd. I really don't give a crap about what it's called, as long as it's good. My friend about killed me when book 6 came out. We were wondering what would happen in the next one. I said I didn't care if they all died. Hence the urge to kill me. I was just depressed that it would be the last one. *cries* IT'S THE LAST ONE!!!
Yeah, it's definitely the last one and there will surely be some notable deaths. It can't be avoided, I don't think. Alas. As long as they don't kill Fred and George
I'm starting to wonder if it might be something to do with All Hallows. Cos...(and I just looked this up because I am that much of a geek...)
"...Perhaps people have been celebrating Bonfire Night early - it's not until next week, folks!.." <--that quote there in about the first ten pages or so tells you that James and Lily died around Halloween/All Hallows because Bonfire Night is early November. So, with that in mind the title isn't quite as lame.
I'm guessing it means the final showdown will take place 16 years after Voldemort killed his parents, and on Halloween. Which...will be interesting, especially if JKR works in the legend of the wall between 'spirit' and 'real' being thinner than usual. James/Lily/Sirius/Dumbledore/whoever might end up making a comeback. Kinda like the Backstreet Boys, except actually cool.
Good girl. :) We're on the same train of thought here. I've been mentioning things liek that all over communities. We shall see. That's the only time I've really seen Hallow pluralized, you know? Otherwise it's like hallowed, consecrated ground, oroneof the many other options people have put forth. We'll see what happens. :)
