The end of Harry Potter? by David Langford( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
The publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final Harry Potter novel, is probably the most eagerly anticipated event in the history of publishing. Even the smallest hints from author J.K. Rowling about what may happen to Harry and his friends have been major news stories. In The End of Harry Potter', David Langford--Potter fan and award-winning writer--delves into the many mysteries which remain unsolved. Is Albus Dumbledore really dead' Whose side is Severus Snape really on' What are the remaining horcruxes, where He Who Shall Not Be Named has stashed his soul' Does Harry bear a part of the Dark Lord's soul in his scar, and is this why he understands Parseltongue' J.K. Rowling is the only person who knows the answers to these questions. But in this highly entertaining book, Langford uses his deep knowledge of the six published Harry Potter novels to explore these and other mysteries, and to present a selection of possible outcomes. Only the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will lay these questions to rest, but in the meantime, fans of the series will find David Langford's book entertaining and thought-provoking, and a perfect way to refresh their memory of the first six books in readiness for the last.
