Harry Potter, Book 7: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (not Hollows)

Google News is citing over 383 articles about this topic already, but there is nothing wrong with posting #384.

The title for the “last” Harry Potter book has been revealed, it is: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

As of February 1st, you can now pre-order the standard version or deluxe version for delivery on July 21st:

Here is the Forbes article, which at least has well written coverage.

Rowling’s U.S. publisher, Scholastic (nasdaq: SCHL – news – people ), Inc., released a brief statement Thursday announcing the name of the world’s most anticipated children’s book, the finale to her phenomenally popular fantasy series.

No publication date or other details were offered. Rowling is still working on the book, she wrote on her Web site in an entry posted early Thursday.

“I’m now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more,” she wrote. “I don’t think anyone who has not been in a similar situation can possibly know how this feels: I am alternately elated and overwrought. I both want, and don’t want, to finish this book (don’t worry, I will.)”

You’ll notice I put the word “last” in quotations. That is because, while I like the Harry Potter series very much, they are anything but original in character development and plot. As a result, I also expect J.K. Rowling to follow the well-trod path of other series writers, who claim that a given book is the “final” one of the series, only to publish some new version of the story or characters years later, after a suitable break. It might be 10 years later, but it will happen.

I’m very excited to see if Book 7 resolves itself in the same way I think it will. Book 6 definitely followed the expected path, and sets up some very well-known character models for betrayal, defeat and victory. We’ll see what happens.

Update (12/23/06): I have changed the title to “Hallows”, since that seems to be the consensus, although the search for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows turns up a lot of news clippings as well. Thoughts?

Update (12/26/06): See my new post on how mis-spellings can help your popularity! It seems that my blog is a big hit with the people who want it to be “hollows”.

Update (02/01/07): See my new post on the release date for Harry Potter 7: July 21, 2007. There is also a link to pre-order the book for delivery on July 21st.

  1. i think thats fantastic news and i think the name might mean that harry encounters Voldemort at Godrics Hollow which in turn leads upto the name the deathly hollows !!!!!!!! great books jk rowling

    (^,^)

  2. hello i cant wait till the new book comes and im very excited they said that harry might die and i got a inside scoop hermione might die too i dont want her to die shes so pretty and i know harry likes her not that cho chang well i cant wait till the book comes jkrowling is a awsome writer i love her books and i love harry potter cause he is so cute i wish i could meet them.

  3. harry harry harry… keep fight harry, I’ll luv u so much although I am use your enemy nick but out of it, miss u so much….. muach

  4. I agree that their is no orignality in the potter series…That doesnt take away the joy of reading about magic etc. How I would like to goto a school where you can fly! just the thought is amazing!

    I dint like the last book- it was too convoluted. Hopin this one would be better!

  5. Guys, everywhere else I read it, the book is called ‘Harry Potter & the Deathly HALLOWS’…
    CNN, BBC…just google it…

  6. As an adult Harry Potter fan I am thrilled to know that book 7 is that much closer to being released. I certainly hope it is NOT the last book set in the whole Hogwart’s universe even if Ms Rowling is not the one who writes the books themselves.

    Happy Holidays

  7. popculturegeek, i googled it as u said to do and actually if u type in harry potter and the deathly hallows it comes up with a list of websites saying that is the title of the new book, however, if u type in harry potter and the deathly hollows it also comes up with with a list of websites saying that that is the title of the new book. So which is it hallows or hollows?

  8. i think JK ROLWLING is following the well trodden path of killing her protagonist such that the character cannot be used later on in different version after she has gone..

    I guess the harry potter series has been on of the greatest experinces of her life as well as the most harrowing.. with the whole world wondering and waiting for the next twist in the plot.

    The last book was great, although it brought a certain tinge of darkness and maturity to the book ( which was till the third book in the series nothing but fun and ful of magic),

    The last book i think is a great setup for the grand finale, which results in harry and voldmort both dying and order finally set up in the world..

    thats what i think anyway…

    cant wait for the book to come out though.. been waiting for it evre since i finished book six.

    .

  9. directusmens, I agree with the likelihood of JK Rowling killing off Harry in his heroic efforts to save the world from Voldemort. If it’s purely to prevent additional books from being written, however, it’s guaranteed to fail.

    The most obvious way to continue writing in this series, even assuming that Harry dies would be:
    – Writing a series of books about the same 7 years, but from other characters point of view (Dumbledore, Hermione, Ron, Snape, even Voldemort himself!)
    – Prequels about Harry’s father & mother in school, the original rise of Voldemort, the rise of Dumbledore, etc.
    – Follow on books about the rise of new evil, post-Harry, from Voldemort’s followers, or brand new villians and/or splits in the wizarding community.

    All of these approaches have been popular lately to add on to successful franchises. The real issue is how willing JK Rowling is to allow these type of works to take place – $1B is a big legal warchest if she really doesn’t want to see derivative works published.

  11. Scavella is right, in the hangman it says HALLOWS.
    Prhaps it refers to the horcruxes? or to the souls of all the inoccent people that died by the hand of Voldemort?

    @Adam Nash

    Killing Harry would be the most logical way of getting rid of the “Potter weight”, but if she does kill him she won’t be able to leave her house ever again, she’ll have children (and a few adults, me between them) yelling and throwing things at her. Killing him will most likely end up in a revolution.

    And I think she already has enough money to abandon Harry’s storyline… perhaps writing more things like the two little books and also giving away the copyrights…

  12. JK could kill off Harry but I think to placate the slightly crazier fans shell probaly do something like make him into a disabled ghost who teaches defence against the dark arts which is a character u cant really base a book around

  13. Thanks for your post. I found it so interesting that the final scenes of the last book have been fixed in JKR’s mind for over a dozen years. Of course, I anxiously await the final outcome. There’s some speculation that Snape is still one of the good guys–that he killed Dumbledore on Dumbledore’s orders—-that would be an interesting twist. Who knows? Though I certainly wouldn’t celebrate the killing off of Harry Potter, I’d do kinda appreciate “Thelma and Louise” endings. If Potter does die, then I’m sure it would be a sacrifice for the greater good—the main outcome is that evil will not reign supreme. I figure, at least, we’ll wind-up being surpised who is actually evil and who isn’t in the final book. I look forward to reading it!

  14. Harry’s scar bears a horcrux. Voldemort established a flux of power between Harry and himself, but he accidentally surged too much power to Harry, and perished in his attempt to destroy Harry(besides, there was ‘Love’, too). I suspect, like countless others, that in order to vanquish the Dark Lord, Harry will have to kill himself. However, there are two interesting routes the plot can go from there. Harry can either die, and be known as a martyer throughout the wizarding world, or…he could not have the spine to kill himself, and become an evil wizard himself. I actually had a dream about this. I saw Harry slay Voldemort, then try to kill himself. He could finish the curse, and Voldemort’s chilling voice invaded his thoughts…Harry slowly rose and slipped on his enemy’s black cloak. Then, he stormed into Hogwarts and burnt it to the ground. He did Avada Kadavra on Neville and his other ‘pals’, and cast Crucio on Ginny, taking pleasure in seeing her scream in agony. Pretty grim, huh? Well, that’s the way it should be.

  15. The_Prime_Evil,

    I hadn’t thought about it, but the idea that Harry’s scar is a horcrux could very well be the mechanism to take the ending to a pretty dark place. A classic need for the hero to martyr himself to save the world.

    I don’t think she’ll take Harry evil, although I was surprised a bit that she never used the scar to take Harry to a more dark place temporarily. In the earlier books, there was a stronger implication that part of Voldemort was captured/linked in the scar, and it seemed like an obvious play to have it somehow “affect Harry” in a sequence or two. I think I was expecting it in Book 5, but it didn’t happen.

    Treavor, Snape is definitely still one of the good guys. If he isn’t, well, it just becomes a run-of-the-mill betrayal, and it makes Dumbledore wrong to trust him. I don’t think it fits well with the character development to have Dumbledore be wrong.

  16. i thought harry may be the last horcrux at first, but harry was supposed to be the significant death used in order to create the next horcrux wasnt he? it would be a good and very heroic ending in my opinion but if you remember the prophecy ‘either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives’ if they both end up dead its a tad contradicting isnt it…?

    ooh and the note in the locket is initialed R.A.B

    Sirius Blacks Brothers initials… isnt he dead though?

  17. magic boots… yes, the initials likely come from Regulus A. Black and yes, he is dead, but that doesn’t mean that he couldn’t destroy the horcrux before getting killed… maybe the cause of death is the fact that he got near to Voldemort’s secret.

  18. This book is a luck 7 book 7 gunna be born the 7/7/7 of u catch my drift… but harry just my die so…… it a empty lucky so…

  19. dude this new book is going to be the best one i can tell and im a genius ok not really but the hollow is a cool name but i think harry is going to die when he fights voldemort and i think ron and hermione are going to get in a serious relationship

  20. Yo personally i think that harry is goona die and when that happens its gonna go all mission impossible on us and somethin in his head is gonna explode in his head and like the whole place is gonna just implode in the agonny of his death

  21. I don’t believe Jo will continue writing about Harry after book seven; I think she’s got loads of other stories she wants to share. But as you say, Adam, she might be tempted ten years from now, but I have a hard time believing that. Just as I have a hard time believing she’ll kill Harry, and that he’ll die because he’s a horcrux; it’s just a too obvious of an ending for it to be one that she’s been carrying around for years. But either way, whatever she does, I trust her to finish in the best way. Whichever way it is. [Mischief managed]

  22. I have to inform you, that R.A.B (Sirius’ dead brother) said that he will be dead before any1 can read this. He put the real horcrux at 12 Grimald Place (it says in the 5th book when they were cleaning up:”A heavy lockbox nobody could open.” Thats the Ravenclaw Horcux! Wake up guys. I think Snape is realy good, maybe he was actually a spy for Dumbledore, and told Dumbledore that the Death Eater’s are attacking(Book 6) and (for in book 7 they will find out more about when people turn into ghosts) Dumbledore says that there are worse things than death, he’ll rather Snape kill him than risk being tortured by Voldemort. THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE IS THE HERO OF BOOK 7!

  23. Harry Potter (i think) will train up his Occlumency, and he’ll have extreme powers by not letting Voldemort read his thoughts to know what spell he’s going to use… i think that Voldemort will destroy himself by winning the battle and using the Killing Curse (Avada Kadavra) on Harry’s scar (Harry destroys all the horcuxes except for 1, and he would rather get killed in a losing battle than hide and wait for Voldemort to come and kill him) and Voldemort falls dead when he uses the Killing Curse, because HARRY’S SCAR IS THE LAST HORCRUX! (Book 2:Dumbledore tells Harry about Voldemort sharing some of his powers when he tryed to kill Harry and only left a scar”) That explains a lot, I was reading every book for clues 10 times and found out that much, and even more, I’ll come back to this site later to tell more!

  24. harrys scar isnt a horcrux because voldemort didnt kill some1 and THEN SAY THE INCANTATION AS STRAIGHT AWAYHE MOVED TO KILL HARRY DUHHHHHHHHHHHH

  25. oh, yea :)) they said that on other forums… they don’t read the HP books a lot, just excited about the new one coming out, me finks

  26. oh, yea, just so you know, Harry is not going to go back in time and stop Dumbies death using a Time-Turner (i saw that on other forums) because they destroyed all of them in the ministry (Book 5). Someone says that Lupin and the OotP had a strange plan about Serius’ death… he may not be dead, maybe he’s half dead behind the veil in the MoM… Lupin was holding Harry back then, cause he would ruin the plan if he found Serius dying behind the veil, so he just let go… On other forums… they say that Harry will somehow speak with Serius in some way (by the help of Hermione’s great intelligence). Oh, yea, if you found that Harry will be healed by Fawkes, it’s none-scence because Fawkes died when Dumbledore died, you can be sure of Dumbledore dying with that (the one before last chapter indicates Fawkes singing and then dying).

  27. ok, lets go through the Horcruxes once more:
    7 in all:
    1 lost when he tried to kill Harry before all books
    1 destroyed in book 2 not even knowing it was a Horcrux (Tom Riddles Diary)
    1 destroyed by Dumbledore in book 6 (Marvolo Riddle’s Ring)
    1 in Naggini (not yet destroyed) although i can’t think of a way Harry can destroy Naggini, because Voldemort controls her
    1 in 12 Grimmald’s Place
    1 something of Hufflepuff
    1 not known

  28. guys this is like so ausome. i don’t think Harry s a horcrux cos no one kills (or attempts to kill something with part of your life in it DUHHHHHH.

  30. I LOVE the Harry Potter books. Im a really HUGE fan JKR your the BEST
    I was really sad when Sirius dies but i heard that he was still alive. YEAH

  31. ~ HARRY POOTER U ROCK~
    I CANT WAIT 4 BOOK NUMBER 7. I THINK HEMIONEE IS GONNA DIE. IVE READ ALL THE BOOKS MORE THAN ONCE AND THEY ALL SAID SNAPE WAS A GOOD GUY AND YET HE KILLED DUMBLDORE. BIG SURPRISE THERE LOL. I CRIED.
    WELL ILL KEEP IN TOUCH

  32. I beleve When Harry and Voldemort are going to kill each

    other in one big spell Ron & Hermione are going to tell the

    story. Harry asked Dumbledore If he could tell Ron and

    Hermione. and Dumbledore said yes but no one else.

  33. i think harry and ron will go back in time using timeturners to when voldemort attacks baby harry they watch his parents die and james is fighting with the griffendor sword but dies an voldemort takes i and en he goes to turn it in to a horcrux big harry attacks him nd he hits baby harry by mistake but then voldemort kills big harry makin him mortal again *that would explain how harry was the boy that lived* then ron finishes him off. When big harry dies baby harrys scar dissapears then Ron hears hagrid coming and goes to normal time with harrys body but in the end theres a harry with no scar. Its a bit patchy but i hope u get my drift…

  34. Another theory i have is that hermione will save the day using love because lily saved harry before using love but it might mean hemiones death

  35. i think the 7th book is going to be finished by a great sadness even tough it’s not because of harry’s death.its going to suprise us all as it did in the 6th book.i really can’t wait to read it.

  36. Yo whats up guys? I just had an awesome thought, what if Sirius was under poly juice potion as dumbledor? Someone else could have fallen behind the veil ya know? Then Harry wouldn’t have to see the death of Sirius twice. I bet Snape didn’t have a problem killing Sirius!!!!! HA THATS AWESOME! ok Also, Sirius’s brother isn’t dead. Ya know the guy that was stealing stuff from Sirius’s house? Ya thats him in diguise.
    I think the thought of time turning would be sweet, but can’t be over done.
    Also- I have this awesome idea that we should riot if the 7th book sucks! Ya, instead of Rodney King, we will avenge HARRY POTTER! ok so email me if this just sucks sirster007@yahoo.com

  37. I think I know how the story is going to end, and it is going to be a very sad ending for all y’all Harry Potter fans. Harry dies, so does the Dark Lord, Mr. Longbottom kills him. Thats what I think.

  38. i think that when Dumbledore was with Snape on the tower that Dumbledore told Snape to kill him through his mind ya well thats wat i think and harry isnt going to die trust me he has love on his side and read a paragragh in the end of the 4th book where it says that haary thought he say a gleam of triumph and ya thats because harry can love and voldemort doesnt

    and deathly hallows means where harrys parents lived and harrys going to visit there and then look for the horcruxes…whick harry is not one

  39. I think that harry dies but he dies with herminone as she might try and save Harry out of true love and surrendor with him. Ron and Nevil will try to stop voldemort with all sorts of spells and curses. O and the only reason I think Hermione dies as in all the other books Harry has a crush on her. Now Hermione realises and she tries to save him. Her last words to harry may be I love you Harry

  40. Hey everyone,

    I really love that this post has become a fun place to exchange ideas and guesses about Book 7. However, in order to keep it readable for new users who keep visiting this page (almost 100 per day), I’m editing the comments down just to ones that are serious theories and guesses about the book.

    I’m not trying to ruin the fun, just trying to make sure the page stays fun until July when the book comes out!

    Thanks.
    Adam

  41. wo! it was so much fun dealing with harrypotter
    until im surprised because i found out that theres a new book “the deahtly hollows” i hope that it will end fearly
    and lovely,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  42. i fink dat voldermort is an animagus and can turn into a basilisk and harry beats it but gets poisoned and theres no pheonix around to heal him.

    ps dione its deathly hallows

  43. Harry and Voldemort are going to die. Harry will realize he is the last horcrux and have Ron kill him and Voldemort, and Hermione will kill Snape and Ron and Hermione will snog (make out). and Malfoy will make out with me!!!

  44. What’s the significance of the number 7 throughout the whole series. the 7th tower and 7th stairwell in the Gryfindor Tower and the 7 years at Hogwarts and even splitting of the soul 7 times? if anyone knows please tell me. thanks

  45. I think that R.A.B stands 4 [Regulas A. Black] Sirius`s brother,remember book 5 its says sirius`s brother was a death eater an was killed because he was in 2 deep. I also believe that Remas lupin will be killed also, book 6 he was a spy for dumbledore,an also Harry,Ron and hermonie will not die in book7, Ron an hermonie will finally say they love each other because we all know they do,there just being childish.Harrys gonna kill Snape an Voldamort and the battle will take place at Hogworts because thats were Harry an Voldamort belong.

  46. Trey, we don’t know but we see your point with the 7 stuff. We never realized all the 7 coinsedences
    p.s do you like our theory aka the one above
    p.p.s you spelt Gryffindor wrong

  47. The_Prime_Evil, We loved your “precious entry” it was an okay theory but our is better so read it!! (Harry’s “pals” can’t die because they love each other(Ron and Hermione) and Neville can die we figured, but Ginny is not screaming in agony she’ll be lauging at all the unimportant people dying, Seamus can’t die either because he and Ron are the Hot guys that are unable to die!)

  48. ok i do like all of your theories. you all will think i’m crazy but i believe Snape is good. he was just bound by that unbreakable vow. cuz Dumbledore kinda let Snape kill him. As far as harry being the last Horcrux i’m not sure i’m 50-50 on that possibilty. but i do believe that Neville has a bigger part than we all think. If anyone can figure out that number 7 bit please let me know. Cuz J.K. Rowling was originally planning to release her book on 07/07/07 she has planned her whole series on that particular release date but now its changed and i dont know why.

    p.s. yeah i figured i spelled Gryffindor wrong but i only forgot an f.

  49. We don’t know either it was a good release date! Thanks for liking our theories they were awsome, we know, but Snape has to be evil, because he never stopped being a deatheater when he could have. and Snape helped Peter Pettigrew find out where James and Lily were hiding. And in the beginning of the Half Blood Prince he was talking to Malfoy’s mother and sister about why he never let Harry die in all of the other books where he or Voldemort had the perfect opportunity.

  50. frank jones you are awsome! we love the theories about the school and Ron and Hermione, if you read our theories you’ll see that we agree with you!

  51. I think ron and hermione will die because they will go in front of the dark lord while he is trying to kill harry but ron and hermione gaurd harry and they die. also really do not know if harry is the last horcrux. Its a great theory though!
    Harry will probally become the youngest headmaster ever!
    In all the books didnt they say there was 8 years at the school and there is only 7 books so that means harry cold die or he get out of hogwarts early and become the youngest headmaster. they should make thebooks when james and lily went to hogwarts. or they should make a book of harrys son or daughter going to school. (once harry gets older to have kids) thats all i think!

  52. bobby123, nice theory, but Professor Magonigal is the latest headmaster since Dumbledore died, and unless she dies the position of headmaster would most likely go to the next teacher in line, not to mention JK Rowling doesn’t want people to continue the books of the Harry Potter series so killing Harry would most likely be the best way for that to happen. (After all you can’t make a Harry Potter book without Harry) and it would be pretty hard to continue the series only with Ron and Hermione (who by the way can’t die) and any of Harry’s friends because unless she leaves the last book open to make an eigth book (i.e, Voldemort doesn’t die) than it would be pointless to continue the series. And if Harry does die he would be reunited with his parents.

  53. The reason they use a load of sevens is easy seven is the luckiest numbe like 13 is unlucky so its just sense (and JK rowlings engenious) that made it the most magical number

  54. Assuming Harry lives, my money is that Harry finally fills the hole that can’t be filled – a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor that lasts more than one year.

    – Adam

  55. Thats a good theory i kinda thought of that to but not the thought of him staying and being able to be there a year. oh yeah in last entry i put “the” and “books” together (sorry)

  56. dude, if you read the 6th book dumbledore teaches harry about horcux and voldemorts ans well. he will spend his seventh year searching for his horcuxes. infact, i think dumbledor not dead. he has a horcux

  57. No, Dumbledore would never use a Horcrux. It is not in his nature. He knows that all living things must die in their turn. That is the natural way of life.

    Also, who says that the way to survive the Avada Kadavera curse was to know love? Lilly and James Potter both knew love, hence little Harry. But they still died.

    Harry will search and find a way to locate the remaining Horcrux’s, Voldamort will find out and go after him and they will meet up in Godric’s Hollows. Where they will both be killed as a backlash of magical energy overwhelms them as a result of a horcrux being destroyed.

  58. Excuse me: Where they will both be killed as a backlash of magical energy overwhelms them as a result of the LAST horcrux being destroyed.

  59. I think that harry will create a spell that repels the avada kedavra and other powerful spells lige an invisible globe the is formed around him and that when aspell comes in cantact with it it will melt and dissapear . i also think harry will inherit like a spell book from dumbledore and that with it,ron and hermione will be like super powerful and they will start capturing death eater one by one,then harry finds snape?,you doon’t understand it was on dumbledores orders that i killed him.And with a look of pure loathe and hatrid in harry’s eyes (avada kedavra), Hermoine screams harry you just killed snape . A smile spreads across his face i have finally avenged dumbledores death now i will get revenge for the death of my mother and father.he walks out of the rom leaveng hermoine crying and ron with his mouth wide open with shock.!!!

  60. I do hope none of Harry’s best friends, as well as the rest of the Weasley Family, will die in The Deathly Hollows. It’s bad enough that Sirius and Dumbledore died, -huhuhu- how more if it’s Ron, Hermione, or Harry himself? What about Ron and Hermione’s blossoming love story?- I couldn’t bare the thought of it! And Harry and Ginny? But I do believe this is the where the real adventure starts. Book 7, no doubt about it, will involve the quest to find and destroy the three remaining horcruxes and then the final face-off with Voldemort’s main soul and our hero. The prospect of this adventure is really unnerving, yet all the same, fills me with the wildest excitement ever!!! Can’t wait for this last installment!!!

  62. Okay, for all of you who wanna know why the name is what it is its because of this…
    Deathly-synonym for deadly. Not really ’cause of death’ but ‘part IN death’ really…

    Hallows- A place of old saints or wizards

    This is what i found on a website, (I forget which), so it MAY not be right

  63. OH! and also 2 of the main characters definately will die. JKR said so. : ) I think Voldemort and Harry………BOTH will die. But i also think Ron will die. I seriously do not think Hermionie will die, but instead tell how Hermionie grew up without Harry and Ron and be successfull witch and publish a book or something about her life. Ya, I have an open mind about things and like seeing sad but kewl endings : )

  64. as for others that may die, more NOT important characters:

    Draco Malfoy- I think he will keep on with darkness even though Voldemort is dead and like…i dunno…think of Smeagle on the Lord of the Rings with the ring…i think something like that will happen to him

    Luna Lovegood- Definetely WILL NOT DIE! Don’t ask me, I don’t know. I just have a feeling she won’t

    Neville Longhbottem- Will not die. He could’ve been the ‘chosen one’ just as good as Harry. so i think she’ll leave one of the two alive…Neville.

    Professor Snape- I think he will die protecting Hermionie.

    R.J. Lupin- He…umm…he will not die but fly off with Buckbeack. That horse thing…

    Weasly Family- after Ron’s death they will move away.

    Hogwarts Teachers- all of them will close down Hogwarts for good and find new jobs.

    Well, there ya go. Its just my opinion so…ya…

  65. Cnt wait for it to be out. Wonder what will happen. I bet Harry will die. Anyways I hope Snape and Bellatrix die I hate them for killing Serious and Dumbledore. I hope Harry kills Voldemort.

  66. they came out with a pridiction book about what they think the 7th book is going to be about and i looked up on google and from what i understand harry is going to die1 i hope that i didn’t and they show what the 7th book is going to look like and they think that harry mother’s love protected from evil all of these years. the pridition book is at target in cudhay wi and if you by it their they will have a book mark and their would be a gift card that will reserve a book for you a week after the due date that is my thoughts of what is going to happen in the 7th boo of harry potter

  67. i think that voldemort will commit suicide because he wouldnt want to be killed by harry cuz it will make him feel inferior, also i think Harry will end up loving Ginny after the death of Voldemort and same with Ron and Hermione (i spelt wrong i kno). i think there might even be a proposal, and i think JK rowling is gonna let all houselves free no longer enslaved, and i think Harry will find a way to contact his parents and talk, thats all the theories i have thx for listening all i probably wont ever go bak to this site so u cant really like leave me messages just saying

  68. the voldemort dying this is only after almost all of his horocruxes happen, and i think once he dies the scar will disappear too.. just saying

  69. All you weirdos out there who think harry is a horkrux, you are VERY wrong. Harry cannont be a horcrux because of the prophecy, “neither can live while the other survives, and one must die at the hand of the other” If harry was a horkrux, why would voldemort want to kill him, he would be killing part of himself. DuHHHHHHHH!!!!!

  70. The only reason that Snape probably killed Dumbledore was because he had an unbreakable vow with Narccisa that he would do it if Malfoy couldn’t, and if you break an unbreakable vow you die!!!

  71. OK this is my theory
    I think that close to the end of the book harry, ron, ginny and hermione will finally catch up to voldemort. I think a huge battle will go on and it will be the death eaters and voldemort against the order of the pheonix, harry, ron, ginny, and hermione. Harry of course will be trying to get at voldemort. In his attempt he will be killed by Voldemort, and ron (always being the underdog) who was always Harry’s best friend will be so angry and will kill voldemort.
    I also don’t think Harry is a horrcrux because in the 4th book when harry was in the graveyard with voldemort, voldemort tried to KILL HIM! If harry was voldemorts horrcrux then he wouldn’t want to be killing a part of himself.

  72. i think that harry will not die…..after voldemort killed dumbledore harry swore revenge, so i dont think harry is a horcrux obviously and that harry will kill voldemort… and ron and hermione will get married and harry and ginny will get married. thats a happy enough ending…..we need a happy ending because in the last 2 books people die with bad endings

  73. i think ginny will kill voldemort….she will kill him because he will kill harry and ginny will want revenge…..also hermione and ron will get married….lupin and tonks will surely get married!…happy enough ending i think

  74. I have an idea of what one of the horcruxes are, though my theory may be a little unstable. First of all i think Harry already has found one of the horcruxes but has not realized it. It is the fake locket that he and Dumbledore found in the 6th book. I think that Regulus A. Black was put under the Imperious curse my Voldemort….so Regulus was forced to write that note sayin that he already had found the horcrux which i think is a lie. Voldemort made him write that because Voldemort wanted to cause a diversion. He didnt want anyone to find the real locket. I think he has the real locket with him or in a hiding place so filled with dark magic that only he himself could get to it. He wanted the fake unvaluable locket the horcrux making people think that the real locket was the real horcrux which would take their attention from the fake locket. Like Dumbledore said in the 6th book, “Voldemort liked to collect souvenirs for himself” so why would he want his great ancestors (Slytherin) locket be the real horcrux in case it was destroyed? He wouldnt want his great ancestors locket destroyed because it was of great value to Voldemort….it was one of his souvenirs. And that would mak the trickty diversion he wanted all along.

  75. all of ur saying are good.ade all of us know either voldemort or harry has to die.i think harry won’t let any of his friends come along with him but Ron and hermione follow him and help him with the main fight where only voldemort dies and harry comes back really wounded along with his friends, goes to st mungos,gets cured quite fast and marrys ginny and ron marrys hermione

    ps: u can write me on

  76. I think the book is called the deathly hollow because its referring to halloween where souls come together. Harry will probably defeat Voldermort (sorry he who must not be named) by getting all the hocruxes, or whatever its called, and become head of Hogwarts. Snape and Malfoy will turn good. Hermione and Ron will finally get together, might even get married, and Harrry might get back with Ginny. So it will be a happily ever after ending.

  77. i think the book is called the deadhy hollows because harry might skip school and try to defeat “he who must not be named” in the hollow because he killed his parents and then i think harry will die because thier is not a eigth book

  78. I know who dies in hp book 7 read on and find out . Also hagrid marry madam maxime and the finall horcruxes is the defence against the dark arts room in hogwarts (derrrrr thats why he put the curse on it)
    Hogwarts does reopen with a new head McGonagall and as head of griffindor, Lupin returns as D.A.D.A teacher, slughorn becomes head of slytherin and potions master and McGonnaggl teaches transfiguration. But as harry has to destroy all the horuxes he has to ruin the south side of hogwarts. The Final battle takes place at hogwarts were harry and ron, hermionie,lupin, the order, D.A, flitwick, Sprout, Hagrid, Slughorn, Madam Maxim, Hagrids brother. the weasleys, half of hogsmedge and a lot more fight L.V and the Death Eaters

  84. J.K.ROWLING I LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND I HOPE THAT THIS ONE IS EVEN BETTER CANT WAIT IM TRYING TO FIND SPOILERS SOMEWHERE ON THE INTERNET JUST SO I CAN GET EVEN MORE SIKED ABOUT THE BOOK. I JUST LOVE YOUR BOOKS AND I WISH THAT YOU WOULD KEEP THE SERIES GOING.

  85. know who dies in hp book 7 read on and find out . Also hagrid marry madam maxime and the finall horcruxes is the defence against the dark arts room in hogwarts (derrrrr thats why he put the curse on it)

  86. I have had this really weird though. Dumbledore did not give snape the D.A.D.A teacher post cause he knew it was cursed and wanted him to stay and become a nice guy. But he finally gave in and with terribal CONSERQUNCES. OMFG I AM SO KL LOL PEOPLE PLS WEITE BACK TA

  87. 4 some reason everyone is forgetting fred and george i think they will get attacked at the shop but survive and give harry voldemorts where abouts

  88. In book 7 it has to be Voldemort or either Harry or neville because in the order of phoniex they talk about the prophecy and “one must die for other to live ” and the prophecy is talking about harry and neville so i think it is based on the prophecy. i hope J.K Rowling doesn’t not stop writing harry potter because it will be very sad to see the story end in a awful way! Dumbledore is still alive will not living but in the headmaster office you see all the pictures of the head masters and they tell harry to be quite so ofcourse dumbledore has to be there in the last book! I do have a plot of my own but it sounds cheessy im going to say it if Voldemort does die all the people who he has killed will come back to life!! hehe if you wish to email me with your plot plz do on airdrepresents@hotmail.com
    and with these hocruxes i think there is one in harry !! hehe cause voldemort gave him that scar hehe i have no clue but thats what i think!

  89. I would like to think that the sorting hat is one of the hocruxes// also, in book 5 if you remember, they found the locket at the black’s residence, it was thrown in the trash and picked up by kreacher// RAB is Sirius’ brother : regalus. I dont want Harry killed though, isnt that the idea? The whole good vs evil with good always winning in the end?

  90. Juat to tell you: the unknown relic of ravenclaw or griffindor: Godrick Gryffindor has two at hogwarts: the sorting hat and the sword

  91. know who dies in hp book 7 read on and find out . Also hagrid marry madam maxime and the finall horcruxes is the defence against the dark arts room in hogwarts (derrrrr thats why he put the curse on it)

  92. No, i Think that in the final battle between good and evil, snape gives his life to save Harry’s and then Harry uses the Avdar Kedavra curse to kill Lord Voldomort. The seventh book is going to be Wicked!!!!!!!

  93. ron=hot i liked your therry( yes i’m a bad speller) how ron will have to kill harry…. i’m 75-25 on that one.

  94. The book release will be in three days. What do you think, will Harry die? In a new poll of 1,373 U.S. adults nearly half or 47 percent did not think our hero would die in the last book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” This new poll reflects the same outcome as one recently conducted on HPANA with over 100,000 votes.

  96. Honestly, I never once showed interest for the Harry Potter books until my friend insisted I read them. So, I decided I wanted to read all the books before I saw the Fifth movie. I then read all 6 books and half of the seventh in a month. Most reading I have ever done. I loved every single book and so far am enjoying the seventh. I do hope Harry doesn’t die and that the books are continued until Hopefully, Harry becomes just as great of a wizard as Dumbledore once was. These books are tear-jerking and suspenseful and I think that is what makes them so enjoyable. So, yes, I do hope the story continues for as long as ever. The movies don’t need to though they aren’t as near as good as the books. They leave too much interesting things out. Harry should definately defeat Lord Voldemort with his closest friends still by his side. The whole friends-would-do-anything-for-eachother thing makes the story very uplifting. Also, what kind of kid could seriously go through losing so many people so close to him…whether or not they are a character from a book. I know I couldn’t.

  97. Also, I wish for Hermione to get with Ron because, honestly, this is getting like a soap opera between them haha and Harry ,of course, with Ginny:D. All happily ever after!!

  98. Will there be an encyclopedoa of harry potter, i want to know please can some one tell me if they know much appreciated.

  99. oh…………harry I LOVE YOU1000x YOU are very very tallent you handsome and a good man I ONLY SAID IT HE..REALLY YOU ARE MY IDOL .

  100. I love Harry Potter! I expesley love the six and seventh books of Harry Potter. I woch the moives too I sortive think the 5th moive was a little disapointing I mean why did they even rate it PG-13 it’s not even scary. Did you know that the 6 moive comes out in November and the 7 moive comes out in 4 years what am I spost to do for 4 years!?
