J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue

J.K. Rowling has announced in a new interview with that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose. She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot more detailed," but now that Book 7 is in our hands, J.K. no longer has to hold back any information about Harry Potter, and has now given us a lot of new details about the story and the characters.

Goff Morgan from Wales, UK-

The one JK mentioned who manages to do magic late in life was Dudley. Sure, he didn't literally did magic. But he made "magic" by being suddenly sweet and appreciative to his cousin, Harry.

And I still couldn't get over why and how Fred and Regulus Black d.. It's just so sad..

I loved, the books.
All of them were great, the thing that appealed to me the most, was that when Snape d, he was looking into Lilly's eyes (Harry's eyes). I loved the epilogue, sure it sparked a lot of questions, but now fans are writing more to the epilogue. Just one question, who was the muggle that used magic?
loved the book, be buying the Encyclopedia when it comes out.

No prequel. It devalue the original series like the new Star Wars movies did to the original three. Sure it explained some things and Yoda had a lightsaber but, in the end, they took away from the mystique of the original movies.

Also... Hagrid for Headmaster!

I'd like to read more about Harry and Draco. I think they can forgive eachother, that even their children can get along, if Draco and Harry make it up to eachother. After all, Harry, Ron and Hermione saved Draco and Goyle's lives and Draco's mother sort of saved Harry's. Does anybody else think that they can forgive eachother, and maybe even get "friends".

I suspect the person who did magic later in life was Crabbe. In six previous books he can hardly even tie his shoes, but in this one, not only does he conjur up a huge fire, but it just happens to be the only kind of fire that can destroy a horcrux!

I can't belive there are some people out there that don't realise the significance of the epilogue!

I believe it was really to show that the main characters could get on with their lives despite the traumatic experiences they had been through, Malfoy being mentioned as well despite their sibling rivalry. I would have liked to know how George got on without Fred but you don't get everything you wish for!

Also I can't believe some people think Albus Severus is a bad name! He named him after Hogwarts greatest headmaster and Professor Snape as the memories he saw in the pensieve made Harry gain so much respect for Snape and all he had to put up with.

Snape only ever disliked Harry because he was so much like James but Harry always had Lily's eyes so Snape looking into Harry's eyes gave him peace I believe.

I really looked forward to JK telling everything in the ending. Must say I was a little disappointed. I want to know what happened to everyone! And by everyone I mean the Weasleys (like how George handled being the surviving twin), Lavender, Parvati, Ernie, Seamus, all of the Order members, the teachers (why couldn't McGanagall be principal? she rocked!), the Malfoy family, Mafalda Hopkirk, Fudge... Everyone!

Loved the last book! Can we have "Hogwarts: A History" now?

Posted by Paul from Wellington, NZ on July 29, 2007 2:33 PM

I think it's best that we leave the book's ending at that, considering that this is a CHILDREN'S BOOK!

I would like to keep guessing and
use my imagination.

Fantastic way to end the series if you ask me. Hats off to JK Rowling!
