T Nation

Harry Potter 7 Release Date!

July 21st, 2007 I shall be reading (and probably finishing) the last book in the series. Yes this is probably “lame”, but I’ve been waiting for this book for over a year now.

Presales started today on amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. at 40% off.

People are still getting excited over this children’s book?

They’re not children’s books anymore. Volumes 1-3 had a kiddie theme to them, but starting with volume 4 the story has gotten much more serious.

Guys, this is Testosterone Nation.

Harry Potter, seriously.

I mean SERIOUSLY.

Top Sixteen Selling Books of All Time:

  1. The Bible

  4. The Quran
  5. Pilgrim’s Progress
  6. Foxe’s Book of Martyrs
  7. Book of Mormon

  9. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  10. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Even if you think it’s ‘just a kid’s book’. It’s way too big to just pretend it doesn’t exist. I mean c’mon, for every Quran lying around anywhere, there are two Harry Potter books.

A story of a boy who’s parents are murdered who must eventually use the abilities he’s learned/developed to vanquish the one who murdered them.

Yeah, not T-Nation worthy at all.

dude, everytime i stumble upon your avatar I get horny.

As far as the Harry Potter series go I’ve read the first five.

Anybody that’s into reading will enjoy these books. It’s usually those who barely read that scoff at what they think these books represent.

Rowling’s writing isn’t so hot, IMO, and her character development lacks depth (as most of it takes place “magically” in between books due to events at the end of the last book), but she has an amazing ability to entertain.

Great stories, good plot, good characters, good stuff.

And I share my birthday with both her, and her character, Harry Potter.

I for one am looking foward to this book. Yes it does lack char depth but it is very good.

I agree with this. I love the stories but the writing is atrocious.
