dont judge me, i'm not a book....

looking at the book cover and title makes me a bit nervous. it's so dark and scarry.. not a good impression that good will win over evil. worse, there is a possiblity that this book can prove me wrong... i have always defended harry potter books... that it doesnt promote the devil and stuff since harry and "the order of the phoenix" always wins.. however after reading book 6 where dumbledor dies, parang hindi ata tama yun.. so i guess i have yet to determine that...

folen: lam mo, i think i reserved thru her also coz of gen.. my golly.. she's nowhere in sight? ano ito??? mahuhuli nanaman ako sa pagbili and then jologs people will tell me the ending again????!!!

pareserve ka na lang sa powerbooks. if you have the card pa you will get a discount.

i'm not really against a dark ending, as long as the story is well told. in the final analysis, it's just a story di ba? we have the power to determine to what extent we will be affected by this book.

treat it na lang as an intellectual discourse. let's see whether we will agree with j.k.rowling's logic as to the ending.

aileen: dats a good way of looking at it.. but then i dont wana waste my time with material such as these (if ever nga panalo yung dark side).. nakakapanghinayang lang..sigh..

watson said...

the cover art is indeed remarkably different from all the other books. Alam mo ba na mamamatay si ____ at si _____? Ako, di ko rin alam. hehe. Rowling said two characters will die.

As with the other books, I'm looking forward to this completion. At nang matapos na ang kahibangang ito. hehe

dessa girl said...

watson: balita ko nga namatay sila ________ at _________..

malapit na sir nick!!!!!!!!!!! waaaaaaa!!!!

Dessa
Just thought I'd let you know that what appeared (until yesterday) on my blog (Mybetterending.com) was not official cover art. It was a placeholder put out long ago. I've updated my page with one of the official covers that have come out since. There are several others as well, but I think you'll find this more in line with the previous books.
thanks

hi steven.. thanks for the info.. timing kasi i saw the actual cover yesterday at national bookstore.. and you're right.. it's more "scholasticish" like the previuos ones

zherwin said...

whatever the ending, just brace ourselves for something scary. di ako nagpareserved, because experience tells me that after two weeks of frenzy, the book will be available at a discounted price, i got my last two HP books at 20% discount three weeks-one month after the release.

to avoid any spoilers, just don't open any site or any forum that discusses harry potter or don't talk to anyone who already read the book. hehehe.

ako ayaw ko magbasa ng book. sumasali kasi yung imagination ko tapos hindi ko sinasadyang naiibia yung kwento. tapos matatawa nako tapos hindi ko na maalala yung nabasa ko.

Example:

Original Plot: Magician will save princess

Chua's Plot: Magician with three hands tapos nalaman niya na ampon lang pala siya kaya nag rebelde siya sa parents niya tapos nagkaron siya ng bestfriend na itlog tapos nagpunta na sila sa ibang planet tapos tapos na.



gets?
