I know this might sound silly, but I was wondering if anyone out there is going to feel a little depressed over the fact that this upcoming Harry Potter book is going to be the absolute last? I think anyone who is a fan of the books has gotten so involved with the story line and the characters that it almost seems depressing that this is it..the end of it all

I know I am. I love the series so much!!! I just started the first book again so that they're all fresh in my mind for when the last one does come out :( The only time I really have to read is at work...so that's why I started them now. I just get so excited when I read them. I love entering that world...it's so amazing. I'm both depressed by it being the last book. But I also very much reading another chapter in young Harry's life.

You just gave me a brilliant idea--LOL--it has been awhile since I read the books myself--it amazes me how some people read these books over and over agan--similar in a way to Lord of The Ring fans--when I went to see the last HP movie, Goblet of fire, there was a couple with their young daughter, say maybe ten years old--she was very busy telling her parents the plot line of the story--anyway the brilliant idea?? It's late my bedtime but I always read before I go to sleep--and I swear, I'm going to pull out that first HP book, and start re-reading them all over again--so I should be done in time to be finished by the time the next book comes out-- ;-)

You are very welcome for the brilliant idea - lol! I am enjoying my re-read. I hope you enjoy yours. My best friend who I went to Goblet with - went that weekend with her kids and her 11 year old came out ranting the exact same things I was she said.

I know what you mean. I am looking forward to it but I hope I'm not disappointed in it. I am worried it won't meet up to my expectations of it and then I'll be really bummed out. Of course when the series ends it will be over but still a part of us and if we can it will always be a good friend we can revisit. It's going to depend a lot on what is written in that last book. There is a lot of build up for it and I just hope it doesn't let us down.

I somwhow sense J K Rowling herself might be suffering from a bit of anxiety. Here she is one of the most popular authors of all time, and this is it, this is THE final book--so I'm sure she's wondering too, just how her last book will be received

P.S. I felt the same way about Tolkiens "Rings". Thank goodness we still have the rest of the movies to go and somewhere out there another fabulous author with another wonderful series!

I know what you mean about Lord Of The Rings--the movies anyway--I don't know if I cried at the end of Return of The King because Frodo was leaving or sad and depressed with the realization that there weren't going to be any more movies-- just started a discussion about these books by Erin Hunter--her Warrior series---its all about cats, and I don't think the author is going to run out of ideas too soon either.

Just as a by the way susieq223--if you want to read a good series of children's books, read the Warrior series by Erin Hunter--it just happens to be all about cats which would be up you're alley--uh, no pun intended??

Well at least we do have a few more movies to look forward to--but it'll be REALLY depressing when they're over with too! But hey, we can switch over since I'm guessing director Andrew Adamson is going to do all the Chronicles of Narnia books as movies--so there are only six more of those to look forward too--LOL

Depends how Rowling ends it honestly. I didn't really want Harry Potter to go on forever honestly..I DO like the series..but I just dunno about the idea of it going on and on. She's a fantastic writer though, so I'm sure she'll end it awesomely. I will miss looking forward to "the new harry potter" every year or so though. It's been really fun and entertaining..but I've been waiting to see how it ends..and so now we'll see. Ah well..but that's me lol. ^_^ I write stories too..I enjoy the entire process of the plot..but my favorites are the endings -- especially endings which aren't that cardboard cut out crap alot of stories have ended with over the last thirty years or so. Endings tell me if I was anywhere near close with the speculations -- and I think it's very rewarding and makes up for the fact that there will be no more new books.

I am, because I think the characters are awesome, especially the girls. Hermione is no wimp! I will be sad to see them all go. I hope J.K. changes her mind and that's us revisit her universe someday.

Count me in as one of the depressed. I look so foward to every new book, and movie release. It's just one of those things that don't matter either way that you can just look foward to. I know that doesn't make much sense but. I love Harry Potter

I am not sure if depressed is the word. I know I will feel like something is missing when this series is finally over. I don't think that all of the questions about this series will ever be answered and who knows maybe eventually the author will do a question and answer book about all the questions she receives after the 7th book has been read. We do have two more movies to look forward to after the one that is being released in July. I don't think Harry will be forgotten about anytime soon.

I always get depressed when I come to the end of a series of books. Since Harry Potter has had so many in the series, I think I will feel like I'm losing a bunch of friends. Hopefully the ending will be a happy one; that will help a little.

Absolutely. I was just talking about this with my friend last night. This is the last book of the series. It's the end of an era. How many other books do you know of where bookstores will open at midnight just to sell it, and where people will line up for hours for it? While I'm excited to finally find out what happens to Harry, I'm sad that it will all be over. I've given over 7 years of my life to this book. I still remember my reaction when I read the first book, and I remember the first time I read each book. I can't believe it's all going to be ending.

I will be sad when the series is over. I love the characters so much! Fortunately there are a lot of fan-fiction stories written about the characters too, and many of them are quite good. They cannot be sold (obviously) but the stories can be hunted down if you talk to enough HP fans online. That's the only think that helps me not go crazy with the long wait in between books.

I know what you mean and sympathise. I'm such a big fan and I've enjoyed them all so much - it's going to be so sad to know it'll all be over and there won't be any more to look forward to. It's such a strange phenomenon that people have become so involved in the characters' lives.
