Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows---unofficial ebook

Hi friends, I just came across an unofficial(perhaps pirated) version of the book Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Though I don't support piracy, I couldn't stop my curiosity and had a look at its contents. The book had a lot of printing mistakes and it was incomplete (I think), but it was enough to provide most of the answers. This is one action packed book, in the beginning Harry persuaded Hagrid to take him to Godric's Hollow, where he encountered lots of Voldemort's Dementors....but was helped by Godric Griffindor's descendants living in the village and they happened to be friends of his parents. There was the first death during the wedding. It was Gabrielle, who was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange. Fred & George became the new members of The Order of the Phoenix, Harry denied to join as he had many secrets to conceal. Harry, initially didn't want to go back to Hogwarts but finally went as Draco Malfoy was sneaking in Hogwarts. Mcgonagall gave Harry a free reign at Hogwarts and he was to teach his juniors to DEFEND AGAINST THE DARK ARTS. It was Regulus Black (R.A.B.) who found the Horcrux with the help of the elf Kreacher. It was the same locket that Harry, Ron & Hermoine found in the book 5. Still I don't understand what's Snape upto. He keeps sneeking to Harry secretly and helping him to track down Bellatrix. He also confided to Harry that he Snape had been a good friend to his Mom since their Newt days, but Snape always hated James. Harry had a few encounters with Voldemort but no one was killed. Harry started making friendship with Malfoy and Malfoy also started developing regards for Hermoinie. It seems that Voldemort and Snape has a keen interest in Hermoinie and she was abducted. This was the end of the book, but how can the book end when either of Voldemort and Harry is alive. Further, the last chapter was no. 28. I think those who tried to copy the book missed the last few pages of the books. There were also sudden skips and typing mistakes in the middle, but I believe that the ebook was copied from the original Rowling's manuscripts. I have read her previous books and what I feel that it is her's. Do share your opinions.

I do think that you got a fake copy. I mean in book six on the roof, when Snape did that, Harry was really upset and tried to kill Snape. I don't think Harry would even think to talk to Snape after what he did. I think with all the hype about book seven someone was talented enough to write up they think should happen. My best bet is to compare it when the book is finally released.

you know, i read almost half of the fifth book in an e-book. and i'm really glad i was able to get hold of the correct one. i actually double checked when i finally got hold of a copy. heheh! most probably i would be doing the same for this seventh book. hahahah! eniweiz, i think you did got hold of a very unofficial and so incomplete copy. and i can't imagine Harry talking to Snape at all! even just look at him without doing anything to avenge what he (Snape) did to Dumbledore.. hmmm.. if you get hold of the complete and correct one, don't hessitate and send me a message containing the link, okay? thanks!
