I’ve been both dreading, and impatiently awaiting, part 2 of The Deathly Hallows for a year. As the release date grew nearer, so did my mixed emotions. I’ve proudly read the HP series more times than I know. And I have been in love with the stories from day one. I know all the finite details, all the ins and outs of the characters and I would gladly walk in their world. I was thrilled by the idea of the HP theme park and revealed in the thought of actually being able to feel some of that magic in a real and tangible place. Now, as the story has finally come to an end, I feel a little heartbroken.
As large and popular as the HP franchise has become, there is still a very real and humble aspect to the story itself. The battle between good and evil, right and wrong in the face of adversity. At the heart of this series lies a very simple idea. An idea that is simply human.
JK Rowling is a master story-teller and she created one of the richest worlds I have ever had the pleasure to explore. I will miss it so much. Regardless of how many times I re-read HP, which I will continue to do, I know it won’t be the same. It seems a wide open hole will exist in the reading world without Rowling there to fill it.
Maybe I’ll get lucky and she’ll spin-off into Teddy’s world as she mentioned a few years ago… I can hope.
