So the new Harry Potter book is available today. Cool, yes? Well, yeah, except that I won’t buy the American editions for reasons I won’t go into here.
Spoilers ahoy, don’t read on if you don’t want spoilers. OK? You have been warned! MAJOR SPOILER BELOW.
Anyway. I can hardly wait to read the new book – I’m sure it’ll be as long and sprawling as the last one but I heard that Sirius gets offed (from someone who has their copy and also dislikes him, so I’m sure it’s true) and that the crew Harry’s dad ran with back in his school days really were bullying jocks like I’ve figured for quite a while.
Am I the only one who really thinks Severus Snape wouldn’t have turned out so nasty and “horrible” if Potter the Elder and Sirius hadn’t been mean to him?
I wonder if Rowling also thinks so and will be going into that? Snape’s a good guy, he’s just misunderstood and bitter because he was treated so badly as a kid.
