Thread: Release of Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince

  1. #1

    Default Release of Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince

    Hey Folks,
    I was wondering if any folks here queued overnight for the release of the book? Seems to me the craze has kinda died down slightly.

    The Scholastic version will hit shops here on 16th August.

    SPOILERS AHEAD!




    I was at Kinokuniya yesterday and saw the books all nicely stacked up at the exit. I flipped to the last few chapters and found out Rowling killed off Dumbledore in this book.

    Any Harry Potter fans surprised by this news?

    Regards,
    -Michelle-

    and what was your point for posting this? You should have at least put *spoiler* in your title. I don't read the HP series, but I would have been really pissed off if I did and saw your post

    So your message behind is, people must have a reason for posting a thread?

    >>who is the half-blood prince?
    Snape.

    Finished the book but found the plot a bit loose. But at least it has more actions than book 5, ie no longer so mysterious. Hope this is still the foundations for book 7, so for the final 4 horcuxes or whatever

    why must queue up? so many places have it and have so much stock.

    you can even pre-order and get it delivered to your house.

    If anyone had to queue up, there's a problem.

    In sg, its hard to motivate the general public to be highly motivated to purchase a product or service, think its due to the culture we have... the only sucessful marketing event til now is the hello kitty from macdonalds... really have to salute the marketing crew...

    Its still quite hard to presume at this juncture actually. J. K. Rowling once hinted that either Voldermort's Army get too powerful and kill off Harry (or someone else, as long as he dies), or Harry graduates and lives on.

    HP:4's movie is coming out on 18 November, HP:5 will probably be next year, and for the latest book, at least 3 years to go.

    Its those fans who wished to be the first to get the book, that would probably queue up. There are launching parties around, and freebies for the early-grabbers. I for one, got myself some freebies.
