According to my friend who actually started queueing outside Borders since 11pm and finished the book within the weekend, not only Snape is the HBP but also the traitor who killed Dumbledore.Originally Posted by Harry Potter
Sala, I think I said too much...
My friends and I are guessing that Rowling is writing herself to a corner, that's why she needs to start "killing off" her characters.
There are also talks that she may continue to write HP after the 7th book - stories about how life after Hogwarts. Wah lau, like that, she really risks of losing the HP appeal. But the $$$, so attractive, I won't be surprise if there are more books to come after the 7th.
