About this deal

I collect unusual names; I’ve got them from maps (Snape and Dursley), saints (Hedwig) and war memorials (Lockhart).

For reasons of secrecy, translation on a given book could only start after it had been released in English, leading to a lag of several months before the translations were available. The script was released as a book at the time of the premiere, with a revised version following the next year. Again Rowling exceeded all expectations, smashing publishing records left and right, but no time to celebrate—it was on to book six. I know that I am anticipating what the style of the latest book will be in advance of actually seeing it, but really, I don't think I'm going out on a limb here.

Rowling herself has stated that the last chapter of the final book (in fact, the epilogue) was completed "in something like 1990".

I’ve never had any problem moving between fictional worlds, even if I’m working on them at the same time. By contrast, author Fay Weldon, while admitting that the series is "not what the poets hoped for", nevertheless goes on to say, "but this is not poetry, it is readable, saleable, everyday, useful prose". In this sense they are "in a direct line of descent from Thomas Hughes's Tom Brown's School Days and other Victorian and Edwardian novels of British public school life", though they are, as many note, more contemporary, grittier, darker, and more mature than the typical boarding school novel, addressing serious themes of death, love, loss, prejudice, coming-of-age, and the loss of innocence in a 1990s British setting. Harry, Ron and Hermione learn about the Deathly Hallows, legendary items that lead to mastery over death. As of February 2023 [update], the books have sold more than 600 million copies worldwide, making them the best-selling book series in history, and have been available in 85 languages.Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was published a year later in the UK on 8 July 1999 and in the US on 8 September 1999. By 24 June 2000, Rowling's novels had been on the list for 79 straight weeks; the first three novels were each on the hardcover best-seller list. This is a wonderful gift for fans of the Ha

Just three days after the film's release, production for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, also directed by Columbus, began and the film was released on 15 November 2002. A completely functioning full-scale replica of the Hogwarts Express was created for the Diagon Alley expansion, connecting King's Cross Station at Universal Studios to the Hogsmeade station at Islands of Adventure. I think I am going to have to save this post and come back to it when I need motivation and reassurance! His overall view of the series was negative – "the Potter saga was essentially patronising, conservative, highly derivative, dispiritingly nostalgic for a bygone Britain", and he speaks of "a pedestrian, ungrammatical prose style". Some of the translators hired to work on the books were well-known authors before their work on Harry Potter, such as Viktor Golyshev, who oversaw the Russian translation of the series' fifth book.This is reflected in Harry's self-doubts after learning his connections to Voldemort, such as Parseltongue; [46] and prominently in Snape's characterisation, which has been described as complex and multifaceted.
