    We're really just following the cast as they get older at this point.

    There certainly does seem like a trend for authors to spin out their favourite characters to the bitter end!

    I wonder if we`ll see Harry Potter when he`s seventy?

    "I wonder if we`ll see Harry Potter when he`s seventy?"

    It will probably portray Harry suffering magic-arthritis and Alzheimer, in which he gradually forgets he is a wizard and will believe he is still living with the Dursley's.
    I would read that story anyway, though icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm a bit split on this. On one hand it would be cool to see how the character's have aged and doing a more adult oriented Potter could lead to some interesting developments. On the other hand though, it does seem as if she is doing this to get more out of the beloved franchise as her other books were frankly not all that well received,

    Well, I believe her new saga "The cuckoo's calling" did get very well received, only that she used the pen-name "Robert Galbraith".
    I guess it is kind of natural for some authors to return to their own fictional universe, since it is very personal for them.

    Harry potter is amazing and jk Rowling is unbelievably talented. If she want to create more novels based on the Harry potter series I'm all for it. I will read and watch every single one of them at least 3 times

    Thanks for sharing the link. I enjoyed reading it. Rowling is brilliant. I suspect this will all add up one day.

    I thought so as well until I tried to read " The Casual Vacancy" . It is unreadable so I'm thinking her Harry Potter series ( I read them all) was a fluke.

    How could seven awesome books be a fluke?

    " I thought so as well until I tried to read " The Casual Vacancy" . It is unreadable so I'm thinking her Harry Potter series ( I read them all) was a fluke "

    Authors may change their writing style as they experience other genres. In my opinion, Casual Vacancy was very good, maybe not the best, but it really sucked me into each character's point of view.

    Besides, she did very good with her latest "Cuckoo's calling", so she has proven to be a good quality writer ever since she wrote the first Harry Potter book.
