About this deal

Represent your house with these journals featuring debossed covers, house pattern end pages and 200 pages of high quality ivory 120 gsm paper. She compared her mixed feelings to those expressed by Charles Dickens in the preface of the 1850 edition of David Copperfield, "a two-years' imaginative task". The launch was celebrated by an all-night book signing and reading at the Natural History Museum in London, which Rowling attended along with 1,700 guests chosen by ballot.

Rowling is the author of the enduringly popular, era-defining Harry Potter book series, as well as several stand-alone novels for adults and children, and a bestselling crime fiction series written under the pen name Robert Galbraith. Arthur Levine, US editor of the Harry Potter series, denied distributing any copies of Deathly Hallows in advance for press review, but two US papers published early reviews anyway.

But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss.

In June, 1997, Bloomsbury published Philosopher's Stone with an intial print run of only 1000 copies, 500 of which were distributed to libraries. The title of the book refers to three mythical objects featured in the story, collectively known as the " Deathly Hallows"—an unbeatable wand (the Elder Wand), a stone to bring the dead to life (the Resurrection Stone), and a cloak of invisibility.Draco, not Snape, had been the Elder Wand's master, having disarmed Dumbledore before Snape killed him. He summons Death Eaters to capture the trio in exchange for his daughter's freedom, but they escape. The Romanian version was released on 1 December 2007 using the title ( Harry Potter și Talismanele Morții). Running away from his dreaded relatives, Harry expects to be expelled from Hogwarts for his blatant flaunting of the rule not to use magic outside term time.

Harry's letters home to his family describe the conflict with a poignant immediacy, even 90+ years on, detailing everything from the action in battle to the often amusing incidents of life amongst his comrades. And when pushed for favourites, Prisoner of Azkaban is her favourite Harry Potter book, if not among all the books she has read. Characters from The Knight Bus, Professor Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew come off are much different than how the movie portrays them. Rowling toured the US in October 2007, where another event was held at Carnegie Hall in New York City with tickets allocated by sweepstake.A film adaptation of the novel was released in two parts: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in November 2010 and Part 2 in July 2011. In July 2007, Rowling said that she wants to dedicate "lots" of her time to her family, but is currently "sort of writing two things", one for children and the other for adults. Meanwhile, many allies die during Voldemort's assault, including Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, and Fred Weasley.

When Harry visits his parents' grave, the biblical reference "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death" ( 1 Corinthians 15:26) is inscribed on the grave. K. Rowling also wrote three short companion volumes for charity: Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, in aid of Comic Relief, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard, in aid of her international children’s charity, Lumos.Standard - À partir de €4,95 - GRATUIT au-delà de €49,95 (selon le pays) - Votre commande devrait arriver 5 à 10 jours ouvrables après son expédition. These gorgeous editions of Harry Potter are filled with enchanting illustrations from MinaLima, the design duo behind the visual style of the Harry Potter films. K. Rowling has received many other awards and honours, including France’s Legion d’Honneur, Spain’s Prince of Asturias Award and Denmark’s Hans Christian Andersen Award. The introduction of The Dementors reads as everyone’s worst nightmare come true, with the presence alone tormenting Harry with the sound of his dying mothers screams.
