“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” has reportedly been leaked onto the internet before is worldwide release date. The latest and final edition of the Potter series is a heavily guarded secret with fans clamoring for information about the fate of the young boy wizard. The latest film, release last week, is running wild over the worldwide box office, is just adding more fuel to the already blazing fan base.
Meanwhile in internet forums, a war of words raged as to whether the version that had been posted was genuine.
“Yes its real, yes it works, yes its in a pdf. Have fun,” one comment on www.thepiratebay.org read.
Another user wasn’t so sure: “I’m going to have the burst the bubble on this being real. I was positive it was, until I found this on page 156: “Auntie Muriel, who seemed to be enjoying herself *hugely*, snapped her fingers for more champagne.” To my knowledge, the word ‘hugely’ does not exist. Surely, a book as anticipated as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows would have been edited multiple times.”
“Hugely” is a rather common British expression,” a rebuttal came back. “Nothing strange about it.”
This confirmed leak of genuine Potter material is the first time that any of the novels have found their way onto the net prior to a release date. Many fans can’t seem to wait until Friday night when Potter mania should be hitting on all cylinders. I expect to see half of the riders on my train Monday morning with this book in their hands.
