The name for the seventh book of 'Harry Potter' series announced

It was yesterday (22-12-2006) night when I was watching the news in 'Headlines Today' I heard the news for which I had been waiting for months.

"The name for the seventh book of 'Harry Potter' series announced - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

This is the final book of J.K.Rowling's evertime hit 'Harry Potter' Series. There are speculations that she must kill Harry.

Thanks 'Headlines Today' to get me the news fresh.

Harry Potter - a wizard boy, whose parents were killed by the Dark Lord -Lord Voldemort- the most dangerous wizard ever lived, and whose name was frightened the whole wizards world. The wizards world called him "You know who" or He who must not be named". Harry Potter was the only one survived the Imperius Curse (Avada Kedavra).

Voldemort tried to kill Harry when he was only a kid of one year old. But Harry survived surprisingly with just a scar left on his forehead, and all the powers of Lord Voldemort gone.

As Harry's parents were killed by Voldemort, Albus Dumbledore -the headmaster for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- brought him to his uncle and aunt's possession. Harry's uncle and aunt both were Muggles (Non Magical People) and both were hated Potter family being wizards. Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and their son Dudley treated Harry in a sarcastic way. He lived his whole life in 'Private Drive' in the cupboard under the stairs of Dursley's home until he got his admission in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In his 10th birthday Rubeus Hagrid -the half jaint- brought him Diagon Alley to purchase his study materials and school essentials, even though his uncle and aunt tried their maximum to prevent him from joining the school. Hagrid gave him the ticket for Hogwarts express and left. It was from Hagrid he know about the wizards world and even the fact that he was himself a wizard!!!
With the help of a wizard family (Weasleys) he met at London railway station, he found the platform 'nine and three quarters' from where the Hogwarts Express departs every September 1 at 11am without fail.

In the Hogwarts Express he met his bosom friends Ron (Ronald Weasley) and Hermione Granger who help later his encounters with Lord Voldemort.

As the story develops through the six books we can see some similarities between Harry and Voldemort such as both were Half-Blood, orphans and Parselmouth (one who can speak snake's language).

The name announced book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' is the final of Harry Potter Series. Harry Potter fans all over the world awaits for the book eagerly as there is loads of rumors have already spread on this regard and people who love Harry looking forward longingly the release of seventh book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'.
