Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I really, really hope it is much longer, just because I can't stand the thought of it all be over. So the longer the better. However I will probably read it none stop till it is done. But I suppose one good thing is the reread and analysis. I really thing this book will be so shocking it will blow my mind!

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I imagine it could be shorter than HBP, although I won't like that. It didn't seem to take her long to write it. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's just my opinion.

My favorite book was OotP, mostly because it was longer and so involved. Those are my kind of stories. But I voted 500-600 as my guess. I just can't picture her putting the answers to all the questions she left open at the end of book 6 in 600 pages.

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

To be honest, I would be really disappointed if the book is less than 800 pages. Because as Forte said, in a 600 page book, JKR cant answer even half of the questions we fans have. I expect her to at least answer the crucial ones. And for that, the book must be at least longer than HBP if not longer than OoTP.

Funny... that would be very funny actually.

I voted over 800. I just really want it to be long because A: I don't want it to end and B: I can't imagine her answering everything in less than 700.

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I want it to be over 800, but realistically it will probably be 600-700.

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I voted over 800 aswell, but i think its more wishful thinking more than anything else, but i really hope it is over 800 because like alot of other people have said there is alot to answer and i dont know how she will be able to do it in a shorter book than that

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I put 600-700.

It seems about right. Though I would love 800+ pages.

It didn't take her too awful long to write it but she did know exactly what she was going to do with the story so it could be possible it will be longer than we think!

Re: How long will Deathly Hallows be?

I would have voted 1000+ if it was an option, cuz I simply can't see her wrapping alllllllllllll the loose ends up in anything less. Anyone else got it pre-ordered at Amazon.com yet?
