Bloomsbury also announced today that the UK edition will be 608 pages long. As previously announced, the US version of the book will have 784 pages, making it longer than GOF. However, the UK page count makes DH shorter than the British GOF (which is 636 pages long). We presume this is due to an increased font size for the US version.

UPDATE: Arthur Levine, the US Potter editor, spoke this morning on the TODAY show about the American cover:

“We’re seeing Harry in a very interesting situation. Readers will find out exactly what the situation is.

“When I was reading it, I had both the excitement and the power of the book, and the plot, driving me forward. But I was also feeling a little sad. It’s the last time.”

When Levine admitted he “sobbed and sobbed” while reading Deathly Hallows, he was asked the following:

“That means someone we like dies, doesn’t it?”

“Well, it means it is a very, very emotional book,” he responded.
