Today, I will be reflecting on the third chapter of the book, which discusses what the author of our beloved series, J.K. Rowling, said about Book 7 before it was even published. I’ll be going through each of the points in the chapter to see if what JKR led us to believe actually occurred.

Looking back on MuggleNet’s Book 7 predictions from ten years ago, what did we get right? What did we get wrong? Where did we come very close to having it all put together?
Eight years ago today the the book that marked the end of an era made its way to bookstore shelves and into the hands of an eager generation of “Harry Potter” fans. We all remember where we were when we read “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” for the first time. For some of us it was directly following the release, while others waited a few years before coming to the end of the journey. My first time through the pages of the seventh volume in the “Harry Potter” series was the very second the clock struck twelve on July 21, 2007.
In a new interview, J.K. Rowling expresses her feelings on the final “Potter” book. She describes the writing of the final words as similar to “a bereavement.”
What is “Dark Magic?” What is a “Dark Wizard?” A careful reading of the first five “Harry Potter” books shows that J.K. Rowling uses the word “Dark” to mean two rather different things; I believe that the difference will play an important role in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and Book 7.
