Tidbits

A few nice bits from here and there....

First a review of Deathly Hallows (kinda-sorta) by Stephen King.  I like reading what he has to say about J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter books.  As a super-famous author himself, he has a unique perspective, plus sometimes he says things I've thought myself.  For example:

"And so now the hurly-burly's done, the battle's lost and won — the Battle of Hogwarts, that is — and all the secrets are out of the Sorting Hat. Those who bet Harry Potter would die lost their money; the boy who lived turned out to be exactly that. And if you think that's a spoiler at this late date, you were never much of a Potter fan to begin with."

Also, a lovely interview with Evanna Lynch.  Can't you just see her before all the Harry-madness?  I imagine a creative, but kind of odd girl--not unlike Luna herself.  And then she becomes a world-famous actress, not for being someone else, but really just for being herself.  Can't you just see all the "mean girls" at her high school squirming now?

Lastly, a pre-Deathly Hallows interview with Daniel Radcliffe, which would be pretty unremarkable (that is to say, just like all the other interviews with Daniel) if not for a teensy bit at the end where he says, "Alan is the only one who seems to know what’s going to happen...."  Assuming he means "Alan" Rickman, I have to say I TOLD YOU SO!
