The Final Countdown

It has begun...the final countdown to the final showdown between love and hate... between friendship and ambition...between sacrifice and selfishness....between Harry and Voldermort. In a few hours the final outcome will be known. Damn those are circulating PDF files of what is supposed to be the novel and damn that Bengali channel which is broadcasting outcomes of the "book" as headlines !!

There is nothing to beat the feeling of holding the thick book in your hands and eagerly turning the pages to see what happens next. I plan to bunk work on Monday if I haven't finished the book by then.

Cynics may say that I am the victim of a well-orchestrated hype - so be it. I am enjoying these last few hours of pure almost child-like anticipation...a few more hours and the magic will be over...till then I am going to make the most of it.

Heehee..I'm excited too! My sister bought the book and has already finished reading it; she's going to give it to me this coming weekend when I go to visit her. I'm forcing myself to wait until then.
