Harry Potter Leak

July 19th, 2007 at 04:26am

Hello again Clive and Abe,

I was most amused by the story in the news about the latest instalment of the Harry Potter series of books being "leaked" on the Internet, especially the bit about the publisher refusing to confirm whether or not the leaked book is a copy of the real book, after having said that they are taking the issue seriously.

The reason I find this amusing is because the publisher is insinuating that the 700 page book on the Internet might not be a copy of the real Harry Potter…why would anybody go to the trouble of writing a 700 page novel just to release online as the next Harry Potter book a few days before the real one is released? Do the publishers really expect people to believe that somebody would do this?

These books are already being distributed to book shops under an embargo…I think it is far more likely that somebody just decided to break the embargo.

Regards,
Samuel Gordon-Stewart

    I was never into Harry Potter, thought it was just another book tricking kids into witchcraft.
    Storyline seemed too dark for kids but where there’s a buck to be made we don’t mind sacrificing a few kiddies do we?

    My boyfriend was talking about hearing about this book leak on the radio yesterday. We`re both not into the whole harry potter thing but my boyfriend does work in a computer shop and he said that sometimes people will just upload one of the old books and say its the new one.Not sure what the point of it is, or if thats whats been done. Anyway, if the real book has been leaked somebody is gunna get in sooo much trouble! Hehe
