“Having confidently proclaimed that David Chase would learn the lesson of John Updike‘s Rabbit and not kill off Tony Soprano too early (Come on, folks, he’s dead, dead, dead), I’m loath to predict what July 21 — and the final Potter book — will bring.

It rekindles the dread, the ache in your stomach that says, ‘He can’t die!’ — and at the same time, ‘How can he defeat everything racist, repressive, and murderously Fascistic in the world without making the ultimate sacrifice?'” — from a current review by New York magazine’s David Edelstein.
