Harry Potter- Present, Future

After reading the latest installment of the Harry Potter series, I’m thinking if “The Prisoner of Azkaban” still remains my favorite Potter book.
Thickly plotted, the book is very gripping. Each line has been carefully written and nothing has been overdone. Even though we stumble on whatever has already told here and there, the repetition enhances the overall effect.
When I read the “Order of the Phoenix”, I felt that my cousin’s hunch that JKR was losing her touch was true. But “The Half-Blood Prince” proves otherwise. Unlike the 5th book this one is not hazy. It has a definite direction. Everyone seem to have more control over themselves. Harry’s love life has been made more subtle. It seems that the main role of the book in the series is to connect old threads and draw new ones.
There is one part in the main plot that intrigues me- the behavior of Snape. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape so much? Is there a more valid reason for Snape to kill Dumbledore other than the Unbreakable vow?
So, what might happen in the next book? Since JKR is indicating that Hogwarts might not open next year, there is a lot of adventure expected in the next book. We might be seeing more of Snape. We will, obviously be seeing Harry trying to protect himself when Lily’s protection lifts and after Dumbledore’s death Voldemort will be very active. “R.A.B” might be a new character who might aid him in finding the remaining Horcruxes.
And we Potter fans might have to wait for a long time to find out what the last book will be called, Harry Potter and “the 4/5/6 Horcruxes” or “the final struggle” or some other name that we cannot figure out, and longer time to read it.

    i think Goblet.. is the best one. after that, she has been swayed by popularity waves and not really been true to herself. phoenix seems like just an outofcontrol sorta book on first read, but on repeated reading, you happen to notice the character development in case of, say, neville or ginny or harry, and even sirius and ron. hbp is a more in-control book but lacks the general excitement she can create. her choice of words doesnt really make the images come alive in your head as they did in GoF. i think she intended it as a kind of part 1 to book 7.

    i kind of agree with priya on order of phoenix. when i first read it i was disappointed. but when i read it again last month, i liked it.I did not like hphbp. I felt that though well written, it didn’t carry any charm,deep thrill for what is going to happen or those tiny goosebumps you expect to rise in your arms! my fav was azkhaban and sorcerers stone any day!! anyways.. if you have not checked this site out, do. It has some very interesting analysis of book 6. http://www.dumbledoreisnotdead.com
