The Guardian has an article on JK Rowling’s agent. Towards the end of the article, there are a couple of lines from Chapter One, Book Seven, which might be real. I recognize Rowling’s writing style. Looks very real to me. We’ll need to wait until next Saturday to confirm it however.
The Deathly Hallows: a sneak preview In a trailer for the forthcoming ITV documentary, A Year in the Life… J K Rowling, the camera lingers long enough on a printed manuscript of the novel, dated 23 October 2006, to make the opening visible to the eagle eyed. It reads:
‘Chapter One. The Dark Lord Ascending. The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane. For a second they stood quite still, wands pointing at each other’s chests: then, recognising each other, they stowed their wands beneath their cloaks and set off, side by side, in the same direction.
“News?”, asked the taller of the two.
“The best,” replied Snape.’
UPDATE: I found lots of links that I have reason to believe are true. Most of these pictures are scans of the real book, which have appeared in many stores for distribution. PLEASE click on any link at your own discretion, because it might spoil your fun later.
Wiki Link (I don’t think this is real though)
Yeah, looks like the last word is not ‘scar’.
UPDATE 1: Chapter One Page One!! (Once again, thank you iForget)
This link gives a normal copy of the book. (Thanks diggy!)
Link for the pdf version (Updated! Working again)
Complete Book can be downloaded from here and here and here.The latter is a torrent link for the pdf file. You can also check the comments section and see if those links work. I will try to update this post as much as I can.
By the way, I don’t know if any of these links are real or not…waiting till Saturday might be a reasonable thing to do. I’ll probably take them at face value and might not even read the whole thing. They are in the image format and really strain your eyes.
****PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION WITHOUT A WARNING, ELSE I WILL DELETE YOUR COMMENT****THERE ARE MANY OF US WHO DON’T WANT TO DISCUSS THE BOOK UNTIL WE READ IT**
