Having read the complete book, I have doubts that it’s a big fake.
#1. Official page count – 784 pages. This one has 759 pages and so many extra blank pages. I don’t think this will ever happen. It’s a huge waste of paper. Also, if you look at the last page where it says “This book was art Directed by….” and ” bound at Quebecor World Fairfield in Fairfield, Pennsylvania” and it is printed on the LEFT side of the book, which is very weird. Take out book 6. The same thing is on the RIGHT side and it says “bound at Quebecor World Martinsburg in Martinsburg, Virginia“.
#2. Since when has Jo started using ‘Bitch’ in her books? Leaked version- Mrs. Weasley calls Bellatrix a bitch?! Plain weird.
#3. No mention of Fawkes.
#4. Luna hasn’t been mentioned in the Epilogue, which is very funny. She was as important as Neville. What about the rest of the Weasleys? No mention at all.
#5. Hermione tells the other two that she has modified the memory of her parents and they believe that they are going to Australia. Later, in the book when she tries to modify the memory of the Death Eaters and the waitress, she says that she is doing it for the first time and she will try!!?!
#6. Lily tells Snape that she has come to talk to him because some girl (forgot the name) told her that Snape plans to sleep outside the girl’s dormitories. I think that’s very very uncharacteristic of Snape, even though he might have been madly in love with someone.
#7. The inside flap of the book is blank. No blurb. The other books have some stuff written on the inside flap.
#8. No talk about Snape’s Boggart. I think Jo said that we would come to know more about Snape’s greatest fear and his Patronus.
#9. Did anyone notice the number of “What the-” in the book? The first thing that comes to my mind when I read “What the-” is ‘what the f#$%”?!
Take a look at this link if you want to read more about this. I’m having serious doubts now. So much for wasting an entire night’s sleep! Duh. I will be really upset if this turns out to be the real thing. Yeah, I might come across as a mental person now. First I said that it is the real thing and now I’m saying that it’s not. Well…I am hoping that it’s not the real thing.
UPDATE: If you thought that the carpet book is real, take a look at this. Doesn’t this one look equally real?
