A letter to J.K. Rowling

Dear Ms. Rowling,

I've just finished reading your infamous latest novel, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows.
I know, thousands of people have been through with your novel for ages and they may have winced at me the moment they read my statement, but alas, buying a book in my country is a luxury to many (including me). I must wait for some time before I could lay my hands on your book and believe me, it's worth the waiting.

My praise goes to the part when Harry was bitten by Nagini and he and Hermione almost got caught by Voldemort. How the elder wand turned out to belong to Harry, you pulled it neatly in your novel. I even shed my tears when the image of people dear to Harry showed up as he drew the Stone.

Now that I've done with the book, I am entering my post-Potter depression* like so many people out there. I pray that you shall be enlightened to make another Harry Potter's adventure so that this burden, this misery, this pain, can be lifted from us all.

Sincerely yours,

Your fan in misery

*The empty feeling that comes from finishing the seventh book in the Harry Potter series and realizing there will be no more.

Even though I'm not a Potter fans, but I kinda think I share your misery.

The question now maybe will Rowling do what Conan Doyle did when he brought back Sherlock Holmes to live after he made him dead? Or could she write another adventure as fine as the Harry Potter's?

Warmest regards,
