Feeling she didn't quite get them right the first time, Rowling is considering making changes to her beloved Harry Potter novels.
In the "what could possibly go wrong?!" category, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling recently expressed in an interview with the BBC that she felt rushed through several of the Potter books and would consider going back for a "director's cut." While this would presumably make the already meandering novels longer - something no one thinks is necessary - it would also give the depressed extreme Harry Potter fanbase a reason to buy and reread the novels. The fanbase, which is still going strong at places like MuggleNet, has had to subside on nothing but erotic fan fiction since the final movie left theaters in 2011.
Of course, this timely call to arms for the Potter fanbase has nothing to do with Rowling's new adult novel, The Casual Vacancy, which will be in stores next week. Here is the official description of the book:
When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ....
zzzzSNORT - Huh? Wha? Oh, sorry, we passed the fuck out because that shit is fucking boring.
