Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
In one of the advertisements for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows we were told that Scholastic/Borders/Rowling would begin discussing seven topics of debate from the Potter universe. Though Harry Potter is essentially the star of the Harry Potter novels, one has to give credit to Professor Snape for stealing the show after Half-Blood Prince.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Debate: Snape Good or Evil?
Probably the biggest topic to debate - is Professor Severus Snape good or evil? Though we all have our own predictions on the matter -- which usually tie in to the 'Is Dumbledore a Goner?' debate -- nobody save Rowling and some printers at Scholastic know for sure.
Borders (Scholastic) approaches the issue (spoilers alert!):
The Harry Potter books are supposed to be about Harry Potter. So why can't we stop talking about Severus Snape.
Love him or love to hate him, Snape has become the pivotal character in the Harry Potter series. There are plenty of reasons to believe he killed Dumbledore at the end of Half-Blood Prince at Dumbledore's behest -- but plenty of reasons not to, too. So is Snape on Harry's side, or is he on Voldemort's? Is he bad to the bone, or just a little misunderstood?
Only after Deathly Hallows will we know for sure . . . but we can make some educated guesses now.
Designed as a flip book, half the book provides the case for Snape's innocence and when flipped over, the other half provides the case for Snape's Guilt. In The Great Snape Debate, you'll get all the facts on our favorite Potions Master so you can decide for yourself.
OK, OK, so you do have to buy a book to read the full debate. It looks like Scholastic is doing all they can to milk the Potter franchise before it ends this July (in book form at least).
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows hits shelves on July 21st.
