[ 2006-12-21 10:32 ]

对哈利·波特迷来说,梦中与哈利·波特相遇轻而易举——日有所思,夜有所梦嘛!奇怪的是,一直以来,《哈利·波特》系列魔幻小说作者J·K·罗琳都否认自己梦见过哈利·波特的魔幻世界。不过,几天前,J·K·罗琳与哈利梦中无缘的魔咒终于不攻自破。据报道,罗琳官方网站登载了她的最新日志,罗琳在日记里面说她梦见自己成了哈利·波特,一部史诗的叙述者。

Harry Potter has entered the dreams of his creator, J.K. Rowling, for the first time, and the British author feels both elated and stressed about completing the seventh and final installment of the hit book series.

But in the latest diary entry on her official Web site (www.jkrowling.com), Rowling gives no hard clues as to what will happen at the end of the upcoming book, amid speculation that some of the characters, possibly Harry himself, will die.

"For years now, people have asked me whether I ever dream that I am 'in' Harry's world," Rowling continued in her diary. "The answer was 'no' until a few nights ago when I had an epic dream in which I was, simultaneously, Harry and the narrator."

Rowling described how, as Harry, she was searching for the Horcrux (a magical object), while as the narrator in the dream she knew where it was all along.

She saw waiters and waitresses from the cafe where she has been writing the book walking on stilts making them "at least 15 feet high. Perhaps I should cut back on the caffeine."

There is no firm date set for the completion of the final Harry Potter book, although it is expected to hit the shelves some time in 2007.

"I'm now writing scenes that have been planned, in some cases, for a dozen years or even more," she wrote in the diary entry dated December 19.

"I am alternately elated and overwrought. I both want, and don't want, to finish this book (don't worry, I will)."

The book series has sold an estimated 300 million copies worldwide, making Rowling one of the most successful authors of all time. A film franchise has also taken the box office by storm, earning billions of dollars from four films made so far.

Rowling, 41, said she had seen a 20-minute clip from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," the fifth film based on her series due out next year, which she called "fantastic."

Earlier this year Rowling said at least two characters would die in the final book, but she did not name them.
