I want JK Rowling to create a series about Tom Marvolo Riddle.

I'm sure it'll be good for fans, but I kind of wish when an author "retires" something they would stick with it. It's like sequels of other books and/or movies that "ended", and often ends up just damaging the integrity of the original works.

This isn't really a book but a play script.....

JK had a tough childhood. But talk about blossoming. Big crush on her. I hear when she has the muse, even the husband knows better. Tough on him when the wife is as attractive as she is. I started the Potter films on the third one, and I thought it was spectacular, and meditative. Saw the rest after, but not the first two. Maybe my age.....looks like the New York film will be first class.

When will there be a Japanese translation?

It's the script of the stage play written by Jack Thorne based on an original new story by Thorne, J.K. Rowling and John Tiffany. It wasn't even supposed to be published, but since the stage play is only playing in London, Harry Potter fans demanded a book be released since only a handful could ever see the play in London.

Yes. It's brilliant. I can see schools putting on the play, amateur dramatic societies being reborn. It may start a come back for dramatic arts!

Rowling is a genius. She has done wonders in restoring literacy in a society where reading is becoming less and less popular. She writes stories kids WANT to read, as opposed to stories that adults think kids want to read but don't.
