After it appeared on a bunch of torrent sites, J.K. Rowling's latest book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, seems be out for good. The most popular torrent sites were quick to take it off, obviously fearing litigation, but this was too little too late.
The highly anticipated book has found its way to file sharing sites such as Rapidshare, and people are apparently posting links on warez sites. The entire book was photographed, cover to cover. Quality seems to be very poor and some pages are completely or partially unreadable. But in spite of that it's still the complete book, online and available to anyone just a few days prior to the official release date.
I'm not a fan, and I have no idea who is who in the book, but a bunch of characters will indeed die before you're finished reading it. This reminds me of a great Bosnian writer who drank himself to death. Every now and then he would take a couple of books from the local library and, in the comfort of his own home, proceed to write a spoiler somewhere in the middle in all of them. "The butler did it !"
