Dumbledore's Death Faked!

Just finished J.K. Rowling's 6th installment of the Harry Potter series (Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince). I must admit, like an older and bigger friend, I too cried and could not believe that the greatest wizard Dumbledore is dead. Although I don't want to spoil things for those who have not read the book yet, like all the rest of the intrigued and thinking Muggles, I believe that DUMBLEDORE IS ALIVE!

In fact he will be back on the last book (I hope it really is the last, Rowling is running out of ideas from her magic hat but definitely not of cash). He will continue to teach Harry lessons to defeat Lord Voldemort. One puzzling scene though involved Snape (Dumbledore's trusted assistant). Did he really (re)turn himself to the Dark Lord as a Death Eater? Was Dumbledore's death a hoax staged to catch the Death Eaters off guard?

Clue: On the battle at the Lightning Struck Tower Dumbledore mentioned to Malfoy that there is an option for him to go back to the Good Side. That there is a way to make it appear that Malfoy and his parents been killed so Voldemort would not retaliate on them. Could this be also on the minds of Snape and Dumbledore? Hhhhmmm....

Well this is just a conjecture. I hope Rowling is not surfing the net to see what people are thinking about the death of the Wizard that could preempt the ending of her Potter septralogy.

Still not convinced? I found this site helpful indeed.

Comments welcome!

    I just finished this chapter and can't believe it myself. I even flipped ahead through the rest of the book to see whether is was just a set up, but couldn't find anything.

    If you're interested check out my blog, I comment on each of the chapters in half blood prince as soon as I read them.

    I really like your blog. It's really attractive.
