About 7 years after the finale of her Harry Potter books, J. K. Rowling claims that maybe the way her story ended wasn’t the best finale.
So, it looks like the famous author has second thoughts about the ending of her highly successful story. The aspect that Rowling is not pleased with is that Hermione ended up with Ron.
Many Harry Potter fans were quite disappointed at the end of the book when Hermione and Ron became a couple. Actually, Harry and Hermione always seemed to be perfect for each other, so most likely fans waited to see the two together after all.
Now, even the author of the famous book series claims that probably Harry belonged with Hermione, not Ron.
These latest statements were made by J. K. Rowling in a new interview for Wonderland magazine.
In the interview Rowling admits that probably the finale should have been a little bit different. The author went on to explain that she made this choice for very personal reasons. “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment,” the popular author claims.
“That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron,” she added.
On the other hand, in the same interview Emma Watson seemed to not be very shocked with the recent revelations that J. K. Rowling made. According to Emma, there are many fans who wonder if Ron could have really been able to make Hermione happy. When finishing her books, Rowling decided to wed Hermione with Ron, while Harry wedded Ron’s sister, Ginny Weasley.
Did J. K. Rowling made a huge mistake at the end of her books? Should Hermione ended up with Harry, instead of Ron? J. K. Rowling now claims that she can perfectly understand the rage and fury that the finale of her books caused to fans.
J. K. Rowling made all these revelations when being interviewed by Emma Watson, who played the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies.
Naturally, the statements that Rowling made in this latest interview caused mixed reactions among fans. While some claim that Harry wasn’t a good match for Hermione, others are sure that they should have been together. What do you think?
