I read the book in the original language, and found it amazing. Here in Italy, HP and the Deathly Hallows has been released TODAY! We're the last ones!!:mad:
And the book has got an awful cover too...it shows 2 persons walking inside a cemetery.

Not in Amsterdam :)
Well, at least it's more in tone with the mood of the book, rather then the colourlfull display we've seen from the UK/Child cover for instance...

And it seems the Italians took their time translating. I've always though that the Dutch versions were severely rushed. They sincerely stink, translation-wise.

Bought the book. I think they did a good work translating it, but they could do it faster! XD
