Excited – 58%
Memories of Potter – 34%

Skepticism – 2%
The reactions were consolidated from 4,800 posts on Twitter and Facebook, between February 23-24.
I did not read any of the Harry Potter books, but my daughter did, and also saw all the movies.
I think I will read this one, whatever it is, and whenever it comes out, just out of curiosity.
What about you? Let’s talk about it really soon.
