JK Rowling says the latest Harry Potter book is one of the best she has written.
She said she is now putting the finishing touches to her sixth book The Half Blood Prince.
She said: "I like it better than I liked Goblet, Phoenix or Chamber when I finished them.
"Even if nobody else likes it - and some won't - I know it will remain one of my favourites in the series. Ultimately you have to please yourself before you please anyone else."
She also revealed she will be taking a break before finishing the seventh and final novel in the series.
She added: "I dare say my fingers will itch for a pen before long, they usually do but I doubt I'll be doing any sustained writing for many months yet."
