Look left. Look right. Clear the kids from the room. Anyone who has NOT read the new Harry Potter book and does NOT want it spoiled for them should skip this post.
Okay, you already know I loved it.
In Book 6, there was a lot of the same old thing happening. Harry don't do that - then he did it anyway. Partial conversations were overhead that always led people to the wrong conclusion. People were killed? No wait, survived. No wait, someone else? No survived. Like a cat and mouse game throughout the book. Annoying. (mind you, I read it anyway.)
But this one was more like a roller coast ride that you bought your ticket for, got in the car, tightened the buckle and then just held on while is zoomed up and down, then zigged and zagged. Not unlike trying to get to your vault in Gringots I presume.
And now for the spoilers.
Can you believe they killed Harry?
I must say, the part where Voldemort broadcasts his desire for harry to come out in one hour conjured up visions of the Wicked Witch flying over Oz writing "Surrender Dorothy" in the sky. Seriously, I couldn't shake that image for the rest of that chapter. It made me view Voldemort as much more comical that I should have... in a black billowing cape... painted green...
I want to know how Neville got the sword. Last thing I read was the Goblin had it. Did I miss a page?
If you're going to include an epilogue to tie things up, then what happened to Hermione's parents? So much was made about them moving away and forgetting they had a daughter. Then, nothing.
What happened to the Dursley's?
Ok, let's talk in the comments... I believe Carolyn and Rachel are about to bust...
