Well, I finished the new Harry Potter book this afternoon. Keep in mind that my mother read it first so I got it on Tuesday. May I just say, wow. I don’t wanna spoil too much for those of you who have yet to read it, but it was very good. I always forget what an excellent writer she is. I mean, these kids are definitely 16 (if that tells you anything). Nothing that I wasn’t expecting happened, too, if that tells you anything. Well, wait, one thing did, but it was nothing too important, since apparently my mom and my sister were expecting it. Since book 2 according to my mom. I mean, I considered it, but brushed it to the back of my head. There were three things that came up within the course of the story that I figured out before we got the full explanation, too. Actually, one hasn’t been explained, and my brother cheated and found someone online who had figured it out. I had it figured by the end of the second to last chapter. I did figure out what the main conflict was, as well as something having to do with the strange behavior of a character introduced in book 5. I gave myself 5 points for everything I saw coming! Hope I didn’t spoil anything... I was considering putting a more detailed rant in a cut, but, well, I think you all know what I think and those of you who have read it know what I'm referring to. Including the things I saw coming from book 2, but probably not the one I didn't. Since apparently I'm the only person who thinks it's weird. And it has nothing to do with the really painfully obvious one, either. Okay, I'm done now. I think I made some little bit of sense.
