it is finished

I finished the new Harry Potter book. I can once again prowl the internet at my leisure, unafraid of spoilers. I can once again return to work without fear of my babbling teenagers. Victory is mine! And I will not spoil it for the rest of you, so read on without fear.

I am beginning to realize that I am a master of "willing suspension of disbelief". So many of the little plot twists and turns were things that had occurred to me at some point before they happened, but I never stood back and fully fleshed them out in my mind. I guess I'm not big on predictions because I'm afraid that I'll be right (or wrong), and in the end I just want to experience the story in the sequence that it happens.

and, and, and?!?!?

Did you like?? I am willing and ready to discuss... :) Mark is too -- he just finished last night, as he had to wait for me first!

I am putting a one-month limit on publishing my thoughts on the internet, mostly out of respect for Aaron who just might take that long to finish the book. My tongue is tied in my own home!

Maybe I will write a post right now about it, and only post it when the time is right...

Well, I liked it! Muchly!

I woke up on Sunday morning at about eight o'clock and one of my roommates was sitting on his bed reading the last chapter after 24 hours of pretty much non-stop reading. English is his second language so it took him 16 hours longer than my other roommate, who also (for some reason) decided to read it in the middle of the night. As for me? Maybe I'll read it some day.

I liked it. I liked the ending and I liked that it was scary from the very first page. Good books make me very happy! Now I have to re-read Stardust and the Golden COmpass before the movies come out!
