Sorry for the lack of posting today, I was busy finishing up the new Harry Potter.
Without giving anything away, I can say that it was part Star Wars, part Homeland Security and part [insert coming of age book here]. And I discovered that I really don't like Harry at all. He's the kind of kid I despised in school. Sure, he has a lot going on in that head of his, but he's still to self-absorbed and petulant for my taste. And I definitely liked the way Neville matured in this book.
Even though the foreshadowing was too obvious and even though I saw some of the plot twists coming a mile away and even though the dialogue was tedious at some points, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book in spite of these things. So much so that - like with any decent book - I was very sorry that it came to an end.
Well, not right away. I've got a day's worth of blogging to catch up on.
