The new Harry Potter book was purchased yesterday lunchtime, and both D1 and I had read it before 7 pm.
It was a *great* improvement on HP V, but could still have done with some ruthless editing, IMO.
I don`t want to spoil it for those of you who may not have finished it yet.
I did love the obvious references to Princess Tony (oops, I meant our beloved leader, Tony Blair). Definitely one of the best bits of the book :-)
The predicted death was packed with twists and turns, and some quite unexpected denouments. Harry himself seems to have got his teenage angst of Book V under more control and appears to be a much more finely drawn character now.
All in all, a rollicking good read.
