Yes, I — a fairly slow reader, in fact — just tore through a 759 page book in less than 24 hours. Such is the power of the Potter.
Part of the reason I was avoiding the internet today, aside from the fact that I was busy reading, was because I was afraid I’d stumble across spoilers. So, rather than say anything specific, I’ll just copy Evil Bender and give you my one-word review: perfect. It’s not a word I use often, but once I finished the last page I looked up at EB (who beat me by a half-hour or so), and said, through tears, “That was perfect.” Then we discussed more specific events, and more than once I said “I just thought that was perfect.” Thus I figured I’d go with my gut for the one-word review. 🙂
