Last night I finished the seventh Harry Potter book. While I was not in a race to finish the book like Peter was, I did read it in just a few days. In fact, I read about half the book yesterday. I really wanted to be spoiler-free when I read the book (which I was), and the further from the release date we got, the harder it was getting to steer clear of spoilers.
I enjoyed the book. It was very different from the others in the series. It tells a different kind of story. There were some surprises, but overall it turned out as I expected.
