HP 7 - Was it what you expected?

An interesting question. It was what I expected in terms of the masterful pulling together of intricate plot details. Other than a vague list of ways that things could work out I purposefully squelched anything I would call an outcome expectation. I was delighted with the addition of yet one more plot to the myriad elements to be reconciled. And I really didn't expect it to be quite so tension-filled. Very few down moments. Would have made a great serial thriller.

Am I the only person in the world who has not read - or seen - a single iota of Harry P? At the moment I am engrossed in the letters of Winston and Clemmie Churchill. Is that sad? Glad you are enjoying your copy, though. I was wondering about the progress of your cello. Let's hope it has not floated away! The flooding is really bad in some areas of the country.

Eeep! I loved the new HP book. I didn't like the 19 years later part though. 'Twas a bit um corny I suppose is the word I am looking for.

~~Spoilers! Do not read any further if you do not want the book to be spoiled for ya~~

Honestly, I wanted Harry to die. I think he just... Needed to. But I knew he wouldn't when Lupin made him Teddy's godfather. I cannot believe that she killed Tonks, Fred, Lupin, and Dobby. That's just wrong. I want to strangle her for that. Sheesh.

Rallentando, yes, you might be. Not sad, but a bit mystifying. Enjoy your letters. The shop is happy I am being so understanding, but what can you do about floods?

~~ More HP Spoilers
Readers Beware ~~

Madeline, I know what you mean about the deaths. I think Hedwig was hardest for me. I can't blame her, though. The idea of a battle on that scale without deaths is pure fiction.

Ah GGP, It was Dobby for me. We named one of our pets after that house elf. Our pet died of really really old age.
