Of course, in Harry Potter fan-land it's like a million years late, to be finishing this. I mean, I waited a whole WEEK to order it, didn't wait in any lines or anything. I had a hard time getting into it, to be honest. But I did it! And I even liked it, toward the end. And if I were a Times reviewer I would be so proud of myself if I thought up the words "lumpy" and "clunky" to describe the book (I agree, by the way). And it's so funny how no one talks about the end. There was all this hype, and I know there were spoilers out there (including my father, grrr). But for the most part there was silence after it came out, like no one wanted to ruin it for anyone else. People are just so darn nice.
