I won't throw out spoilers... yet.

I stayed up until 7 am reading Harry Potter. So I'm done. But because Moonrat is sick, and she is the most faithful of all my readers, I'll wait on my comments until she's done, too.

So, while we're waiting for THE WORD from angelle, let's take a break and consider something other than Harry Potter for a minute. I just finished The Emperor of Ocean Park, and I liked it. It's about a hundred pages shorter than the Deathly Hallows, but I think it probably could have been even shorter without hurting anything; Carter is kind of wordy. But once you get used to the voice of the narrator, it does move right along. It's a good, complex story, with interesting characters, and the puzzle pieces are presented in a slow, satisfying way--and are put together one or two at a time, instead of being dumped on the reader all at once, in the last few pages. It's also a thoughtful book that explores the ideas of right and wrong, and doesn't necessarily give the answers--or an ending--the reader might expect. Worth the effort, I think.
