I'm going to have to read this one again. Eight hundred plus pages is a lot to digest in two nights of reading, so I know I missed a lot.

I finished it on Saturday, but I started reading it again right away. My first time through was a bit rushed, just to see what was going on, the second time through I tend to go a bit slower and admire the details. Sort of like the books that run from many characters point a view (Martin comes to mind), I tend to breeze through the characters I am not really interested in. In this case I was breezing through wanting to know what happened next.

That said, man, is Harry a snotty teenager!

He does spend a lot of time speaking in caps doesn't he. I think he yells at just about everybody in the book. A lot of that comes from the fact that nobody believes him, and that he is being kept in the dark, but that does a lot to go back to Snape. He is spying on Volermort and everybody hates him when he should be called a hero. No wonder the guy is in a bad mood all the time.

With regard to Harry being the Dark Arts prof, I thought JK would give the job to Snape in the last book. Mainly since JK mentions how much he wants the job in every book.

I did like the order having a talk with Harry's uncle. "Do I look like somebody that can be easily threatened?" "Yes, you do"

But now we will have to wait a gods age till the next book
