I read this book in 3 and a half hours, and although it wasn't as long as the last two, I think I liked it better. Without giving too much away, I will tell you guys that there's a pretty major death and an equally major betrayal. While the end is fairly sad(I was crying, I am not ashamed to admit it), I think this one is probably the best book yet. It does leave a lot of questions to be answered, but we learn a lot-it helped me understand events that had taken place in previous books (and even before the series) much better. The only problem is that now I really, really, really want to find out how it all ends!

So, I just finished the book. I liked it way better then #5. It was shorter, more tightly plotted, and generally more cohesive than the last installment. However, I really think the whole thing with Harry giving up his girlfriend was a bit too Spiderman for me. Actually, HP graphic novels could be a big seller...like J. K. Rowling needs more money...

Jokes aside, here is my one issue: the end of the book totally sidesteps the need for only seven books in the series, thus allowing J. K. Rowling to drag the story out forever!!! Noooooooooooooo!
