Whew! I finished the book at about 8am Monday morning. Not too shabby if I do say so myself, especially since I worked almost 24 hours this weekend!
Some quick, non-spoiler-ish comments before I dash off to work yet again:
I am amazed at how many things I'd correctly guessed before I even picked up a copy of this book. I correctly predicted: romance details, the identity of the half-blood Prince, and the one who would bite the big one at the end. I'm not usually very good at guessing things like these, so that made this book way more predictable to me than most HP books. EXCEPT, and this is a big exception...I honestly didn't see one character's choice going the way it did.
I LOVE all the new details about the world and the spells and character backstories and stuff. I can't wait to discuss this in more detail with people!
