When I read books like this, other commercially driven books often feel rushed. That is, a book must have a problem to solve and writers need to establish or address that fast. But see, sometimes I read not because of the destination, but because of the adventure. In this case, to quote Prof Quirrell, I'm curious to what Harry would do next.
So here's a book that intrigues me, makes me laugh in ungodly hours, which it's lack of predictable plot and realism doesn't bother me, and in the end, somehow kicks me in the gut for its beautiful friendship/love story. Huh, never saw that one coming.
A quote that I really like from this book: Love doesn't walk away. <3
