Did anyone else find this unnecessarily gruesome?

Olivia Newton Yes, I found it also unnecessarily long. The whole book could have been cut by half in most of the chapters and it would have been okay. Seemed like she wanted it longer, so that it could be made in the a movie in the future.

Also unlike the first book, where the quotes in the beginning of sections in latin were useful and relevant, the quotes at the beginning of the chapter were annoying to me. Yes, I know they are revenge novels but they were not particularly famous or sometimes even helpful in the understanding of the chapters and seemed to be just thrown in there to let me know that there were the reading list of J.K. Rowling.
