it was amazing

I have three words for you: oh - holy - hell. I had braced myself but I wasn't really expecting the bottom to drop out from under us until the 7th book. Arghhhhh.

There's more of the same here ie. heartbreak and betrayal but this may just be the most terrifying and complex of the series. In fact, there is so much plot advancement that it makes me want to crawl into a ball (while I wish for simpler times when Harry was just an orphan who finds out he's a wizard and there was still lots of fun to be had. Remember? Evil was evil and good was good. Sigh.)

And then there was Snape. Oh Snape, dark and brilliant... and despite all the mounting evidence to the contrary, I'm just not ready to fully give up on you yet. My brain is surely still in shock, just trying to make sense of it... somehow. But ya know this completely illogical hope of mine? Yeah, it's hanging by a thread... one very weak, quickly unraveling thread.

So far I'm not in love with the set up for the final book but then what choice do we have? There are insurmountable challenges ahead... death, destruction, mayhem. Eek. Ok, let's do this thing...
