***more spoilers***
Thumper: Oh, I'm all with you on that first death.

But when I said curses, heh, I meant spells. :)
(Now that you mention it, though, was there any swearing?)
Anyway, it bothered me that Harry used Unforgivable Curses.

No, the language was appropriate for the circumstances of the book. There was a death early on that I felt was completely unnecessary to the story, other than to say "hey, look, it's gonna be a bloody ride." There was no point to it other than waving that particular flag, and it did not advance the story.

Mrs. Who: When the first death happened so early practically over the Dursley's house, it reeeeally ticked me off.
"Fine," I thought, "So that's how it's gonna be, huh? No one is sacred."
After that, I suspected every paragraph was going to be someone's last.

Thumper: Was it

*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT* Don't read further unless you've already read it. I mean it. Don't read any further...okay, now. I loved the book, but I almost felt like doing a 'body count' like fans do for episodes of '24'. The saddest one of all for me was at Bill and Fleur's place. Dammit.



I am ready to start again... Definitely. :)

I ran out to Costco yesterday morning to get it and promptly sat my ample tush in a chair and read with only a few breaks until I was finished.

My predictions were mostly wrong, she did at least one thing I *really* didn't agree with, but overall the book kicked a$$ and I'll definitely read it again.
