I took 9 hours off on Saturday to read it (my pleasure book reading sure has slowed down, as I do so little of it the last 10 years!) -- it's like 870 pages long. Only a Potter book could be that big, be read at one sitting, and make me sad there wasn't more to read. This novel has several 'allegory to real world' gov't-type themes woven through it, as well as an older (now 15), defiant and irritable Harry, whom I identified with pretty well LOL. (All the folks with miserable childhoods identify with Harry. ;-)) Objectively I never thought Rowling (the author) to be very exceptional, but subjectively I have always loved the Potter books and have read them several times. I think I could continue reading about his life year by year until he's 80 if Rowling wants to keep writing about him. These books are about "magic", and like Kurtz's wonderful 'Camber of Culdi' series about the Deryni, is a sort of parallel-world concept; Kurtz's (a historian) was a parallel of an earth with a genetic line of psi/magic set several hundred years ago, Rowling's is earth with a genetic line of psi/magic set in the present, but hidden by another magical dimension and a government in that world that enforces secrecy, cover-ups and other suppression of info here in Mundania (as Piers Anthony calls it) or 'the Muggle world' as Rowling might. Needless to say, since they're about magic the books have had extensive religious backlash against them as evil, which didn't keep the books, esp. the current one, from breaking just about every record in publishing history, including the most product ever sent from e-commerce in a single day (1 million -- amazon.com). The books have been so popular that the NY Times had to make a separate category for that genre to avoid having the adult bookseller list dominated entirely by them almost indefinitely. I normally loathe stuff hyped into the stratosphere, I admit-- sometimes unfairly, solely because the hype disgusts me. But I pre- ordered it and really enjoyed the book, as I have all her books, and I'm glad Harry is getting older as it seems she is bringing in more adult themes and emotional depth now. One of the most humorous recurring characters in the Potter books is the instructor for Divination, who is the archetype of the psychic fraud, with candles and curtains and woo-woo effects, constant predictions of doom--and utterly no psychic talent whatever. Hilariously, this person however has made the two most powerful psychic predictions ever (the first is why the school's headmaster hired her originally). I really love the idea of someone who is a fraud actually being the one to once in a great by sheer accident get something really impressive -- that is probably more the reality of psi than other ideas! (Reminds me a bit of Whoopi Goldberg's character in "Ghost".) In one of the previous books, after she utters a real prediction to Harry (and very funnily, has NO memory or realization of having done so), the headmaster says something like, "Hmmn, that's two accurate predictions in 15 years. I should give her a raise." LOL! I'd go into it more but I don't want to spoil it for people. This leads into something about RV and thoughts and plans, but I'll do that in a separate email to keep them shorter. PJ Reply | Forward

Now that's impressive ( 100 pages an hour / ~one line a second) but also sad . I will do my best to make it last a month or so. When it ends I will also be very sad. I'm not reading the rest of your comments until I finish. It might ruin something...G Bill ---------------------------- I said nothing to give stuff away, I wouldn't do that. :-) I used to cover about 3 books a day in high school. That is, using the spare time I had in history and science, my two most hated subjects, which were promptly my two most favorite the moment I left school... is it possible to teach these subjects any worse than they do I wonder. I'm getting very slow now in pleasure-reading speed. And it ain't the same unless it's backlit and hyperlinked, LOL. But I sure love being able to read from the soft couch! PJ Reply | Forward

I kept putting it down and deliberately doing other things in order to make it last. I started it on Sat. night and still finished it on Mon in spite of my dawdling and going to sleep early and so on...and now I don't have a new Harry Potter to read. :-( Sharon sharwebb...et www.fractalus.com/sharon > I will do my best to make it last a > month or so.

I mentioned how grown up Harry looked on the cover, and the clerk sort of smired.. and 800 pages of him. I unabashedly said.. " and that ain't NEARLY enough..8000 wouldn't be enough". It's a wonderful parallel universe to be in.. but I'm starting to feel we are all in one sometimes at night..just as bizzare and wonderful as Harry's. I wonder if JK Rowling spends time in one also.

Same sort of enjoyment that I got when reading the original version of Enid Blyton's "The Wishing Chair" under my bedcovers, with a torch and a pickle sandwich, so many years ago :-) Glyn
