HBP - spoiler-free

Oy. Despite the foreshadowing, I am still inexpilcably shocked. Perhaps it was the manner in which it happened. And have I mentioned I don't like Draco? Yeah, well, I still don't. Not that the slash writers won't have a field day with this book, because they will.

Just. Oy.

First impressions? As dark as expected. They've paired off believably, though she wouldn't have been my first choice. 'Ships all around. I'm a little amazed that more people were so surprised at some of the revelations. It's not like they were THAT subtle.

And, yeah. Quite capable of scaring the crap out of too-young kids.

More later.

Ugh... You acted like you were not at all shocked when you talked to me. All you could do was talk about the foreshadowing when I said I was shocked... Stupid people having an extra day to process think they're so smart... He he he he... Personally, with all the hoopla, I expected it to be darker...

Wait...one more thing before going to bed.

OK, the end didn't shock me...for the first time, I actually caught the foreshadowing. Go me!

But the Half Blood Prince did. Duh! But still...the time line seemed all wrong.

I wasn't surprised by who died. I saw that coming way.

But how I could miss who the Half-Blood Prince, I don't know. It was pretty obvious. I got all caught up in the fact that the potions text was printed long before the boy who scribbled all over it ever went to Hogwarts. Red herring, much?
