I finally read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Through some strange quirk of space-time I had been able to avoid all spoilers (except that HP lives and old Voldy-wart dies, hardly a surprise), so the suspense was there. Kind of.
I think good Mrs. Rowling should stick to children's books. Deathly Hallows was a succession of disjunct scenes somehow strung together, with a Deus Ex Machina thrown in every chapter or so. A nice read if you are bored, but hardly something I will read again.
