Default Harry Potter and the newest addition to his repertoire (spoiler free)

Wow...I've read like 20 reviews (and the book also, of course) and I must say, it is the best one yet. Most of the negative reviews sincerely missed themes and ideals...however simple they may be to grasp...in their attempt to denounce Rowling. Honestly, no other book has affected me emotionally so much. That actually made me develop genuine care like never before. Literature might be like music, so others might not have the book speak to them like it has to me, but...what was I going to say...

Ah yes. I loved it. Although it had obvious satirical references ("Downing Street"? Come on, hide it a little better than that. Stanley Stunpike, etc) actually made the book deeper for me...I analyzed it like I would Lord of the Flies for the first time. I always thought the HP books were a way to escape from reality, but creating a similarity and way to relate with my world comforts me. Knowing that things will look up, or draw to a close, and we'll all float on okay.

And having the world go crazy for a piece of literature- whatever it's grade- is IMHO always a good thing.

Anyone else have thoughts?

Cheers.

It's a pretty good book so far.
A bit confusing at some parts, but good overall.

Lol, I must admit that I reacted verbally to the book at various parts.

Some are innapropriate, so I won't repeat them. :-[

This spoiler free thread shall remain open and supervised due to the fact that it's unfair to force people to ruin the book if they want to discuss it. Anyone spoilers, I smite automatically.

I'm still reading it, I'm on ch 12 so far. It's good but the best one's were the last two, especially no. 4 ( the love interest was fun to read and it was very relateble to me).
