I keep getting up to refer to the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. If I don’t stop this, I’ll never get anywhere. Though I did have to get up the first time simply because Rowling is not holding back, here; this is a dense, dark, straight-to-it sort of book, no fussing around or dawdling at the beginning.
Like I said, no spoilers here, but I did get a little choked up two or three times already.
Back I go. The boyfriend has been pressed into service as a coffee maker and another cup awaits.
