The NYT has a review of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which I just finished last night (thumbs up and more on that later).

The reviewer hits this on the head, for sure:

Suffice it to say that this new volume culminates in a finish so scorchingly distressing that the reader closes the book quaking, knowing that out of these ashes, somehow, the phoenix of Rowling’s fiction will rise again – but worrying about how on earth Harry will cope until it does.

All I can say is drat Ms. Rowling for writing such a cliffhanger that waiting for the next book will be a misery.

      I agree. The next couple of years are going to be dreadful. There’s so much left to wrap up in just one book. And I’m a bit worried that once again all the questions she answers will raise about fifty more.
