I'll come back from vacation briefly to confess that I spent most of yesterday reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Verdict: I thought it was quite good, not without the inevitable rough patches but overall probably the best book of the series. Harry himself is still an insufferable git, willing to think the worst of his closest friends at the slightest provocation, but the teenage-angst stuff is kept to a minimum. Best line, at least in context:
"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!"
I got a bit misty in places, including that one. Rowling does a much better job at tugging on heartstrings here than in previous installments. Let's allow spoilers in the comments, so don't read them if you don't want to be spoiled.
