Twisted, but strangely fluffy
Obligatory Harry Potter referencing post, spoiler free for your viewing pleasure:|
Read it this morning, hurriedly, since my mother was eyeing it up greedily. Was pleased to note that Rowling's settled into her progressively darker style after two rather weak books - less adolescent whining all round and more paranoia and intrigue, very nice.
Narrative Convention continues to be my friend and companion; I can safely claim to have worked out the identity of the titular HBP ahead of time, and had called the identity and time of death of this book's clog-popper back when book two came out. ¬¬ A number of surprising and good plot twists, though, kept it being at all pedestrian.
Harry's, erm, 'beast' is a bit new on the scene, though, innit? Maybe he should train it like an amorous version of Sam Vimes...
