21 July 2007 – 10:00 AM
I got the book from a reservation I made some times ago at the bookstore near my home. Well, at first, I though it might be a good idea to join the official launching of the book in Thailand at Central World Plaza but it was too early in the morning (5:00 AM.) So, I decided to get the book quietly in the neighborhood.
After finishing a lunch with family, I spent the whole afternoon reading the book. Just like all previous Harry Potter books, I struck with the skill and charm of J.K. Rowling’s writing. The book contains 36 chapters plus an epilogue in 784 pages. So far, I have finished chapter 13 which could roughly counted as one-thirds of the book. At this rate, I guess I will finish the book within tomorrow or Monday. Well, I will keep posting here the progress, of course, without spoilers as I hated those who ruin the enjoyment and excitement of others by telling out the essential part of the story one should discover by oneself. Thus, you may read my post here at ease.
All I could say as of now is that the final volume of Harry Potter is worth the waiting. The early chapters fill with surprises and mysteries here and there. The characters from previous volume, loved and hated by readers, are back in sensible way. It’s interesting to see where the story heads to thus making the book barely unputdownable.
Until tomorrow, I am off reading the next chapter…
P.S. My favorite chapter so far is Chapter 7.
