Amphy, you're sooooo mean... LOL, I love you XD :wink:

I hope my prediction on who's going to die is correct as well. And I'm almost 100% sure on who's the half-blood prince.

But who dies (besides Hermione :P ), I've got no clue...

The book came out today. I've seen costing around 100 reais (40 dollars), but I've found a shop that's selling it for 70 reais (28 dollars). However, I guess I'm just borrowing from a friend (in english, of course).


Really? I got my book for $19 at Barnes and Noble.. (I was second in line; got up at 6:30 and waited at the store until it opened at eight...)

I wouldn't be too sure about who the HBP is... I guess I can't say who I thought it was either because that's a spoiler too. Ahh, well, <insert rant here>

My gosh that ending was a killer though, and she's not going to whip up the final book for like five years, is she? Or else she's going to decide she's made enough money to stop writing the books, and we should be happy with the Fan Fictions we have to go with.

... Not at all happy with the now confirmed 'ships... The two I didn't want to happen.

I highly advise that if you plan to read the 6th, that you read the first 5 first. It ties everything together quite well and explains a lot, you also need the back story. The relationships quite flatly suck...also there are two distinct words she used which I thought "woah interesting choice of words there" because she used them as their old meanings.

She is definately going to write the 7th, as she hasn't finished telling the story :P I doubt she'll write more HP after that. The 5th one took 3 years to write and release, the 6th 2...so I'm predicting 3 years again for the 7th as she said that will probably be the longest.

I thought this book was one of, if not the best of the series.

I'm going to get it sometime, when I have money and I'll be able to get it for $15 dollar at Barns & Noble (discount cards rock!) and I also reserved a copy Mwahahaha!! Anyway I have some predictions on the book, like who'll die and stuff. You know when I was reading the 5th book I was really hoping that Sirius would be the DADA teacher, but then the sad part in that book happened and kinda crushed my dreams, he would've been a 8|7(|-|||| DADA teacher!! But anywho I really hope it's as good as you say guys it is!








And also, OMG somebody killed Hermione!!! :P

I couldn't expect for it no longer, so I had to buy it. I'm starting Chapter 6 (I'm currently at page 113). As a nice-Snape lover I hope in that chapter (yes, that one) he's only faking. :roll:

Note. I've accidentaly clicked on the "last post" symbol in the TV/Movies/Book Discussion board and it led me to Amphy's new topic. Before I read everything I saw in big letters SPOILERS, but I was a bit late and I've discovered something...I always tell myself I don't mind spoilers, but I guess I'm feeling a bit...bad, knowing who dies before it happens now that I'm reading the book... :P
