(No Spoilers) I finally finished it tonight. I'm truly blown away by this book, the strength of it alone raises the value of the entire series. Rowling writes with the passion, the range of emotion, and the beauty that every artist, of words or of pictures, aspires to, and has matured in her talent as much as Harry himself. The complexity of the story makes me nearly certain that it would be impossible to make a movie that does this book justice.
