This book did interesting things to the main character. I missed some of the typical snarkiness that I associate with Harry, but I also understand why it had to go away, it isn’t easy being dead. On that not, it was quite refreshable reading a story when he couldn’t just go barging in and blowing things up. Instead he had time to reflect on the fact that the bad guys are indeed people, not just bad guys. Him having to rediscover how to use magic was an intriguing storyline, I couldn’t help getting frustrated with him when nothing worked. I also liked all the flashbacks the book contains, much had been hinted at beforehands, so it was nice to get the full story of his past.
The story was a bit confusing. A lot of new elements were added that were a bit difficult to keep up with. There was also a return of a main baddie that I had no memory of. I feel like these books could use a recap in the beginning.
The ending was not surprising given the fact that there is like two more books already published, and at least one more to come. That said, I still want to know how it plays out in the next one. There was after all some surprising parts.
I have somehow only read one book this month. I blame school, second year November is brutal. So much homework and test, December is not looking any better. Also, terrible lightning on the bus home which makes it difficult to read. For next month, I plan to have read at least to classics and a fantasy book. Wish me luck!
Ha, so far December has not been any better, so this thing maneges to be both 2, 9 and 12 days late. My winter break begins in one week and before that I have to major assignments to turn in, one book report and two laboratory test. Beside all of that I also have a voluntary assignment to turn in with a turn in date after the break starts, don’t know how my teacher thought there. Any way, what I’m trying to say is that I’m sorry for taking forever and I hopefully promise regular updates from now on, I already have next week’s text written (it is one of the assignments, it has correct APA referens and all of that fun stuff).
