Wanna get spoiled?

Actually, she doesn't give all that much away, but Claire Gross' review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is up. The review will appear in the September/October issue of the Horn Book Magazine.

What about the adverbs? I thought it was the Horn Book reviewer's job to harp about them. Or was that what the "Ron said sycophantically" reference was all about?

I don't think we're ready for spoilers yet. An awful lot of people have not had a chance to read HP7 and won't get to it for awhile, most of all our low-income children who are waiting for the book through their libraries or to borrow it from a more financially secure friend. There are also slow readers, readers who wish to savor the book, and readers with busy lives who have to carve out time for it. I hope everyone keeps their mouth shut for awhile.
If you are interested, check out my article about why I bought HP7 at my local bookstore for full price. (And no spoilers). Find me at shakabaz.blogspot.com

Yes, if reviewers really wanted to be considerate of their public, they would wait to file their reviews until after everyone had read the book.
