HP & The Half-Blood Prince

Alright. I finished the book Friday evening (or Saturday morning, depending) and now that the weekend is over and I've had a smidge of time to mull things over, analyze, and calm the fuck down, I think I'm ready to begin to write my intial review of the Half-Blood Prince. Maybe. Or. Not.

Either way, someone in another lj said that this was the Slytherin book, and as (I'd like to think I am) a Gryffindor, even the tone of the first chapters set me on edge. This one just seemed, from the beginning, to be a different read than the other installments of HP, and when I slammed it down that morning and remembered to breathe, I realized I was correct in my assumptions on a number of levels.

I don't want to spoil anything for anyone, so I'll just hold myself and rock back and forth until the next book comes out for a while, and maybe re-read it to see if I won't detest it a second time.

Mostly I'm just shocked. Well, sort of. I don't know. I'll just call it disappointment for now.
