Harry Potter, the Half-Blood Prince and Me

Warning: If you haven’t read or finished reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I suggest you stop reading this post now as it may contain spoilers.

At last, I finished reading the latest installment of the Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling. No more fear of spoilers from other people. Unfrotunately though, thanks to the spoiler I’ve read in my brother’s blog, the latest book’s ending wasn’t much of a surprise for me.

Even before I started reading the book, I was already aware that Rowling intended for one of the main characters to die in Harry Potter’s latest outing. That’s okay, I thought, because I didn’t know who it was going to be. But after my brother’s spoiler, I couldn’t even think of anybody else who might be killed except the person he named. Near the end, it could’ve been anybody still, but since I know who’s going to die, I only half-heartedly hoped that somebody else dies. In the end, I didn’t feel too sad for that character’s death because I was sort of prepared for it. Stupid spoiler.

Anyway, enough whinging about the spoilers. I certainly can’t wait for the last book. And when it does come out, I promise to be one of the first people to read it. Then maybe I could be the one dishing out the spoilers.
