well. i can't say that booked gripped me at all. i started reading it on, hmm, wednesday maybe; and only finished today. there was only one chapter that excited me - when Harry and Dumbledore were going after the (fake) horcrux. maybe it's because i love things with riddles and traps and moving walls and stuff (and i was imagining the gates to Moria when they opened the door in the cave) and also because i love zombies.
the rest of it though. well, not that interesting i thought. i think i have been spoiled by fic being so good and fulfilling. kissing? yeah whatever.
so a general blah from me. which is odd cos i read OOTP in one go and as i recall was quite interested.
i'd like Snape to be evil, just because everyone else seems to think he's good.
