I’ve seen “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and will probably go see it again this weekend. But then what? It’s ages until “New Moon” hits theaters. I’ve got a “geeky-book-fan” void to fill.
If you haven’t read the first book, get it now and read it before September. It is fantastically creepy, even Stephen King agrees. When I finished the book, I was dumbstruck — kind of like at the end of “Empire Strikes Back” (for those of us who saw them in the correct order and were surprised). That was 10 months ago, and I was pissed that I had to wait to find out what happens next to Katniss, the heroine. Now, gladly, I realized today that I have just over a month to wait (and the hope that this series goes to film).
Void filled, well, at least until the first week of September. Damn! Then what?
