You know, I can't believe we didn't discuss this before!
Now that I've finished the book (and all I want to do is start at Book 1 and reread them all), here's the question:
When is it OK to post reviews of the book, especially reviews that discuss spoilers? Not, you know, to spoil it but to discuss it.
I think as long as you headline the post clearly, reviews are fine and dandy. People who haven't read it can stay away.
I've finished, too, and just wrote a review for MSN. So I'd love to know what you think.
I already posted my review, but gave nothing away other than by half way through the book I thought J.K. Rowling would solve everything by killing every single wizard and witch. Whew, thank goodness I was wrong there.

Just what I was planning....
I'm going to review it in time for my Blog discussion, but I don't see why you can't review it with spoilers - anyone will know, surely, that one is bound to discuss plot points in detail - no point in reviewing it otherwise, I'd say...
I shall be re-reading the entire series in another month or so, I think. I want to get more of my non-fiction reading for research done before I sink back into the Potterverse...
I think you should review it as soon as you finish it, just like any other book. I am not reading any reviews till I finish it, of course, and that might take me a week or so at this rate. I think I'm just going to collect links to all the reviews and read them after I finish.
I read a great blog that summarized all the other HP books last night because there is no way I have time to read them all again and with my memory I really need a refresher. Take a look at Goddess of Clarity.
I know - it's driving me nuts! I can't even talk about it in my own home . . .
I think it's time. Really. Just warn folks in the header. It's all out there now, in the common ethosphere...
A friend of mine is making her review an invisible post, i.e. making the text the same color as the background so you have to highlight it in order to read it.
I, too, think it's ok as long as you have a spoiler in the title. I'm waiting for my copy from the UK, and am just scroll, scroll, scrolling away from the spoilage!
