What more can I say without saying anything or everything? I got my copy at 2 and finished at 7:30, it is shorter than the last one. No less heartbreaking though. Differently heartbreaking.

Please offer me conversation and solace!

Well, I'm going off to the book store shortly, and will probably read the whole thing today, but it obviously hasn't happened yet.

eta ps. Maybe you could take a nap, and when you wake up, other people will be done reading too? I'm impressed, it has been a while since I stayed us all night reading (3 or 4 am is much more common).

Oh thank God it's shorter! I was afraid I'd have to buy a dolly to move it out of the store!

Better put "Spoiler Alert" in big letters when you post. I'm hoping to pick it up this weekend, so I'll have to avoid this thread for the next couple of days!

Oooookaaaay....I just finished. I am going to rot-13 my thoughts, so as not to spoil anyone. To translate, copy the text and paste it in the box here (rot-13 translator). rot-13 is a simple cipher that maps the alphabet shifted by 13 characters.

ETA: Spoilers ahoy below! You have been warned!

O.K. that is so cool. I've never seen anything like it and thanks for doing that. I couldn't resist this thread even though I'm only on page 100 or so. I got mine this afternoon at Costco (only $15.74) DH gets so mad at me when the Harry Potter books come out because I won't speak to him or do anything until I finish reading. He's gone now so, I can read freely. I was hoping to read it leisurely over the next week, but I can already tell that's not going to happen. I'm sucked in.

I didn't translate the spoilers, cause I'm only on page 90, but I had to check out the rot-13 website. That is just way too cool, and DH had me forward the link to him. He was floored by it! So, thanks for warning us about the spoils, and thanks too, for the incredible new "code"!

I will confess that I stole the rot13 from usenet - I've been lurking on rec.arts.sf.written for a long time, where it is frequently used on spoiler-ridden threads (many newsreaders include a rot-13 toggle, at least the old fashioned kind that I use do (rtin/tin)).

I am going to start over and go through slowly, since I know what clues/things to look for now.

After some consideration, I will say that I thought it was less dark than book 5. V guvax guvf jnf qhr gb gur ynpx bs nalguvat znwbe unccravat qhevat gur svefg 4/5f bs gur obbx.
