Agh Agh Agh Agh Agh

I have just read, in a totally unrelated context, what I must presume to be a spoiler for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which I have not yet read.

This is not some little baby spoiler, either; this is “a major character being killed by another major character we thought was on the same side”.  Gah.

There was no way I could have avoided it, either–who bloody knew that a thread on D&D alignment would contain random Harry Potter spoilers?

My motivation for reading the book has just decreased, and I think it’s gone below the critical threshold.  I rather disliked …Order of the Phoenix;  I’m not interested in wading through 1500 pages that’ve been spoiled.
