Harry Potter: Awesome Book or Gratuitous Pulling Tool?

As is usually the case with fads like this, being one of the (surprisingly) few reading The Deathly Hallows on The Tube this week has made me one of a special club of people, each member recognising the connection we have with one another. So for the last few days we've been secretly smiling or winking at ourselves, almost in a smug like fashion.

Sometimes we even start talking about the book itself; like today, when I had struck up a conversation with a rather pretty girl on the Central Line. Well I say "conversation", when in actual fact I had to cut it pretty short after discovering she was a good hundred pages ahead of me.

I mean hey, I didn't want to hear her say anything stupid now... Did I?
