Michiko Kakutani at The New York Times - no spoilers that I noticed. Not that any review would convince me not to get a copy first thing Saturday morning (and no, I'm not going to stay up until midnight to grab one at 12:01am, but my daughter might). Amazon, of course, has it for $18.

Unusual perspective. I take the Harry Potter books as great anti-authoritarian literature. Pro-gun, too. After all, a magic wand in your pocket is more useful and at least as potentially dangerous as a .45 on your hip. And in Harry's world, children carry them everywhere, starting at the age of 11, and are considered trained well enough to use them in every day life by 17. No proper witch or wizard would ever go anywhere without his or her wand. Just as no proper human should ever go anywhere without a gun.
