Argh. So I'm one away from the end of the series. The story is interesting, and I am into some of the characters, but the way things hop around and some stuff happens out of nowhere and other stuff is built up to the point of ridiculousness is all kind of frustrating. And Dumbledore now reminds me of Vincent Donofrio's character on Law and Order Criminal Intent, in that he just sniffs at something and all of a sudden he knows everything about it. And he's all, "I might be wrong, but you know I'm right, right?" Anyway.
