The New York Times ran a review of "Deathly Hallows" today. (So did the Baltimore Sun, according to Romenesko.) And, as someone who ranted below about being told to hold back information on "The Simpsons Movie," I suppose I should shrug off the Times' move as them pursuing the news, and never mind the spoilers. But I'm not going to read the review, and I'm going to try to avoid every TV news and online discussion of the book that I can UNTIL I GET TO READ THE BOOK MYSELF.
That's a position that goes beyond not wanting to know how it ends. Even more, I want to read how it gets to the end -- to see how Rowling leads us to her conclusion, and tries to make us accept it, whatever that conclusion may be.
In other words, I want to read the book.
