Of course, you're in a REVIEW thread, which also says SPOILERS! in the title, so not sure what you were expecting, but that's kinda it. If you blew past the warnings, can't do much else to help. Very obviously enter at your own risk when you venture into spoiler threads for books or movies you haven't read/watched yet...
Yes. I get that. But a plot point THAT important should be in code. I came here to get a feel for what others are saying about the book, and expect some spoilers. That one is a biggie.
If you don't want to risk spoilers, don't go into spoiler threads. pretty straight-forward. It doesn't say MINOR spoliers, just spoilers. If you want to remain in the dark, the spoiler thread is a bad place to be.

Personally, I don't get that upset over spoilers. I'm in this thread and haven't read the book yet (should be here tonight). But then again, I care less about the 30 seconds of shock, and more about the couple hundred pages around it that LED to the moment. HOW it happens (and why, etc) is more important than knowing that it DOES happen.

Unless it's a gimmick thing like the Sixth Sense, the spoilers don't really matter to me. Enjoy the story.
So why do we have spoiler code? We just had a thread about when to use them and stop using them. The consensus was that we should stop when a book hits the 6 month mark. This novel hasn't been out six minutes.

And no offense to the poster who just joined three days ago, if you don't know how to use a function, wouldn't it be wise to find out how before to do that before dropping something like that in a novel this new. I just think that we shouldn't start a precedence.

If not then we shouldn't bother with spoiler code at all. Here's a link to the thread about spoilers.
