'burst' is definitely a noun.
Topic: Graceful, on top, shouldn't have to

Then you should'nt have to ask. It is incorrect even if it is colloquially used.
It should have been either 'Then you shouldn't have to.' or "Then you shouldn't have asked.'

I THINK IT SHOULD BE ... arrival at Hong Kong instead of 'to' or 'in'.

I'm not familiar with this position of "though".
Help me understand.

I would've written it "Extremely unusual he was, though at that ... "

Please help with the construction.

I feel that Rowlings has deliberately written it that way to emphasize the feeling Harry had when he felt glad that it was his birthday.
