Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Warning - you can read this post and no imperative plot details will be revealed!
The end of an era arrived on Saturday - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the last in J.K. Rowling's series of Harry Potter books. I finished it yesterday after reading at all possible free moments during the week.

It was a good read, but as many Harry Potter fans will say, she could never answer ALL the questions readers have about each character and event in the book. Before I began reading, I didn't even think to look at the chapter titles. It wasn't until I started hearing snip-its of J.K. Rowling interviews that I started to take a peek back at the table of contents. Just a hint from Ms. Rowling - chapter 34 will bring sobs, both for the readers and the author after she finished writing it!

I didn't expect an epilogue, but that was a very satisfying ending to the book!

If you're a Harry Potter fan and haven't read the book, it's definitely worth your time and it was sad to see the series end, but Rowling did a fantastic job, once again, with her writing.

As a side note, Rowling as a neat interactive website that is worth checking out... make sure you have your sound on!
