I finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. If you made a spoiler-laden post about it, and want me to read it, please link to it in the comments.

I didn't make a spoiler-laden post...but I'd be more than happy to discuss the book.

And I liked the epilogue, damnit!

I don't have a lot of specific stuff to say about the book right now. How about you? I can certainly see flaws but overall I think it was well done and a worthy end to the series. I don't know that I personally liked the epilogue but I think it was necessary.

I feel much the same way. She said she was done with the story, and she finished it.

I'm just happy that she didn't kill off Hagrid.

Liam wants to read the book, but it makes me a bit queasy to think of letting him do that. Lupin is one of his favorites. He was fond of Tonks, too.

When does it stop being literature and start becoming life?

I loved it! It was too darn long by far, and there was waaaaaayyyy too much convoluted bs surrounding the Elder wand and Dumbledore and Snape and blah blah blah ...

But Harry, Hermione and Ron. They were the heart and they won me over. They each made huge mistakes (Harry saying Voldemort out loud!) but they also each saved themselves, one another and the day. More than once.

I like that Dumbledore was humanized, de-sainted. And I am very satisfied with the endgame for Snape.

And I loved the epilogue. Mostly because people just are not 17 years old forever. Harry and Ron and Hermione grow up. I haven't seen any snarking about it, but I did see a mention of something about CF_hardcore. I can guess what the plaint is. Mine eyes they are rolling back into my head.
