Got it last night with Miss Sakura-Cosplayer (which was interesting to talk to people) and a group of my friends. It was really funny cuz we sent somebody in our group with no life about 2 hours ahead to reserve our places, so we got like first in line :shock:

After the book, we went to a short celebration party at McDonalds, then I went home and went to bed. :?

Meh, just finished the book, and must say that it was overall invigorated and had the best ending that I could have actually expected.

still gets a 4/5 though, cuz JK had a vengence for killing.

I think the amount of people who died was a fair amount. I'm not saying I liked that certain characters bit it, but come on, the main battle was huge, people had to die or it would have been stupid. I think she killed off enough to satisfy that, without going overboard.

I think it's one of the better books of the series, and I really liked the ending :3

The begining was fine, the ending was fine... the middle was well over 200 pages of repeditive bickering over not knowing what to do. Most of the other books have fit that same pattern, but them actually being in school allowed for other mundane "filler" ellements to filter through to flesh things out... Without that it was even more boring and frustratingly repeditive than usual.

Voldemort: "Dumbledore never told you what happened to your father."

Harry: "He told me enough. He told me you killed him."

Voldemort: "No, I am your father."

Harry: "Nooooooo!"

I have been told by many who read the book that the movie was pretty faithful to the ending. So AFAIK the books are nothing more than some whiny teenage brat standing around waiting for someone to come save his ass. If you want teenage angst by people who can barely wipe their own ass without help then go read livejournal instead.


The author went from single mom on welfare to millionaire. Deus ex machina is probably her life's philosophy.
