This post contains spoilers. Though if you haven’t already read or finished the book then you probably don’t care about the spoilers anyways. The warning was for those unfortunate people who somehow could not get the book thanks to pre-ordering services or something like that.
Harry Potter. Harry frikkin’ Potter. I bow down, Jo.
Ok, I was unhappy with the epilogue of the book. The only thing I did not like. I mean it is one thing not knowing the joke about the Hag, Healer and the Mimblus Mimbletonia; and another not knowing what Harry, Ron, and Luna end up becoming. They could end all end up working for SPEW and we wouldn’t know about it. So much for “There will be no need for anymore books, all questions will be answered”. Though now notice the use of the word ‘was’. Jo has confirmed that there will be a Harry Potter encyclopedia which will have a lot of things she wanted to include in the books but couldn’t. It will also have information on what paths the wizards and witches chose.
It has been a long journey. I really don’t feel like making this a sad post. Many would have considered Harry going to his Voldemort as the strongest event in the book. I consider the death of Dobby to be the strongest one. I have never read anything so powerful. I mean I was just not prepared, think of all that he had done; then die. No hellos, no goodbyes. I mean I always thought that Lupin would die (though I admit that I was a bit unsure after he married and had Teddy- probably that is why Jo killed Tonks too)
This book took me the longest to read. I did not sleep the night before (was in a car for six hours to get the book), it is not really easy to read in a car (on the way back). I was reading this really slowly, and I am proud that I could foresee many things that happened in the book.
To cut the crap, it was a great book and I am sad.
