This book for me is the best of the Harry Potter books and is my favourite of all time. I wasn't expecting it to end how it did and I admire JK Rowling for sticking to the end that chose. I have heard reviews saying this book lacks the excitement of previous books. This is simply not true, it has joy, heart break and humour sometimes on the same page.

JK Rowling is a genius!

AWWW. Its over. what will I read now?

First, Id like to congratulate J.K., on finishing this spectacular series of books.

Then Id like to say WOW! this book was really, really good, yet really sad.
My favourite chapter was "A Flaw In The Plan".Probably the most exciting peice of litriture I will ever read, about the battle between the students of Hogwarts, the Death eaters and Voldemort himself.

This book is filled with so many near-escapes that I nearly wet myself, and so many great jokes that I nerly wet myself.Again.

I LOOOOOOVED IT!!!!!!

The waiting is over, and Harry does not disappoint. A remarkable finale building to a dramatic and satisfying conclusion. Celebrating the virtues of courage and friendship, loyalty and honour, bound in a story that is certain to remain timeless. JK Rowling has, in this marvellous set of books, created nothing less than a Teaching Tale for the 21st Century.

Eventhough I'd heard about the spoilers online before this book even got published, I waited until the 7th book of Harry Potter came in print. The wait was VERY much worth it. This book wraps up the stories of every character that has ever appeared in the series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of my favorite of the whole sequel!!!

It's disappointing that the series had to end and this book had a bit of a "tying things up" feel to it. It was ok though, if a little too long. She'll write another one based on the children revealed in the epilogue, i'd say!

Harry Potter is an oddity in the world of literature, few characters have spanned so much work based on one singular story and fewer have captured the imagination of the world in such a fashion. Due to this, the story and outcome of the 7th and final book is almost of an organic nature, it is beyond criticism as the imagination dedicated to the story is such it feels like any direction Rowling took it in, was meant to be.

With this however, the book feels somewhat rushed, not all questions that obsessed Harry Potter fans wanted answered, are answered. Rowling has said that there will be no need for a prologue to the books as the past is mentioned in detail, but I felt let down. What of Harry's other family? His grandparents, what did his Dad and Mum do in the war, they had apparently escaped Voldemort 3 times - what happened there? And most importantly i feel, what happened to the Dursleys? Ignored after they were whisked away to "safety".

Many questions of the sort are not answered and the ending is clearly different to what JK Rowling had initially intended - she admitted as much that she had changed it. Some elements - a few deaths - are glossed over whilst some escapes are not mentioned. Also the epilogue, is despicable, it is a travesty to all Harry Potter fans who would have wanted basic questions such as, what jobs did so and so get? What happened to the Order of the Phoenix, what happened to the death eaters and so on answered. A happy ending was predictable, but why did it have to be so happy and the aftereffects so glossed over?

The story itself runs surprisingly smoothly, judging that Harry Potter and his two sidekicks had no idea what they were doing and judged a lot on guesswork, also that the story took a year to conclude, i never felt like it was rushed or stalling. That is its strength. Also that characters from previous books that were seemingly overlooked in the film series - Dobby, the goblins, the centaurs - were brought in again in the final book with impressive necessity.

In conclusion, a great book, brilliant story. But Rowling could have taken another 50 pages to explain a few things more clearly, especially in the rushed and almost "fake" epilogue that will draw criticisms not just from those who are 'obsessed' with the series. For this, it drops a star.

Having enjoyed the series, and particularly enjoyed "order of the phoenix", I was worried that the final book in the series would fail to live up to the promise of the earlier books. I am delighted to say that the book starts strongly, and wraps all the disparate threads of mystery together in a most thrilling climax. No spoilers here! Just wanted to say - brilliant way to end a most enjoyable series. Well done, JK!
