Still no spoilers--but very satisfied
After being disappointed in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, I'll admit I was a little worried about the final book. Sure, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was a solid book that I enjoyed, but there were a lot of loose ends to wrap up. Would Rowling sacrifice pace just to get in all the details that were left open?
I'm pleased to say that I was not in the least disappointed in this book. The pacing was incredible and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is easily the best book in the series. It's a fitting ending and I'll confess to being highly satisfied.
First off, the experience of reading the book was a good one--as in the others, I laughed aloud several times. However, I also cried several times throughout the book, sometimes for grief, sometimes for joy, and sometimes because the satisfaction and thrill was so great. It was, overall, a very emotional read.
It also did a wonderful job of finishing the story. It's over and I'm not left longing for more or wondering about open-ended storylines. It's done, it was wonderful, and now it is time for another story in another world.
