Harry Potter 7 - no spoilers!

The suspense is over--I've just finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a little less than 24 hours after it was delivered by owl...oops, I mean by the USPS. I have to say that the hype leading up to the release was *very* well deserved!

The book is extremely action oriented, with Harry, Hermione, and Ron going from bad situation to worse situation to absolutely disastrous situation with dizzying rapidity. I lost count of the times the trio were absolute goners and then pulled a dazzling escape out of thin air--well, they are wizards, after all, and so is J.K. Rowling, even more so in Deathly Hallows than in any of the previous Harry Potter books.

I won't say anything about the end except that a lot of predictions of the fandom came true...and a lot didn't! Which is about as clear as one of Dumbledore's instructions to Harry, I suppose...

Bottom line: Read it! Preferably with many, many details of books 5 & 6 uppermost in your mind. It was a wild ride. A fitting end to a historic series.

With enough fodder for the-future-of-the-wizarding-world fanfics for the HP fandom to live on and on and on...
