The end of Harry Potter in Deathly Hallows

I have attended the book launch at Borders in Melbourne Central yesterday morning. I was there since 8:00 am, waiting alongside other Harry Potter fans for the first box of books to be opened by lucky little girl. I was part of long queue to purchase the book, and the queue didn't abate till the afternoon. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is clearly the most anticipated book of the decade. Finally, the question whether the 17 year old hero Harry Potter will defeat his nemesis Voldemort once and for all or will evil reign the world.

I have finished the book last night and have fully enjoyed it. I was also saddened that there won't be anymore Harry Potter after this book, but I 'll be consoled for the meantime because there are still two movies about to come out.

For my full review, click here. Major spoilers abound!

Hey Jennie! Wow, you read fast! I would've finished it earlier had I not stopped to attend a family event.

It's so sad about the deaths. I was crying especially when... for the sake of those who might not have read it yet. My ideas about what could happen was thrown out the window. It's possibly the best of all the HP books since Book 3. I guess it should as it's the epilogue.

I'm happy that Harry's story has ended, but I'll miss them terribly. I hope it won't be the last we'll see of their world though.

We're both HP fans pala. Ganda ng Book 7 noh?? I'm also sad that this is the last installment. I wouldn't mind if Rowling changes her mind and writes another one.
