Finishing up the last book in the Harry Potter series was quite the bitter sweet moment. While the conclusion of the numerous pages I’ve read was great, I was also bummed that there’s no more to be read. Kinda got a little attached to some of those characters.
The Deathly Hallows was great, and probably my new favorite book. I found myself reading through many long stretches at a time, falling into the unproductive trap of just one more chapteritis (think I just made that word up).
Wasn’t expecting so much loss along the way however. I was really genuinely bummed to hear of the unfortunate fate of so many characters that I had gotten to know so well through previous reading. While it was a real shame for such loss, it really did add to the weight of just how much was at stake.
All the twists and turns towards the end were very well written. With the majority of them catching me off guard at times. The battle for Hogwarts was great and probably my favorite moment.
Great stuff, worthy of all the hype.
