We finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night. I'm not going to review it or say much about it, because I know that people are still reading it, but I do want to say that it was, in many ways, even better than I thought it would be. It was certainly different than I expected, but overall better, and I am totally in awe of Rowling's skill at plotting. She's an amazing writer, and I'm sad that it's over.
I'm saving all my specific comments for the discussion group in August/September at the Scholar's Blog Spoiler Zone. I hope that you'll all join the discussion; I have a lot to say, and I'm looking forward to reading everyone else's comments, too!
