About Harry Potter yet? Has everyone on the planet who is going to read it, read it by now?
Loki sez: I am infinitely more interesting than that boy, but scroll down if you must.
Thor sez: BEWARE! Spoilers below!

When Jason was finished and handed the book to me, all he would say was that he was satisfied with the ending. I was also. I thought it was very well done, excellent pacing and I felt, like many have said before me, as if I'd been on a run away roller coaster ride.
I think JK Rowling finished off the series perfectly.
Going into it, I had a couple of theories. One was correct, a few were close.
First, I always had faith that Snape was a good guy. I wasn't really sure why, as he lay dieing, he told Harry to look at him. Later we learned Snape had been in love with Lily since they were children and as we all know, Harry had Lily's eyes. That gave me a wee lump in my throat.
Second, I thought Draco was going to step up and do something heroic for the good guy's side. There is a vast difference between being a school yard bully and actually embracing evil and watching people be murdered. I thought he'd defy his father and reject the dark side.
I didn't like, however, his family's whimpering do-nothing collapse. Although you gotta give Momma Malfoy credit for saving Harry near the end.
Third, I knew Neville was going to step up and do something great. I wasn't sure what, perhaps give his life for Harry's. But I was very proud of him, he did step up and made it possible for Harry to do what he had to do.
I was very upset about Dobby though. More than any of the humans that died. I don't know why, his character irritated me most of the time.
If you didn't mean to read this and I've ruined your Deathly Hallows experience, well tough toe nails, I warned you like three times!
