Deathly Hallows

No spoilers ahead :)

I was very happy after finishing the book, not because of the ending, but, simply coz the book neatly tied up (almost) everything and is certainly the best book of the series in terms of taking the story forward and giving it an exciting end. After 2 super duds ("Phoenix" and "Prince" - which I still feel should have been compressed into one) this one lives up to the expectations. The book is another 760 pager, but unlike previous bulky ones (4, 5, and 6) it is completely racy.

Of course, there are plot holes here and there, some subplots don’t get a closure, unnecessary characters abound and the epilogue is a huge disappointment. But overall the book is satisfying.

And to those with weak hearts: there are deaths - painful deaths, and not just 2 as Rowling claimed. Actually, 2 2 many more than just 2. So if you cried when Sirius died then you better be prepared right from the start.
