J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. There are so few books that reduce me to my inner 10-year old. I gulped this down (didn't everybody? I heard from several people they thought there might be some spell causing the book to bind to their fingers untill finished), but I kept getting too stressed out and had to walk around the house flapping my hands before I could stand to read anymore. I cried through the last few chapters, just because it was over....(Neal Stephenson is the only other living author who does that to me). I won't say much, but I did see a strong reflection of the Lord of the Rings in the last two books.

Just got back from Beaulah Beach Camp and the book was being stolen by every child, it kept changing hiding places...sounds almost like a book that might be at home at Hogwarts...the mysteriously moving book!

My child was lucky to be fed during my reading of Deathly Hollows.

What a fantastic plotter Ms. Rowling is! I was amazed at how many plot strings she tied together in the final book. I could, however, have done without the epilogue.
