    But I do have one question...

    I saw no traces of someone that never used magic before using it in this book. Can anyone help me?

    I think that the reason is that the quote was from several years ago and JK Rowling just changed her mind or something, I feel like I heard that in an interview somewhere!

    I agree, i found nothing of the sort as well.

    It's a good read.

    Yes, all 3 were signed for the last book, including Bellatrix (Helena Bonham Carter) a favorite actress of mine!

    I haven't read all the way through yet but I was disappointed that (do not read if you haven't gotten through the entire book yet!)

    George wasn't in the epilogue. Perhaps he could have been there with a family and a son named Fred to honor his brother. For someone to lose a twin and then not get any more mention seems a bit careless to me. I guess that's where Hollywood can take over and add in a scene since they like to do that anyway.

    I agree Archie. Spoiler alert. Avoid unless you have finished the book.

    In the epilogue chapter they talk about Teddy (Lupin & Tonks son), snogging with their cousin Victoire. I wondered if she was George's daughter. I feel she tied up most of the story lines but not Georges.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Book #7

    OK, I just finished as well.....and maybe my feeling of disappointment is because this fabulous series is finally at an end....

    Anyway, I did enjoy the book, many loose ends were tied up. But here's a question I have that came up in this book: Do not read if you haven't finished the book!

    Click to see Spoiler:
    Were Harry and Voldemort related? Voldemort's family said they had the ring (the stone of resurrection) because they were related to Perevell...and it's also revealed that Harry is a descendent as well! Were they distantly connected?

    I also felt that the epilogue could have tied in more of our beloved characters. I am so glad that the trio survived, but I had been preparing myself for the worst and the resulting carnage was much milder than I had dreamed up!


    ETA: I read the book straight through without reading the last few pages/words before hand. Incredibly proud of myself for that!

    ETA (again): OK, I may be double and triple posting until someone else finishes and is willing to talk about it! I still have some unanswered questions!

    I finished about 4am last night. It was a fitting end, I thought, but it seemed to ramble on with no purpose at times in the middle. I wasn't disappointed, though, and found it good overall.
