Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

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

It's a good read.

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!)Click to see Spoiler: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.
Click to see Spoiler: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.
Finally, after 22 years I got my honeymoon. Niagara Falls in February. Whats next the beach in December?
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!

Don't let the small things sweat
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.
