Ticker, if you follow Mikesgirl link, there is an interview with Rowlings where she confesses that she initially wrote much more to the epilogue, but had to cut back a lot. I'm happy she did that. Sure I would have loved to know what Harry is doing now, but that is not the point of the book. I always thought it was unnecessary to add to much to close a book or movie. Let the reader interpret it. Also, no matter what she added, we'd always want to know more. I think Rowlings decision were made carefully and were very smart.
