Book Review: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows

I almost didn't do a book review for this one.  I don't know why, but I feel silly reviewing this book.  I mean I guess if you'd read the first 6 books you would enjoy this post, but otherwise it's kind of childish. 
Harry Potter is finally concluded.  It's a nail bitter too.  At least it was for me!  I couldn't put it down.  Sure it was a bit daunting, being over 700 pages and all, but it was a very quick read indeed {just shy of a week for me and I was up reading until midnight}.  Harry, Hermione and Ron set out to finish the job that Dumbledore gave them.  They travel in and out of the muggle world, the come across a handful of scary and interesting people.  They fight, the get hurt, some characters die {I will say it was not one of the main 3 though} and I was gasping aloud and in shock for the majority of the book.  We finally understand Snape a bit more too.  I can't really share more than that because I'd hate to ruin it for someone.  It sure did make me eager for the next movie.  It's going to drive me insane that the last book was broken into 2 movies though - I am already going crazy waiting!

In conclusion, I did like the way the book ended.  I was afraid that J.K. Rowling would leave the readers hanging.  I hate that.  I hate when books don't have a real finish to them.  This one did.  She made sure to tie up some lose ends and tell us where the main characters landed later in life.  Very fulfilling.  So if you have followed along with the gang, pick this one up and finish the series!  You won't be disappointed.
