Ah--I'm halfway through Deathly Hollows myself---I think it's good, but it's kind of plodding along a bit...I've been told that after page 400 or so that's when things really start to cook---I've been reading it slow as I want to savor every word...this is after all, the very last book--do you feel that way too, and perhaps a bit sad that it is the last book??

Last re Harry, but hopefully not the last we'll be hearing from rowlings. I have great hopes of her. Plodding? I didn't think so at all, but I was savoring all of it- I guess its true its because it was to be the last visit to Hogwarts and all.You're probably finished by now.

I read the book in 2 days. Once I got started I had a very hard time putting it down. I loved it, though I found it gut wrenchingly sad and actually found myself getting teary in many spots. All in all I really enjoyed it.

Took me a bit longer, and I got weepy too again and again. and scared. I love the series, truly loveit. and as with so many fans, i want to go back now and read the whole gamut without interruption.

I definitely loved it. I was a little nervous going into it because it was going to be the last book, and I was so worried I would be disappointed. But I wasn't, at all, though I did cry. =p What's funny to me is how close I came to missing the whole series altogether. I usually intentionally avoid reading things that are that popular, but my best friend read the first book so she'd know if it was appropriate for her kids or not, and then loaned it to me saying "You have to read this!" and I've been hooked ever since. Now I just need to know what I'm going to read next, now that Harry Potter is over! Though I'll likely read through all the books again starting at the beginning soon, because there were some things in Deathly Hallows that I didn't quite get, and I'm thinking it's because it's been too long since I read the other books.

Reading it is so engrossing that you are literally living it- that's the quality of the writing. My hope is since she had it all laid out in full before she began her final draftthat she'll do it again with a whole new story, new characters etc, and that it will be just as terrific. I loved the book, and the epilogue capped it. Nice to hear from others who've loved it too. Thanks.
