    Yes. Just finished it earlier this evening.

    I feel wiped after reading it...and kind of slowly realising "Oh yes, there's a real world. Now where was I?"

    It was excellent, though emotionally draining. I think Rowling did a nice job tying all the loose ends together, and effectively voided most chances of anyone asking her to continue the tale. There were some parts that were a little hokey...like the whole wand ownership speech by Harry at the end (yes, the concept was cool, but the execution was a little drawn out). I liked the twist with the horcruxes, but I still don't think Harry deserved two chances. And I could have been happier if half the book wasn't composed of the three of them arguing and being generally bitchy. Otherwise, was great.

    I have the book, but I'm currently trying to finish number five
    Some jackass already spoiled the book for me, so I feel safe to be in here :/ I'm devastated about Lupin (my favorite character :<)and Tonks deaths, and just after having their baby, too.... -cries-

    I also liked the way she tied up all the loose ends. I agree that the arguing in the wilderness went on too long. All in all, a good tale.
