Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I hated the epilogue! "All was well" is a poor ending, way to abrupt. She ended all 6 other books in a better way, weather it was "Like Hagrid said, what would come would, and he'd have to face it when it did" or something along the lines of PoA "They walked out into the muggle world together" Anything similar to these...but "All was well" ?! No! no! no! I thought it was cheesy how Harry and Ginny named their kids Lily and James, the only thing I liked about that epilogue was Albus Severas and what Harry said to him about it not mattering what house he went into because the bravest man he knew was in Slytherin... that was cool. But the rest...was yes, like a bad fan fiction.
George's death was moving and the actual death was well written I thought, the way it said the ghost of his last laugh still etched on his face...but we didn't get to see anyones reactions except how Harry felt and that Mrs Weasley was sobbing over his body, but what about George?! All it said was George was knelt by his head, I really wanted to see George's reaction. Dobby's death was moving too and well written, Tonks and Lupin dying was sad...
I loved the Pensive memories of Snape and Dumbledore and then Snape and Lily. It was superbly written. I felt heart broken for Snape, and he ended up being the tragic hero.
To be honest for a large majority of the book, I found it hard to "get into" But sooner or later the great parts came that kept me captivated.
I liked how Kreature was nice now, it showed how a little respect goes a long way.
It was titled 'The Deathly Hallows' but as me and my friends have discussed, the Hallows didn't really play a huge part. The wand and stone were used, and the cloak was used quite a lot, but it's not like the Hallows were the climax of the novel.
All in all it was a fantastic book, if only that epiloge had been better..

Re: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I'm wondering who wrote this. Care to identify yourself?
It was Fred who died, not George btw.
I didn't find the book hard to get into, but I wasn't in the "can't put it down" camp either.
