I finished at half 10 last night since I stopped to watch Shrek 2 :D

I thought it was really good!! Loved it all! :D I got happy, sad and all that so the writiing must be good :D :D

I liked the ending and the epilogue...it was quite interesting the way she ended it as she could have done some things but she didn't (that makes perfect sense in my head :lol: )

A note to anyone intending to read the end first:
There is no point as threads are tied up continuously through the book :)
actually, from a non-linear viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff. ...

I think we should limit spoilers to PMs only

Finished the book last night! Really enjoyed it because it tied up all loose ends! I loved all the twists and my only disappointment was it ending because i didn't want to stop reading!

Well I wasn't planning to read it solidly ... but as usual JKRs writing got the better of me, finished this evening.

Excellent.

The only thing you can ask for in any book is a satisfying ending and I was thoroughly satisfied.

loved it...though I wasn't so keen on the epilogue - it was interesting but in some ways it was a bit twee

rest of the book was fab though! especially the ending - certainly didn't disappoint!

not sure if its my favourite of the books...but is certainly up there

whos placing bets that there is a spin off then :lol:

Spin offs would ruin it... but i still want there to be some! lol!

I wish they'd split the film into 2 so it would last extra long and not miss anything out! lol!

One of the best books I thought. Very well paced and utterly absorbing.
