The Harry Potter 7 Thread (Spoilers probable)

Postby bavardage » Sun Jul 22, 2007 10:02 pm UTC

Finished reading the book 4 hours ago... the book is better than books 5 or 6, but let's face it, that isn't a huge achievment.

The plot feels really quite linear, and I found the passage of time very vague. Rowling also seems to kill off people just for the hell of it. What did Hedwig's death add at all? Harry thought about it once, and that was that.

The epilogue, I felt, was also really quite 'cheesy.'

*Not sure whether this thread is actually justified, but I hope it is different enough from the leak thread.*

The ending \ epilogue was a bit too "happily ever after" for my liking. It was ok considering the rest of the series although there was nothing extra special or any "Oh me yarm Oh me yarm!!!" moments that I was hoping for.

Guys, there are already several Harry Potter 7 threads in this very subforum.

I'd advise posting your thoughts here, although we've been whiting out spoilers just to keep things fair.

I was kind of hoping to find out the occupations of the characters during the epilogue. I mean, Harry probably became an auror, but what about Ron and Hermione? Did anything ever happen with SPEW?

And doesn't Harry have to go back for another year of school? He never took his NEWTs! Book 8 anyone? :P

There are tons of HP 7 threads.

Here and here are the two you should be posting in. Preferably the latter.
