OK, I finished Harry Potter a couple of weeks ago, but just haven't had time to write about it. Once again, JK Rowling has done a great job in captivating her huge audience.
Jessica, who read the book the first day, said repeatedly that this was the best book in the Harry Potter series. I am not so quick to agree. While I think that it was a great book, it got a little slow in some places, and I thought the ending was downright lousy. Not that it didn't end the way that it should. The problem was, that Rowling goes into such depth for the first 5/6th of the book and then seems to rush to wrap everything up. The ending was for me, less than satisfying. And the appendix --- well, I could have done without it. It made me wonder if we wouldn't see a new series spin off this one.
If you haven't read any of the HP series, this is not the place to jump in. But if you have been a fan of the series, you want to make sure that you do not miss this one.
