Thread for those who have read Deathly Hallows (SPOILERS!!!!!)
So, I've finished! And, wow. It's just such a weird feeling to be done. But, I loved it. Sooo much. I've read a bunch of people complaining about it, but I don't care. It was great.

I am soooooo sad about Fred. The twins are two of my favorite characters. And, how great was George about him being saintlike.

Neville completely kicked butt. How amazing and great and wonderful he was. And, as for kicking butt, go Molly!! "You're not taking my daughter, you b*tch!"

And, even though it was sort of short and the names were...interesting, I liked the epilogue. So sue me, I'm a romantic, I like happy endings.

Kreacher leading the house elf army was awesome.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!

I finished it at 1:15 this morning (in Australia)... I cried at least 7 times through the whole book.

I bawled when Fred died, cried when I found out both Remus & Tonks had died (Surely Harry had to be getting images of poor little Teddy and him being parentless), was hugely releived as Harry went through Snapes memories, BAWLED as Harry walked towards his death, and from there on in, basically snivelled my way though the rest of the book.

The final fight scene was amazing!

And Kreacher!! GO KREACHER!!! :D

And Hagrid, walking through the forest, carrying Harry.. having a go at the Centaurs!!! WOO!!!

The epilogue was a good 'foresight'... although, it has left me wondering about the in between bit...

Oh, I cried so hard reading this - mostly when Snape died and his memories. I cried again when Harry told his son that Snape had been one of the bravest men he had known. But oh, was I happy about that, because my Snape theories were right on!!! George's ear kind of freaked me out, honestly, and PERCY!! I have never been so happy to hear from him, and he made a joke!!**GASP!!**
lol I cheered out loud for Molly - my husband thought I was nuts! I was really glad that JKR didn't decide that Malfoy and the trio had to be friends after they saved him. The curt nod on the platform was perfect - it made the ending a little less Disney. lol KREACHER!!! I was so excited to see him at the end! I'm glad he stayed with Harry. My husband is reading right now, and most hasn't sunk in yet. I loved it, I can't wait to see what everyone else thought!

I think that I am still in shock over the whole thing! I cried, I laughed and I am just stunned. I can't believe it's done. Now what?!?!?! Oh, start to listen to it on cd and then read the whole series over again.

I too was correct in my Snape theory as well as my shipping wishes!

I just finished the book. Wow. Just... wow.

My big sister (being the saint that she is) let me read the book first, and it's so annoying, because I want to discuss it with her. AAAAUGGGGGG!!!!

Okay. I'm calm now ^_^

I loved the entire thing, but my favorite moments were when Neville was acting all cool-like for the DA, when Percy was acting all cool-like for his family, and when Kreacher was finally being nice. But I have to say, My absolute favorite part was Mrs. Weasly soon-to-be infamous line: "YOU'RE NOT TAKING MY DAUGHTER, YOU B*TCH!!!"

DreamWeaver, as long as your sister isn't "saintlike."

Misstialouise, while I'm the saddest over Fred's death, Dobby's death hit me the hardest emotionally at that moment. So sad. :(

And thank goodness Ron and Hermione got together. Took ya long enough, JKR.

I just got done reading this book and wow she has really done a great job. I am glad that Ron and Hermione, Harry and Ginny got together. I wish it wasn't over I will miss Harry but I am so happy that she didn't kill him off.

Just finished it!

Oh man, I cried every time someone "good" died: Hedwig, Mad-Eye, Dobby, Fred, Lupin, Tonks... even Snape! (Did I miss anyone?) I bawled when Dobby died! He's my favorite! (I am so disappointed they have left him out of the 4th and 5th movies!) I am glad she didn't "kill off" any of the main three. I think it woud have been too traumatic!

Yay, for Kreacher, and Snape! I knew they couldn't be all that bad, especially Snape! Neville is a hero! Good for him, since he was almost "The Chosen One"! Molly's line to Bellatrix was classic! Ron and Hermonine kissing furiously when when Ron suggested they save the Hogwarts house-elves, love it!

I loved all the "minor" references to the other books! Anybody else catch Herminone's line to Ron about "Are you a wizard, or what?" when he was trying to find out how to push the spot on the Whomping Willow without Crookshanks? He said pretty much the same to her when they were trying to get past the Devil's Snare in Book 1 and she was trying to figure out how to light a fire without wood!

I am so pleased with this book. It was nice to see everything "come together.
