“It is with bittersweet sentiments that I am writing this, and, having just finished the seventh and final Harry Potter, I feel both satisfied and strangely empty. Ultimately, Deathly Hallows is a gratifying conclusion to an unbelievable series that JK Rowling has created. However, it also signifies the end of the anticipation, which many of us have held onto for years, waiting for this book! I feel strangely sad, there will never be another "new" Harry Potter to wait in line for at the stroke of midnight. I suppose solace lies in the fast that the series will always live on for future generations of readers to enjoy. It seems that, with the HP series, JK Rowling not only created the world of Harry, Hermione, and Ron for us, but also a chance to take part in an amazing cultural phenomenon that has captured the hearts of millions, ultimately uniting many different people, much like Harry himself succeeded in doing. DH is brilliant and complex and it has been a joy to watch the characters grow into adulthood.”
