Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
(No Spoilers)

It's midnight on Sunday evening. My copy of the final installment of Harry Potter arrived Saturday afternoon, and I just finished reading the last page. I refuse to give any details about the book because I want each of you to have the chance to read it spoiler-free like I did. (Although my oldest son ran through the house shouting out spoilers he had heard from someone. I was far enough along in the book at the time to know that only one thing he said was even true! The rest, bogus.)

Let me just say, I liked the book. So many questions were answered and the story held my attention to the very last page. For those of you with young children, I will say there is some strong language you might want to be aware of or perhaps edit out if you are reading it aloud. But overall, the book was well written and satisfying.

My poor husband has been begging for the book all day, so now that I'm finally done, he's starting to read, despite the fact that it is after midnight!

For any of you who don't yet have a copy, here's a great price through amazon.com.

At least he didn't stop my husband and one of the other boys from reading it already. Theh other two will probably listen to the CDs as they read along, so I'm sure everyone will finish the book DESPITE him!

Hey, that IS a good price! I must be the only person on the planet who hasn't yet got a copy. Have been sliding my eyes past all the spoilers out there. Am heading for Amazon right now. So thanks, Lu Ann for the tip. Glad I found your blog.

Anne,
You're welcome. Since you're British and I assume you still have friends or family there I must ask, is the frenzy as wild in England over Harry as it has been here in the U.S.?
