I really liked it. There were some things JK could have included in the epilogue. (I do wish she had told us what they ended up doing for careers, and what happened to Luna) However, I was not disappointed. Now I am just sad it'e over.
I hate to be the glass is half empty guy but I must say, never read the books, that Harry Potter books are childlike novels. They do not cater to adults so my interest is dim.
This thread must be wonderful for young readers though. For me, I can do without it.
Some points that I did not get:
- I don't get the fact about Harry having his mum's eyes being important. What did I miss?
- There was something Rowling said about someone who would surprisingly do magic in the book right?
- And Fawkes just disappeared?
Snape loved Lily - he asked Harry to look at him while he was dying so he could look into his eyes. (he has his mom's eyes) so essentially he died looking into the eyes of the person he loved.
