Wow. Talk about an intense conclusion to a 7 book journey. I still enjoy how the students come into their own in this story. I miss the time spent at Hogwarts, but it is nice to see Harry, Ron, and Hermione strike out on their own and try to figure things out without a safety net.
Despite the length, I read this straight through (again), because it’s a hard story to stop mid-stream. There’s just so much tension and uncertainty that I fret endlessly, despite already knowing how it ends.
I love this series. I don’t think I will ever have read it enough times to satisfy myself. I don’t even care that every time I reread it means I’m not reading 7 new books, because I don’t miss the worlds I don’t know. But I do miss this world, especially when I let too many years pass before rereading it again.
