SPOILERS (kind of)

Ok, I just finished the book. I kind of liked the ending, but there's so much missing! I really liked Snape's story, but I was hoping they'd talk about Petunia a little bit more, especially in that part where she's about to say something to Lucy before she gets on the train, and then changes her mind (she does that once with Harry as well, I think).
The Epilogue felt woefully incomplete, 75% of it is just talking about the ten thousand kids everyone spawned (Lucy, Albus, James, Hugo, Rose, Victoire, etc. etc. etc.)
She didn't mention Luna, the Dursleys, the house-elves (Kreacher, and I wanted to know more about Winky as well, we just kind of forgot about her), Dean, Seamus, and all those other people.....

I needed to read the epilogue three times before getting it Mainly because all the new characters were named after dead ones

I think at this point spoiler alerts and small text aren't necessary. Anyone who doesn't want it spoiled but is stupid enough to enter this topic by now deserves it.

maybe she forgot to include the flashback where Voldemort ripped out Lily's eyes and stuck them into baby Harry's eye sockets...

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

I like the Swedish covers.

...dude.

I think the Swedish should look into book-covering as a primary national industry.

Those covers are eye-scorching goodness.

At risking of sound like an idiot. I put of reading the last book for ages. I am too attached to characters and have been since a young age. I finally finished it and was not disappointed a bit just depressed as its supposed to be the last one.

Seconded. I was bizarrely upset when Dobby died, whereas in most books I'd be utterly ambivalent.
