Harry Potter 7: The Deathly Hallows

Yesterday, I bought the last book of Harry Potter series. Its seventh book is called The Death Hallows. Being so determined and insisted in bought the book with locket-black-cover version, I made several calls to Periplus all over Bali to keep 1 copy for me (the caricature-cover version looks a bit kiddo honestly). Finally, I got it from Periplus Mal Bali Galleria by luck (there's only 1 left when I called them :D).
Got home at 7.30pm, took a super-quick shower, warmed up the Cinnamon Buns and made a cuppa tea, precisely on 8pm I sit still opening The HP book page by page.
Finished it at 2.45am (the very next day) kinda slower reader huh...(607 pages in over 6 hours and 45 minutes :p).
Honestly, the whole story apart of the last-non-number chapter is great... The climax and anti-climax were threaded nicely by Mrs. Rowling. A lot of surprise especially when it reached to the Snape's death part. How love can move people like that? Nobody knows, Nobody knows... Love is the magic itself, I think.

The last chapter seems not in the right place. But, maybe Mrs. Rowling just want to make a good closing with a happy ending story. I'm pretty sad to know that this book is her last book of Harry Potter.

Hmmm...the big question is, whether there someone could beat her reputation as the Best children-story author in the following years? or Mrs. Rowling still keeping another cool stuff in her manor to surprise her fans?? We'll see...we'll see
Have you read the whole series of Harry Potter's? Do you realize that:
  1. The page number of the 6th book and the 7th book is exactly the same. It has 607 pages each.
  2. Defence Against the Dark Art seems really jinxed. No DADA teachers would last till the end of the study term.
  3. Hmmmpphh....anyone would add my list? Please, feel free to do so... :)
