The only topic of conversation this weekend

So, I finished the book. I liked a *lot* of it. I rolled my eyes at some of it. But...


Anyone want to talk about it, pitch up in the comments. I've got an appointment with some hardcore this afternoon (oh, get your minds out of the gutter, it's rubble, I'm building a couple of walkways for my nascent vegetable garden) but aside from that my only duty today is dubbing DVDs for a couple of people.

I have so few arguments with this book (the Nazi anvils, etc) and part of the reason I loved it so much was that it was such a clean, lovely end for these characters. It felt very much to me like Harry, Ron, and Hermione grew up in this book and that JKR let them leave her like a parent would let a child leave home--with regret and sadness, sure, but with a palpable sense of joy and hope as well. Also, let's hear it for deciding to just go ahead and let The Hero's Journey arc end in a classic way instead of using it as an opportunity to be overly clever or a total showoff. not that I'm at all bitter about this trend or anything
