Its Finally Here

Saturday morning scene at home
  • Wake up at 8.00 am - which is early for me on a Saturday
  • Go to Amazon.com and track my order
  • It shows it the package is in my City, so it will be home soon
  • Its 10.00 AM and the package is still not here
  • Its 11.00 and ding dong the door bell rings

And Voila.......

I was so happy as I tore open the package, Shekar says what if they shipped you the sixth book instead of the seventh, I gave him the dirtiest stare and told him don't even joke about it.

Grabbed the book and sat on our patio till 2.00 PM and read, ate lunch and then went back to reading. Then around 8.00 PM took break for dinner and then got back to reading at 10.00 PM and stayed up till 2.00 AM and I finished the book. No Spoilers here.... I liked the book, lot of things going on.. but still HBP is my favorite of the series.

So now I'm planning to re-read it very slowly just in case I have missed something. Little sad that the whole Harry phenomenon is over (not really they are 2 more movies and I can always re-read 1-7 ;)...).

My copy of Deathly Hallows..... looks so pristine... and I'm going to pass this on from genration to generation.. just like the Invisible Cloak.

I feel mixed about the book. A little sad and confused. I didnt understand the part about the spell bouncing back.

@taz..the elder wand belongs to the master..here the master is Harry..So when Voldy tried to do the killing curse, the wand did not obey him but backfired him..

Yeah the Encyclopedia should be interesting, although it might be underwhelming for anyone who, y'know, wants one more book (which, sadly, is a lot of Potter Fandom)

I think it's ended on a comfortably high note, and we should be happy about that.

Even more interesting is what Rowling comes up with after she's all done with Potter.
