Review written for ClubReading.com by Linda

If you have recently read all six of the prior books, you might catcheverything thatRowlingputs in this book. Lacking that, or a fabulous memory, you willcertainly miss some of the endsRowlingties together.

Many of those things that don't make sense from the prior books areexplained here. And the pace is fast; it's a quick read, for all that itis over 700 pages. The books is satisfying in that we finally find outso many things, including which side Snape is on. I don't want to giveaway anything to those who want to read the book, so let's just leave itat the ending is appropriate to the tone that the books have taken. And,yes, beloved characters die. But the battles between good and evil aremore between some shades of gray, which those of us in the real worldappreciate.

All in all, a wonderful ending to a fabulous story.
