Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Unspoiled comments.

A good book, it ends the story well, though not amazingly. With the different format (doesn't work on the school year) from the others it's a little bit shorter that the last couple of books and flows somewhat differently.
The hallows seem to be a rather odd inclusion though, appearing from nowhere to take up a reasonable proportion of the book. The book might have been better if less time was spent on them and more on what the other characters are doing during the time period, though admittedly that would be a bigger departure from the previous ones than the hallows.

Spoilers in white select to view; do not read past this point on RSS:

Snape's character so deserves further mention at the end though using his name is a nice touch. I wish she'd spent more time developing him in the books.
Also DD comes across in a less pleasant light though out the book, though his final conversation with Harry does a bit to redeem that.
