Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Initial Thoughts

I thought it was perfect. I was surprised many times, even by things I was expecting (like with Snape), because she wrote it much better than I could begin to guess. Death after death hit me hard, but I'm exceptionally emotional... and I think it needed to happen. I think this book is the most powerful; more wonderful than I could imagine. Though now I feel like I've been ripped open, that's what it needed to be. What I needed to feel... So, yes... this book is my favorite.

Harry Potter has been with me since 1999, and he has been my best friend through everything. And perhaps that sounds silly and pathetic, but I don't care. I mean every word. Harry not only inspired me to read, but also to write, now one of my most cherished dreams. And now it feels like I've lost my best friend. And while he survived, I'll only see him in memories. And that is a very painful thing.

Hopefully, in a few more days, I can get a better, full collection of thoughts. But right now I'm far too emotional.
