HP Spoiler Week, Question 3

Spoiler Alert!!!

Spoiler Alert!!!

A lot has been written in blogdom about the epilogue. So, what did YOU think? Was it sappy? A fitting end? Not enough? Opinions, please, and why do you feel the way you do??

I was "satisfied" with the epilogue. As a complete bookworm and lover of all things Harry Potter, I could critique it for days on end, but I'm not the writer and I really don't want to do that. There were certain things I was glad Rowling included, for example the names of Harry and Ginny's children, the representation of an understanding between Harry and Draco, and the update on Neville. I would have loved more detail, such as who the new headmaster of Hogwarts was, what Hagrid was up to, etc. etc. etc. And of course I would have rather Teddy be heading off to school with his parents watching, but we've gone over that several times already. I read the epilogue slowly, crying the whole time, but with a big smile on my face. I was satisfied and happy. No more critique needed.

Oh well, as you said, the info was very entertaining to read, and still gave out enough for people who wanted to skip directly to epilogue first (Yes, I know one or two such people).

JKR told some more details in a chat, and there she told what Harry, Hermione and Ron were doing professionally and so on. Have you read that?

Yes, right after I wrote this post I found a link through Fuse #8's blog that gave me all the answers I was searching for. Thanks for the tip!
