Review
Words cannot describe how perfect this ending is for the perfect series. It feels pretty awesome to be alive when classics are written. I have no doubt that 100 years from now, people of all ages will be just as in love with Harry Potter as we all are now. JK has bestowed on the world a masterpiece.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows
