Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It's not just me, right? This book is rubbish, isn't it? I know I'm not the biggest Harry Potter fan under the sun, but I enjoyed all the other books, and would actively rep for The Prisoner of Azkaban as being a really good and genuinely quite creepy children's book. But, man, this is a tedious, overlong, confused book. It really pisses away the whole build-up and, as William rightly points out, contains one of the worst epilogues ever.

It does have a long and boring middle section with a lot of "depth" (measured by how much I wanted to smack him around the head) which might as well be delineated by a dashed line, a drawing of some scissors and the legend "cut here please, screenwriters".

Yeah I was annoyed by it too. Also because I had figured out the big 'ohmygod' moment in this book halfway through the previous book. I'm not bragging, an 'ohmygod' moment should be true to itself.
