Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling (No Spoilers)

In general, I only read really really good fantasy, and this is not that. Then again, it's not as bad as, to quote Suzy McKee Charnas, "The Sword of Sha-Na-Na." There were a couple of big infodumps near the end and I really prefer those to be worked into the story, but the ending was acceptable. People you like die, but that happens in good books, too. I thought the story was fine, the usual twists and turns and such. Now that I've finished this book, I'll take them all to the Friends of the Library when I get the van back.
