No, I’m not going to say how it ended, as much as I want to go refer back to my list of predictions for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and say I told you so.
I didn’t get them all right anyway. I thought I might go back and give myself a grade as if it were a homework assignment— 50/60, 27/50, that sort of thing—but I realised even that might give too much away. (Though to repeat, not all were right, not all were wrong, and some were somewhere in between.)
Instead I’ll just say this: I was struck by an eerie similarity to The Matrix. One of the last chapters, King’s Cross in particular, reminded me of one of the final scenes in either the second or third Matrix movie (I don’t remember which it was). I won’t go into details lest I give something more away, but there were definite parallels.
Oh, and can I just say, corniest epilogue ever. Especially that name. Oh boy. I was hoping for something with a little more grit.
But other than that it was fantastic.
