Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Just finished reading the last volume of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (HPATDH). And to confess - in spite of the publicity surrounding the book; I was pretty disappointed. It was just not magical enough. Somehow or the other, Harry blunders along and manages to win... Hallows or Hoarcrux... Seems like JK Rowling lost the plot.... The unnecessary death of some of the key members sounded idiotic.... Anyways this being the last book of the series... All well that ends well....

But a few days before the release of the official volume, I downloaded a fake copy of the HPATDH from the internet. I don't know who the writer is - but my congratulations to him or her for writing a better story that JK Rowling. The prose was not that polished, but the plot was gripping and mature. Bordering on Harry's obsession with Ginny the book felt much better than the original one. If you have read the book; you know which book am I talking about... If not, I suggest you search the net and download the book - and surprise yourself with the ending: Dudley becoming the next dark lord....
