I've read some outstanding books in my life, but the entire Harry Potter series is simply the best set of books I've ever read. It is well written, interesting, amusing, fast paced and just never gets boring. I wasn't interested in it when my son read it as each came out, and don't know why I decided to pick them up in the first place, but this year I decided to see what the fuss was about. I ended up reading the whole series this year, and am sorry that I have finally finished. The Deathly Hallows, as the finale, did not disappoint me. The end was wound up nicely and the time it took to read was well spent. Can't praise it highly enough.
