I think that the naming choices made were overkill, but I like it none the less. Its really nice to know that things were working out, they were all still friends, Draco wasn't a complete backstabber, and that Hogwarts was the way it was always intended to be, once again.
I think the Epilogue *had* to have a different tone. The whole 7 books have been based on conflict, the ever-present and evolving threat of Voldemort that was finally put to rest in the final battle. The epilogue did have a fairy-tale feel to it because the conflict was gone. Harry had what he always wanted, his own version of his vision in the Mirror - a loving family. Happily ever after is always a little boring...

Re: The Epilogue -- What did you think?

yeah it was good to know that those people came out ok, and was cool to hear about the kids, but I really want to know what happened in the immediate few years after. Did they finish school, what jobs if any do they have, how did those next yearly years of all their courtships turn out, what about everyone else. Who's headmaster and who's teaching at hogwarts, ect. ect. I think we shall require another book, lol.

"Snape is vindictive, he's cruel. He's not a big man," she insisted. "But he loves. I like him, but I'd also like to slap him hard." - JK Rowling on Snape and I tend to agree with her.

"It's like crack" - Jason Isaacs refering to the addictiveness of Harry Potter

Re: The Epilogue -- What did you think?

I think it might be very interesting if only there was a way to do a sort of poll on the Epilogue -- not to try to prove it is good or bad -- but to see if people's evalutions tend to correlate at all with age, gender, school or profession, quest, favorite color , other books they like, etc. It's interesting how the views range from one extreme to the other -- loved it, really disappointed, in between.
