First review - final episode

Some lucky bugger at the New York Times just walked out and bought a copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at a bookshop - two days before the embargo is lifted.
And must have inhaled it in order to write a review so fast:
With this volume, the reader realizes that small incidents and asides in earlier installments (hidden among a huge number of red herrings) create a breadcrumb trail of clues to the plot, that Ms. Rowling has fitted together the jigsaw-puzzle pieces of this long undertaking with Dickensian ingenuity and ardor.
