Personally I don't think Rowling writes battles and big action scenes all that well, at least not as well as she handles the yarn-spinning and character development. I saw no need for the big finale battle scene at Hogwarts. Figure she was influenced by the movies there, wanting to compete with/imitate LOTR. Would have preferred less big battling and more story

Agree the flitting about the countryside, not accomplishing much dragged on, too. After they finally destroyed the locket horcrux, I looked at the position it happened in the book and thought "Shit, that was half the book! They still need to get 4 more horcruxes and still kill Voldemort too!"
