Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Pages: 607

Main Characters:
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series. This book was brilliant and was everything I wanted it to be. Good conquers evil, even though the journey to end Voldemort’s reign is hard for Harry, Ron and Hermione, they still come out on top as only best friends can. The books sees the three following Dumbledore’s final instructions in hunting down the last six of Voldemort’s Horcruxes. The task is not as easy as it sounds as a Horcrux can be any item. The quest takes Harry, Ron and Hermione into Voldemort’s mysterious past as well as finding out who Dumbledore really was before he became the Patriarch of Hogwarts School.
As I said above, this book was a brilliant ending to the series. It is full of action as Harry, Ron and Hermione risk their lives looking for the Horcruxes. The battle at the end is also amazing. I think Rowling does a brilliant job using every single character and species in the final fight between good and evil. I thought this was brilliant as it made it feel like it was all or nothing, either good wins or Voldemort rules. I was also massively impressed that Rowling managed to link events in the past books all to Harry’s last struggle with Voldemort. Events such as him looking in the Mirror of Erised, or the last attempt of Harry’s mother at protecting him from Voldemort all link up in the final conclusion of the book. The battle was a great ending to a series that has defined a whole generation of fiction readers, as well as a generation of movie lovers. I am sad that both the books and movies are over but I am glad they ended the way they did. I think Rowling has left it open for more books, possibly about Harry’s children at Hogwarts, but I think the series should end with the Deathly Hallows. Hopefully Rowling will come up with a different character and series which will mesmerise an audience of readers as much as Harry Potter did.
A great book and a great series! If you have seen the movies you should read the books. The films have done a good job of portraying the books but I feel the novel adds just abit more detail which the films didn’t have the time to include so please read them!

  1. Ahh I remember the day this came out well.. I had to share a book with 2 other girls.. It was not pretty!!!!

    1. I bet it wasn't! For some reason I was never into Harry Potter when they originally came out but I was a massive fan of the films. Then I decided to read them last year because they were voted in the Top 50 Books to read before you die. And I'm glad I did, they were amazing!
