Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling (HP #7)

27 Jan

Its all over. I must admit I shed a fair few tears even though its my second read of the book. I read it for the first time immediately when it was released and I seem to have forgotten fair portions of it until reading them again.

This is definitely a far cry from the Philosophers Stone with hardly anything left in it for children to grasp. Ok its still about witches and wizards but there’s no Hogwarts, no Hagrid, no classes, no Dumbledore and no playtime for Harry and his friends. It’s a lot more a tale now of Harry’s quest for the truth about what his destiny really entails and how if at all he must defeat Voldemort.

Although the book does drag in places, I think it does help to build the tension of what you know is going to be a tremendous finale. The book is scattered throughout with deaths, some minor some not so minor. Not wanting to give too much away but some people may not have been happy with the finale thinking that perhaps JK chickened out of giving us something other than a happy ending but I have to admit I was delighted with the ending. It cleared up all loose ends and most importantly the characters got the ending they deserved. Well most of them….!
