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

Harry Pottera nd the Deathly Hallows

I’m not going to say too much about Deathly Hallows – I reread this when not feeling to well, which would probably affect how I did or didn’t enjoy the book.

The last installment of the Harry Potter franchise, Deathly Hallows pulls everything together, eventually, and after an epic battle, where Harry finally works out what Dumbledore has been trying to get him to work out for himself, the happy ending everyone wanted, sort of arrives. There are, however some notable absences at the end of the book. I won’t detail them – just in case you haven’t read the book yourself yet, but the deaths of some characters do dampen the triumph somewhat, which I believe was deliberate on the part of J.K. Rowling. Yes, Harry won, but at what cost?!

Often slow moving – the book does cover a lot of ground and angst as well as a lot of soul searching and agonising.

I did enjoy the book, despite what my comments above may sound like, and I’m definitely looking forward to the movie in November!
