‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ by J.K. Rowling – Book Review

(Using this cover because it’s the best one. The one that I read had a boring cover.)

Four Out Of Five Stars ****

 

I finally made it to the end of the Harry Potter series! I started the books in January and by reading a Potter book a month I have finished the series in July.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is definatly the most serious book of of the series. Harry, Ron and Hermionie are on the run from the Ministry of Magic and Voldemort, while trying to complete the quest that Dumbledore set for them before he died. Which was to find the seven horcruxes that contained parts of Voldemorts soul.

Another reason that this book was so different from the others might be due to the fact that Harry didn’t set a foot inside Hogwarts until the very end of the book. From Book One to Book Six, Harry has been at Hogwarts, outwitting the teachers, moaning about Snape (Snape! Snape! We’ll get to him a bit later.), rolling his eyes with Ron about the general brainy-ness of Herminone, sneaking out to see Hagrid…all that good stuff.

More people died in this book. In all of the books, people have died. Important people. But in this book it was people we actually knew and remebered from perhaps ALL of the previous books.

(I’ve been looking forward to writing this bit!)
Snape!!!
WHAT? He was am amazing character. He was a triple agent! Woah! I had suspected that he liked Potters mother. Probably because i read reviews that contained spoilers, before i read the book. Never do that. So the questions stands. Should Lily have ended up with Snape or was she better of with James? Would she still have died?

The one thing that I thought was a little…off…was that Lupin and Tonks had a baby. Thats all very well, but why would you go off and leave your baby to go and fight Voldemort…Stay with the baby! So poor Harry Potter has become a godfather, just like Sirus Black was to him.

I loved the end chapter. I thought that was perfect! I watched that scene from the movie as well, and it was lovely! Ron with his belly! ha! But…Albus Severus? Bit of a mouthful isn’t it? I’m going into fangirl mode. Let’s calm it down a little.

There was just one other thing. Why didn’t they say who the new Headmaster was? I know that Neville Longbottom was a teacher, but who’s headmaster? Rather annoying not knowing. Guess we’ll never know now….
