Summary: Dumbledore is dead. The ministry is clueless, and Voldemort is at large. With only the faintest idea on where to search for Voldemort’s horcruxes, Harry and his friends begin a perilous journey of discovery intrigue and power. Love, Harry’s strongest defense, and the power that Lord Voldemort knows not, is no match for the danger awaiting around every tree (yes tree) in breathless anticipation. As the final battle draws nearer, despair sweeps over Harry. Who will win in the last stand good vs. evil?

Why I Started the Book:

I’m finally finished rereading the Harry Potter series! Now I’m ready for the double movies.

Likes:

  • Very little. I liked the Hallows.
  • I liked the uber wand switcheroo at the end of the novel.
  • I liked Harry’s self-sacrifice and how Hagrid carries him out of the forest. It was so sad.

Dislikes:

  • This book was so terrible. I did not imagine my dislike the first time I read this book. It read like Rowling stopped caring. In my mind the series is done at book six.
  • If you liked the epilogue of this book than I must be missing something but I think that the way that J.K. Rowling ended the book was the absolute “WORST” way to end the book. For those who haven’t read the book or are reading it I won’t spoil it for you but considering all the other great things that J.K. Rowling has done with this series I have to wonder is this really the best she can come up with? Seriously? I will never think about J.K. Rowling the same way ever again.
  • If I had to pick between Fred or George Weasley surviving. I’d pick Fred. I wish Fred hadn’t died. They’re such a pair.

Last Minute Thoughts: As I mentioned in Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix movie review their making Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows into two movies and I also stated the if they’re going to make any movie into two parts it should be book five. It’s longer and they’re probably adding a lot more to the story (hurrah!).
