PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE!!!!! Don’t read ANY of the reviews below mine unless you WANTSPOILERS, b/c most of them have them. There should be a rule on this site to post SPOILERALERT before writing them, b/c I just think it’s a shame for anyone to not enjoy the surprises and natural flow that comes from reading the book. You don’t have to read my review either if you haven’t read the book yet, but just so you know there aren’t any spoilers in it.
Hits every high note of the series multiple times. Great twists, that all fit perfectly with the story. I don’t think it could be any better. The last chapter was written by the amazing J.K. around the same time as the first book, and she says she locked in a drawer until she was ready to do Book 7. I think this played out very well.
Also, I love the philosophy/cosmology of the Harry Potter series, and that with that in mind, Deathly Hallows goes way beyond a simple “good conquers all” morality. In fact the complexity of the books meanings and tales are what make it feel so human, real, and timeless.
Finally, the title is really as cool of a book title as I’ve ever heard.
p.s. This is my fav Harry Potter band ever!
