Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7) - J. K. Rowling9

Review :: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Written by Elke

First of all, let me say that I started to read the Harry Potter series in order to improve my English (although I've exceeded the proper age easily at that time already). My idea was, that children's books were easier to understand than those for adults. So far so good. What I didn't expect was, that the books would be quite unique so that I've re-read them ever since I've laid hands on the first one. It has been described before from persons who are certainly more able than I am, that Ms Rowling has created something special - a world which is not that far away from the ordinary one but still different, full of magic. However, the inhabitants of the other world have to struggle with common problems, too: distrust against each other, enviousness, lovesickness, .... Those are problems where no magic can help. To be honest, I like reading children stories or books for young adults. Somehow it seems to be more suitable when an author invents fantasy worlds for children than for adults - they already live in an own world full of wonders. I liked the idea of describing a young wizard being educated, the daily life in a boarding school, his growing-up with all implications of adolescence and of course the encounters with his adversary. As a conclusion I can only say, that I loved all the books - and still do. So my recommendation can only be: read the series and enjoy the story how it develops through all the books.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry is waiting in Privet Drive. The Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his supporters knowing – if they can. But what will Harry do then? How can he fulfil the momentous and seemingly impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him with?

Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort’s remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety, and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him.

In this final, seventh installment of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling unveils in spectacular fashion the answers to the many questions that have been so eagerly awaited. The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace, confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling, whose books will be read, reread and read again.
