5.0 out of 5 stars speechless, 14 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) [Children's Edition] (Hardcover)
I'm a French fan and honestly reading the book in English is so much better! I won't say that this book is the best of the series but I loved it all the same. The best part being of course everything that is related to Snape. I read the book 4 years ago and I remember almost falling off my chair! No one had told me anything about the book so when I discovered the Snape part I was totally bewildered. And also relieved because I couldn't believe that such a great character had to be all bad. Alan Rickman probably had something to do with that because I can't think of any other British actor that could have given more life to that character.
I also loved the fact that the relationships between the characters and especially the three heroes become more intense and mature.
The last chapter can appear a bit childish but is a good conclusion to the saga. It might also be a good starting point to a new one, even if J.K. Rowling said "never"! (maybe she could turn into a George Lucas...)
It is so rich that reading it a second time (to make sure that I remember it well before seeing the film next month!) was really essential. Of course the discovery about Snape forces you to re-read all the books because suddenly you get the impression that you had it all wrong after all (Rowling is a genius!).
In short, I'm almost as sad as Alan Rickman that the story is over. You really have a strange feeling when you close the book for the last time (maybe not the last time... but there won't be the thrill of the novelty anymore).
