This is a review I should have written a long time ago, however being convinced that I `just wasn't that into Harry Potter' left me completely oblivious to the full extent of this story, until now. I finished this book one hour ago and I will now consider myself, a full-fledged crazy fan, only ten years later than everybody else. Enjoy.

Title: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Reading time: 2 days
Rating: 9 ½ / 10

Its no secret that J.K.Rowling has an imagination we'd all like to take credit for, however I don't think anyone expected, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, to be as captivating as it was. I, for one, could not put it down. Only after hours of reading would I finally give in to my chronic back ache and or droopy eyelids.

Having been with these characters since they were 11, you already know what you're getting. You feel like you know the score. But what you don't expect is how the unraveling of the story brings you closer to the characters you feel like you know so well. You experience they're conflict when confronted with riddles and clues, you experience them dealing with battle and loss, and amongst this, you experience they're everyday teenage angst as they deal with some long overdue love. I no what your thinking, that they've done these things in the others books too, but I can safely say, never like this. Never in a way that has you glued to your seat, soaking in words like they were crack.

For me Harry Potter has been a constant in my life, for as long as I can remember pointing at old buildings and asking my Mum if I'd found Hogwarts, so reaching the end was always going to be emotional. But I never expected that saying goodbye to Harry, Ron and Hermione would be like losing three old friends.

I read some of the reviews and i felt moved to right my own one. Firstly i would like to say yes the book is more adult than Jk's previous books but i think people are missing the point it is a natural progression not only for the characters but the readers who have grown up with Harry Potter! In my humble opinion this book and all the Harry Potter Books are classics and will stand the test of time. Right back to the book i found it just as avidly a page turner as the previous ones. yes perhaps some of the storylines could have been fleshed out a bit more, but it is easy to criticise, i found this book hugely enjoyable and very uplifting and a triumph of the obvious love and effort JK has put into writing it. I think the story and the many themes running through this book and the previous ones such as the importance of family, a human life, being true to yourself, self sacrifice, never giving up hope, friendship, Love etc... are all things that resonate now and in the future. I cannot thank JK enough.

Having read the whole Harry Potter series twice I still don't think I am either a fanatic or expert. What I can say is that Deathly Hallows is the best book I have ever read and it concludes what is a compelling series of books.

I finished Deathly Hallows for the second time last night and could happily pick it up and start reading it again.

Amazing how some book can be so good that when you've finished them you get filled up with a sadness and nostalgia that you cant describe. this is one of them.
absoloutly gripping from the first sentence to the last, harry potter and the deathly hallows completes harry's journey in the wonderful, sometimes sad, incredibly dangerous world of magic.
unlike the other books, this novel is full of destruction, death and loss. It doesnt even have the spirit-lifting moments of humor for us to depend on. however, i think this book is enough fast moving that you dont think about it too much and you just become engrossed with the charecters lives. to tell you the truth i find it impossible to fault this book. a 100% must read, and best harry potter ever.

By Jeremy Walton TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Aug. 2007
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Just about everyone, it seems, has been on the journey with Harry Potter over the past ten years - eagerly awaiting the next installment, devouring it as soon as it appears, and then mulling over the implications, twists and clues as the HP universe takes shape in their minds. I found this final book is a richly satisfying conclusion to the story - exciting, moving and intriguing.

The tight-rope that JKR walks as she endeavours to mix adventure, mystery, morality, emotion and humour into her tale (all the while having to contend with the breathless anticipation of her vast reading public) is almost impossible to stay upright on - to be sure, I thought there were some wobbles here as characters get shunted around locations in a somewhat unrealistic fashion - but her achievement in having captivated our attentions for so long with such a great work of imagination can't be denigrated. This is a fine ending to a wonderful story.

The final Harry Potter book finishes the story perfectly. It charts Harry's attempts to destroy the remaining horcruxes in his attempts to finally defeat Voldemort, along with Ron and Hermione. I'll avoid spoilers. With this book, Rowling has produced a masterpiece. The narrative is tightly woven, providing intense storytelling while weaving together all the unfinished story threads from previous books, as it hurtles towards the climactic battle within Hogwarts itself. The ending itself is brilliant, and once you have read it, you will find it hard to imagine it finishing differently. The storytelling is simply excellent.

It's certainly a dark book; this can't be denied. The world Harry now lives in is almost indistinguishable from the Hogwarts of the first book. Rowling devotes little time to the amusing details, like moving portraits or wizarding sweets, which filled earlier books, and instead we are presented with a bleak world, ruled over by a tyrannical Ministry of Magic. Harry must fight even to survive on a daily basis. But the darkness isn't, as some reviewers suggest, a criticism. With this book, the series, like Harry, comes of age. Gone (thankfully) is the constantly moody Harry of books V and VI. The Harry of this book, while not without flaws, has matured to face the challenge ahead.

The notion that anyone is purely good or pure evil is challenged here more than ever before. Voldemort's supporters show moments of compassion, while Harry's supporters, and none more so than Dumbledore, show elements of evil. The bond between Harry and Voldemort is closer than ever. But even so, Harry is able to prove himself more heroic than ever before. It has been suggested that each book deals with an important life lesson.
