"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
2007 by Arthur A. Levine Books
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” by J.K. Rowling. Super. Super. Super. Super. Super. This is a really big book. It’s 759 pages long. I could hardly tear myself away from it to go to work and it was what I read during my dinner and long into the evening each night since it came in the mail last Saturday. It is the last of 7 books about Harry Potter. Will it really be the very last one? Yes, I’m thinking that it will be. The ending is more terrific than you can imagine.
As with the other books in the series Harry Potter circles with the most dangerous Lord Voldemort. The wizarding world teeters on the edge of death and disaster as he who must not be named (Lord Voldemort) grows stronger and stronger. This story shows the terrific courage of Harry, Ron and Hermione and of so many people they know as they go out into the world to destroy the evil that has come into their lives and into the lives of those they love. Good against evil. A really basic premise for a book, but hey, J.K. Rowling has spun the story out into 7 books and each one of them is terrific.
If this review catches your eye, start at the beginning and read them all in order. This is a very good project to embark upon.
