Book Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (2007) by J.K. Rowling ends the series on a satisfactory note. I won’t say much in way of spoilers — although probably everyone has read the book by now — but it was as good as I could expect it to be and maybe a little better. I like that Harry, Hermione, and Ron have a challenging quest but not one so impossible that their success eludes belief. I like how characters, places and things from previous books keep popping up unexpectedly but in ways true to the story. I didn’t like the chapters with Snape’s memories nor the Kings Cross chapter with Dumbledore and Harry. They were too pat, explained to much, and deviated too much from the narrative.

So that’s that. I enjoyed the series and I enjoyed the finale, and now it is complete in a satisfying way.
