Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

A review featuring Bit, age 8 (but only for two more days!)

So here we are at Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.We are finished. I'm a little sad, but mostly just cherish this experience I have had reading these books to her, and hope her brother lets me do the same thing with him.


The Story
The wizarding world is in the worst circumstances it's been in. Harry is being hunted by everyone, while he, Ron, and Hermione are attempting to hunt down the means of destroying Voldemort once and for all.

Bit's Thoughts
This is the perfect way to end the series. There are parts that make me sad, and parts that make me happy. Harry got annoying again, but made up for it in the end. A lot of stuff surprised me, but I can't say what. You should definitely read the whole series so you can read this book. It was my favorite one in the series. 

My Thoughts
I loved this book when it first came out, and I still love it. Reading it again reminded me of just how much, and exactly how superior it is to the movies. I am quite happy with how everything resolves itself, though I could happily never read the Epilogue again. I really wish she had just ended it without that. 

What Bit and I are reading now: The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman

  1. I think she wrote the epilogue to keep people from writing spin offs.

    1. Hahhaha-yeah, that didn't work out for her then. I know it is a control thing, but authors drive me nuts with their detailed epilogues. Trust your reader. Trust you did your job writing the actual novel.
