Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Review

Title: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Author: J.K. Rowling

Book: (Harry Potter, #7)

Pages: 759

Rating: 5/5

So after finishing the sixth book I immediately picked up the seventh one and started reading knowing I wouldn't be able to read anything else until I finished the series. I can never concentrate on another book when I have all the books in the series. It's probably just me that does that...I loved the way the author finished the series! Great ending to a great series!
Harry Potter is about to turn seventeen and now the Dursleys are in danger. So they leave Harry behind to go into hiding where they will have no further contact with him. Harry leaves with Hagrid while the other wizards (Hermione, Fred, George, Ron, Bill, Mad-Eye Moody, etc.) try to confuse the Death Eaters by looking like Harry. What they weren't expecting was for someone to betray them and give You-Know-Who the date of their departure. Harry and Hagrid make it to the destination narrowly avoiding being killed by You-Know-Who. They reach the Weasleys house safely but Mad-Eye is killed in the battle. :O
When the Ministry of Magic is taken over by You-Know-Who, Harry, Hermione, and Ron go on the run since Harry is wanted for killing Dumbledore. (Who on earth would think Harry killed Dumbledore??) They break into the Ministry and steal part of You-Know-Who's soul from Umbridge. (Yikes!) Luckily they get away and disappear from London when their hideout is discovered. Now that they have part of the soul they have to discover a way to destroy it.
So they go around finding and killing parts of You-Know-Who's soul. When You-Know-Who and the Death Eaters attack the school it is up to Harry to stop Tom Riddle.
Will Harry survive? Will he give his life to kill You-Know-Who? Or will Voldemort destroy everything Harry loves?
Loved the book! It really was a great ending to the book! I mean everyone probably guessed the ending before reading the book since if it ended badly the book would be terrible! It had to end this way though I hated that a few of my favourite characters died D': Oh well that's just how it was written.
