Spoilers Warning: This review written expecting you have read the six previous books.”Neither can live as the other survives”. After years of pondering the meaning of the prophecy, the last installment of the long-running Harry Potter series has arrived, accompanied with a lot of hype and excitement. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows concludes the series and answers all of the questions. After the death of Dumbledore and the fall of the Ministry, Harry, Ron, and Hermione go on Dumbledore’s quest to destroy the seven horcruxes and defeat Voldemort.The seventh book is dark and fast-paced while still tying up the loose knots of the story. Character development is furthered and Dumbledore’s background is finally uncovered. Hermione and Ron’s relationship lingers, as does Harry and Ginny’s. Hagrid doesn’t appear as often compared to the other books in the series and the Order of the Phoenix plays a large role in helping Harry into safety.J.K. Rowling has succeeded in writing few authors can emulate. Every individual she writes about has a past, present, and future. They’re realistic and life-like, yet they’re surrounded by magic. The Deathly Hallows is the best example of this realism compared to her other books. Personality is given to each character but not overacted or obnoxiousAdults and kids alike can enjoy the story and it’s a must-read if the other six books were appealing to you. Maybe it’s not the best book in the series, but Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a great conclusion to the most populars series of books in the world.
