The heart of Book 7 is a hero's mission--not just in Harry's quest for the Horcruxes, but in his journey from boy to man--and Harry faces more danger than that found in all six books combined, from the direct threat of the Death Eaters and you-know-who, to the subtle perils of losing faith in himself. Attentive readers would do well to remember Dumbledore's warning about making the choice between "what is right and what is easy," and know that Rowling applies the same difficult principle to the conclusion of her series. While fans will find the answers to hotly speculated questions about Dumbledore, Snape, and you-know-who, it is a testament to Rowling's skill as a storyteller that even the most astute and careful reader will be taken by surprise.
I have reread the book again for a more dramatic effect once I watch the 6th movie this coming July. The last books of an ending series are always the best yet also the most heartbreaking. It marks naturally, the ending of a book that has fascinated you. a better understanding of necessary sacrifices of the characters that it housed. It gives a better understanding of the true nature of your most loved and probably most despised character and it answers all the hanging questions and finishing the air of mystery. Deathly Hallows is definitely my favorite Harry Potter book. The boy that was Severus Snape was the most touching, the worst of all the deaths for me was of Fred Weasley, I had shed a tear or two for Sirius on Book 5 and definitely felt the lost of professor Dumbledore at 6 but Fred Weasley was young and of have so much potential, and a revered friend, the death of Rookwood upon Aberforth's hand wasn't enough. The only thing that I wish had more on it was the Ginny-Harry love, it feels so hidden, I was hoping for a sweeter ending and for a more explained details on the future that has become them rather than having it researched on Harry Potter Wiki. I honestly thought too that Voldermort would have another chance of a more better life, but I guess the mutilation of souls were too severe and too inhuman to uphold. It definitely did not disappoint. J.K Rowling will be forever the best author for me. To create a world truly her own, some concepts borrowed but definitely evolved and shared with billions of people, was sooo awesome. 5 stars is not enough to rate this book. I seriously think that her books aren't thick enough. haha. I also couldn't have thought of a better duel between Potter and Voldemort, I can't get over the intense scenario of that moment, from the moment he casted Protego! till his signature spell of Expelliarmus! A spell so simple yet very fitting. The Tale of the Boy Who Lives and his loyal friends from the D.A, Order of the Phoenix and the House of Gryffindors are like my old friends if you need to escape and have a good time all you have to do come to them.
