Hello, Bookaholics! I have finally reached the end of the “Harry Potter” series of reviews ( I was planning to do a review for the 8th one as well, but I don’t have that much to say about it, so I’m going to stop here).
Being the 7th book of the series (and the last one, for a long while), this book is the most emotional, twisted, colourful yet depressing, heroic, impressive – and to contain all of this is one single word, the richest – of the whole series. It’s got a very special place in my heart, even though I said that my favourite is the 5th book.
“HP and the Deathly Hallows” is the only book in which most of the action does not take place at Hogwarts, the castle becoming just near the end the most important place, because that is where the last civil war between wizards happens. However, the sweetest part of the book is its epilogue, where you get to see the teen wizards’ own families and children. ( I don’t usually cry while reading, but when I do, I can’t stop for like 2 hours and this is what happened when I finished this novel.)
The book follows mostly Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort through their journey to their final confrontation. The threads of this journey are, of course, Harry, Ron and Hermione’s mission to find and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes so that he could be killed once and for good; the terrible and hideous things happening at Hogwarts whith Snape as a headmaster; and how the current situation affects the lives of everyone who is important for the plot.
1. A Reader’s POV on this book:
You feel it. Everything. At maximum intensity. As if you’d be right there with the characters and you’d be living all that tension for real. It just gets inside of you and it kills your emotions, gets them torn all over the place and then it expects you to be fine and mentally re-established, so that it can just come at you again some time later and slaughter your sanity, harder than before. Yeah, this is how crazy it gets. And I don’t want to tell you more, since it would mean to give you major spoilers.
2. A Writer’s POV on this book:
You’ll be amazed, once again, by this woman’s capacity of creating a world that seems so real, that it makes you start looking for clues that it exists. Sure enough, if you get paranoid about it, you can discover such clues ( as scientists have stated), but it would benefit you to not get to that point.
As a writer, you have a new opportunity to learn how to make great plot twists, how to get your readers 100% involved in the story, and how to make them feel at extremely high levels whatever your characters are feeling. J.K. Rowling has proven many times how talented she is at doing this so you can definitely learn a thing or two from her!🙃
And I’m done with this series, finally, you may think. Thank you for sticking with me until here!
LOL (Lots Of Love), ♡
