As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid’s motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves, and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin – Harry must stand and face his enemy…
This book is so bittersweet. I’m really happy and so sad at the same time…because I’m no longer in Hogwarts. I’m no longer taking a magical journey with Harry and Hermione and Ron. But I DID IT. After 18 whole years on this planet, I FINISHED HARRY POTTER.
Anyway, enough about that – I have a post scheduled for Tuesday all about my overall HP journey – let’s talk about the last book.
“We’re all human, aren’t we.”
The thing I really noticed in this book is how complicated and complex the storyline is. Hallows, Horcruxes, Hogwarts, fighting. Along with all of the personal parts of the plot (their romances, friendships and families), I felt Harry mature with the story and I loved reading about his thoughts.
I have to say even though I loved this book, it could be a little too complicated for my liking. In fact, I had to read the last couple of chapters in my room, on my own, in complete silence, to be able to fully understand everything that was going on.
The only thing I have to mention I didn’t like in this book was it was very hard to adapt to not being in Hogwarts. As awesome as it was travelling the British countryside, I did want so badly to be back in the castle.
“Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
Honestly, my head is in such a mess right now because I’m so confused about not being in the magical world and how I’m going to adapt to not reading about Harry and his friends. I can safely say I loved this book, but it’s so hard to get the words out! So let’s finish up this review with a star rating…
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
