To avoid any spoilers of what I think of the final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, here is an summary and review of the book in a nutshell:
“I picked it up. I read it in less than 24 hours. I put it down. I picked it up again to read the ending. I put it down again. I feel like crying.”
For a character you followed through all the years, knowing it comes to a finality really puts everything into perspective. There is a certain sense of regret that you’re never going to read about everyone’s exploits again but you know that it’s finally at an end and that’s what makes this good.
It’s also weird that I’ve never actually bought any of the books. I’m smart enough to wait for the box set editions to come out so that I can have a neat new pile for me to savour instead of have a series of worn books in yearly succession. If it’s good enough for me to actually spend money on buying, it’s good enough to read and reread it, which I have done so over the years.
To rid myself of the melancholy that comes with the end of Harry Potter, I’ve found a great site worth having a look through. Even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan, it’s worth going through it all anyway. It’s called Potter Puppet Pals and here is a sample of what’s in store at the site.
It won’t be long before you’ll be singing for Snape and Voldemort that’s for sure.
