Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7)


A darker shade of gray

Harry potter has once again managed to foil my best laid plans to read his story slowly and savor each chapter. from the very start i found myself sucked into the quidditch world cup, the hints of you-know-who's eminent return, and the red-herrings as to who was on which side. ... those that claim that the book is darker need to look at the facts as they stand: harry's parents are dead. many wizards did not survive voldemort's first reign. there are plenty who would be happy to see the dark days return. none of those is a bright happy thing. the point is that j.k rowling has given us a character that uses his abilities and morals for good, not evil, despite the "darkness" around him. overall, the 4th book takes harry (and the reader) on a more intense emotional roller coaster, complete with thrills and chills. i for one cannot wait until the next train leaves the station!

One of the modern classics!

Great book, no matter how many times you read it. while the third and fourth books are much better, this one is an amazing book all by itself. definitely a great introduction to the world of harry potter!

This is my favorite book out of the whole series! this one shows substantial character development, and starts to develop the protagonist and antagonist relationship.
