Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

syndetics-lcLoreen’s parting thoughts about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling . . .

Spoiler alert:  If you haven’t already finished the last of the Harry Potter books, this next post has some plot elements you might not want to know about yet.

Excellent, satisfying finish to this wonderful series! Just one small critique: I wish so many of the “loose ends” had not been tied up in the long conversation between Dumbledore and Harry in the Hallows. I think it would have been a better book (though much longer!) if Rowling had not depended on this literary technique so much.  However, I loved Dumbledore’s reply to Harry’s question on whether their meeting was real or just happening in his mind. “Of course this is happening in your mind, Harry. But why would you think that means it isn’t real?” Also the epilogue was on the trite side (maybe written with a future movie in mind?)
