Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Book Review

JK Rowling’s final Harry Potter novel has arrived and it’s the final showdown between the Boy Who Lived and Voldemort!

Author: J.K. Rowling

The seventh and final book in the fantastically popular Harry Potter series of novels has arrived with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! It's the end of the seven-year showdown between Harry Potter and Voldemort. There are a lot of things to get settled in this book. Does Harry live? Does Harry die? Is Snape a villain? We won't spoil the story for you, but read on for our Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows book review!

The Story

It's the start of another year at Hogwarts as Harry's seventeenth birthday arrives - the day he's finally allowed to cast magic outside of school! But, Voldemort's on the loose, the Ministry of Magic is full of Death Eaters, Harry has a mission from Dumbledore to hunt down the last of the Horcruxs, the legendary Deathly Hallows is rearing its head and, on top of it all, Harry has a wedding to go to! Take a deep breath and get ready for 607 pages of magic and adventure.

Magic, Adventure and Fantastic Fun

Don't just take a deep breath, buckle up too! The action starts, fast and furious, on page 42. From then on, the book reads like an action movie with wizard duels, heroism and the terror of the murderous Lord Voldemort on every page. You also get to find out about Dumbledore's history, which is interesting. Finally, a lot of people die. This is good because it really makes Voldemort terrifying and Harry's friends that much more heroic.

Horrible Flaws

The story is solid, but it waffles a bit near the end, then finishes suddenly. It needs two more chapters to wrap it up properly. Finally, a lot of people die. This is bad because it means goodbye to a lot of the coolest characters from the other Harry Potter books, and some of the deaths are really cheesy.

The Bottom Line

The huge final book is a Godzilla-like beast that goes around in Harry Potter's world, stomping, crushing and destroying stuff like a great clumsy monster. It's a fantastic adventure and it'll have jaws dropping all over the place as beloved characters battle the forces of evil. But, at the very end it feels like someone just stole the last half of your dessert.

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.
