Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Book Review

( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

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.

Where one teacher stands in front of 20 kids, each one having different strengths, different needs, different gifts, different dream. And then teach the same thing the same way? That's horrific.Curriculums are created by policy makers. Most of which have never taught a day in their life. Just obsessed with standardized tests. They think bubbling in a multiple choice question will determine success.

The education system isn't there to create intelligent individuals and definitely not there to teach, it is there to create useful pawns for the elites, we are all brainwashed from day one. So yes I think they should change,  but they most likely won't.

If you are a student in middle through high school these days you might  not feel like you are learning a lot of things that you will use after high school. The truth is, you aren't. Are they teaching you how to obtain money? How about  how to manage a check account? Or how about this are you learning how to handle a job interview in school. No? Maybe you have learned  one of them perhaps if you count elementary, but dude we're way past elementary and ever since the fith grade I aint lean nothing about anything i'l use outside of school since 5th grade. Oh wait, I DID learned something. I learned that half the stuff they teach us are not even on the tests we HAVE TO take. Probably because we should know the information already, but the thing is MOST of us in the U.S don't know half of it or care because it's all useless to us so it has to be re taught again. Some teachers are kind enough to re teach old lessons but  not all do, and I can't believe that i discovered that all it takes to make things right is for a student to confront a teacher in class to ask them to teach me things that we will use in our future, not yesterdays future. If no one does that IN CLASS, IN FRONT of the class. You are just one student, you might save yourself but not the others if you do this alone.. If other unsaved students slow down the class you won't learn a thing. What do you think? about this subject?
