The final Harry Potter book. A book so well known, so popular that apparently no one thought it needed a synopsis. There is not one on the book, or the websites. Which is understandable seeing as how it’s the same Harry vs. Voldemort, good vs. evil that it has been since the very beginning. Of course this is the end of the evil. Or at least this particular evil.
Harry, Ron and Hermione go off on a mission to find all of the Horcruxes that Voldemort has scatter across the wizarding world – in all the places that held some sort of importance to him. They must try and think like Voldemort and anticipate what he will have in store – which is made easier since Voldemort can’t seem to keep hold of his emotions and opens the connection between Harry and himself quite frequently. But this does not keep Harry from danger. No – every other move he makes, Harry, Ron and Hermione find themselves in another crazy, dangerous situation.
In addition to the Horcruxes, the three are left to decipher the strange items that Dumbledore has left them in his will. Upon much research, Dumbledore’s clues lead them on another mission – to find, or at least find out about – the Deathly Hallows. A concept that Harry embraces and even becomes consumed with on his journey.
In the end, of course, the books is summed up with who is the better wizard, the better person – Harry or Tom Riddle.
I enjoyed the ending of Harry Potter. Nothing mind-numbingly amazing or anything, pretty much exactly what I expected actually. I’m thankful to be done with the books and over my obsession. I’m still, of course, looking forward to the movies! My husband and I have had fun debating where they are planning on dividing the book to make two movies. It will be interesting to find out.
I love the wall to wall action of this book. But more than that, I loved the much anticipated and built up (OMG FINALLY) Ron/Hermione kiss. Another favorite part is when Ron says to Malfoy – “This is the second time we’ve saved your life today!” Great stuff!
