Book: Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows

Author: J.K.Rowling

Rating: 3/5

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows-J K Rowling

The book follows what should be Harry's 7th year into Hogwarts, without the support of his mentor Albus Dumbledore and godfather Sirius Black. Friendships will be tested, hearts will be broken, revenge will be on everyone's mind. This year Harry must face his nemesis Lord Voldemort, "for neither can live while the other survives.."

Social/Historical context:

The book follows the classical good versus bad scene. As it is a children's series the characters in it seem to have very clear demarcations of either black or white. It is only in this particular book that we see shades of grey emerge. This book is aimed at a larger audience than the preceding books in the series.

Writing Style:

J.K Rowling mesmerizes with her beautiful language which catapults the reader into a different world. Her style is fluid, tense at times and it is absolutely unputdownable at certain points in the narrative. Harry as a protagonist is captivating. His insecurities and fears are relatable.

My Thoughts:

It may not be my favourite book of the series but I did enjoy it. Believe it or not, I did shed a few tears when the book ended. To read this book is to see how a child grows into a man. How certain decisions empower us and how others can leave us feeling weak, even if they are the right thing to do. We see shades of grey in the Malfoys and Dumbledore, pointing out that maybe the things that appeared the right thing at a certain point in time may not be so at another. Harry has a depth that defies his age and that's completely understandable, because he's lost so much. Hermione and Ron stand by him with unwavering loyalty. The quintessential battle between good vs. evil was won as simply as putting two and two together. The book may not be the expected fireworks after the much adored series but it does have that spark.
