2017 Book Review #17: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

wow. this book was awesome!

 I'm finally done with the entire Harry Potter series.  This 7th book went quickly....very fast-paced and exciting.  and SO much symbolism with Christ, the Resurrection, Satan, good vs. evil, etc.  Probably the only book in the series where the symbolism to Christianity really became very clear.


We find Harry, Hermione, and Ron on the quest for the Horcruxes and of course they cannot tell a soul what they are planning due to Dumbledore's wishes.

They have left Hogwarts and are on "on the run" from the Death Eaters and Voldemort, the Dark lord. (the Satan figure).  Sadly, they lose a couple of other friends and life becomes full of running, battles, figuring out the last Horcrux and trying to figure out exactly who has the Elder Wand.

Will Harry really have to die to save his friends from the Dark lord??

Will he first successfully kill Voldemort?

Read the book to find out!


This book was my favorite in the entire series although I did really enjoy books 4 and 6 as well.  They are all well written and are very exciting in many spots.  One of the books (#5) was the one that bored me but this last one was full of surprises, excitement, suspense, drama, laughter and tears.

And of course the Christian symbolism was just amazing.

The whole theme of Love wins every time was so well done and so evident throughout this entire book.  The author did a marvelous job of wrapping up the story line of Harry's family and connection to Severus Snape. 

The epilogue was set to be nineteen years later...and what a wonderful job the author did to tie up all the remaining friends and their lives.  I just loved this book. 

I am now ready to watch the final movie with my daughters.

In my opinion, this book is appropriate for ages 9 and older.

On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest, I rate this a 10.
