Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows
by J K Rowling
Deathly-Hallows-2011-Wall-Calendar.jpg
After Dumbledore dies at the hand of Severus Snape, Voldemort completely takes control of the Ministry of Magic and the wizarding world. Harry, Ron, and Hermione do not return to Hogwarts and leave from the burrow - much to the displeasure of Ron's mom - to hunt and destroy Voldemort's remaining horcruxes. The whereabouts of two founders' objects is unknown, and Nagini is supposed to be the sixth horcrux. As they search for the Horcruxes, the trio learn more about Dumbledore's past. Harry is disillusioned with his hero. They go through a myriad of adventures and death defying situations and finally Harry defeats Voldemort by actually conquering death himself. There is an epilogue where you even get to find out about our heroes as adults and learn about their families.
Major themes in the novel are death and living in a corrupted society. It is a sort of morality tale of good triumphing over evil.
I love this book! I believe it is an excellent final installment in the Harry Potter series.I really enjoyed all of the plot twists and the answers to 7 years of questions. I was prepared for Harry to die but when he finally escaped it was very satisfying. I must say that it was great to have the epilogue where you get to find out how they end up as adults with families of their own.
