Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – by J K Rowling (4/5)

Harry Potter. Well, you probably aren’t going to read this book unless you’ve read all the others – and if you’ve read all the others then you’ll read this one too. That said it is definately the best of the series, and J K Rowling has grown with each book, as have her readers. Go back and read the first and you’ll see what I mean. The Deathly Hallows ties up all the loose ends, kills off a few characters and keeps you on the edge of your seat in places. It’s well written and for a book that comes in over 700 pages it’s easy to read and finish in one sitting, just make sure you have a wrist support.

Thanks to Jess for lending this to me a few days after it was out – she, like most fans, had bought and read the book within a day. I just wonder if all the Harry fans will be suffering something akin to withdrawal soon.
