Book review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

March 11, 2010

Title: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Author: J. K. Rowling
Pahes: 607

I had been meaning to read this book for ages. I finally decided to buy it and thought I would blaze through it and be done within a day or two, like I did with the other Harry Potter books. Two days and counting and I was  still not even halfway through the book. It is much more depressing than the other Potter books and reminded me of The Lord of the Rings; Harry’s roaming through lonely rural England is reminiscent of Frodo’s journey through the desolation of Mordor.

Rowling did a bad job with the previous book (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) in terms of plot construction. When reading The Half-Blood Prince I made a prediction about the end of the the next book and, unsurprisingly, it turned out to be true.

This book was a disappointment for me. It was not as attention-holding as the previous Potter books.
