“Give me Harry Potter,” said Voldemort’s voice, “and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.”
As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid’s motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves, and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin – Harry must stand and face his enemy…
Well, I thought the last book was sad… But this… My poor heart. This book is now one of the saddest things I’ve read. I’ve seen the movies and I knew what was going to happen and yet… It hit me big time! Especially one tiny detail, that I have no idea how I forgot that it happened – but I did, and it broke my heart!
There are tons of amazing moments in this book, but there are also come utterly sad ones. But in this review, I will try and focus on the uplifting ones because if you read the books or saw the movies it’s impossible to forget the sad ones, and there’s no need to relive it here, right?! Plus, I don’t feel strong enough to talk about those right now so… Here goes.
This book has both some of the most stressful and the most exciting moments in the whole series. It’s a lot more intense and dark and although I love the cutsie beginning of the series I love how it “gradually” got darker till this book. I believe the amount of darkness in this book really manages to bring the story to life and make it more realistic, and I couldn’t but love it for that.
Another amazing part was Kreacher! I changed my mind about him, as I’m sure lots of you did. It was my first time reading this book, and in the movies, I didn’t change my mind, so it came as quite a surprise! I ended up adoring and understanding him much better. I always adored elves because I mean, Dobby is the cutest thing ever, but this book really made me understand them and their life better.
Like many of you, I loved Snape’s part in this book. It was so touching! He has been one of my fav characters from the beginning and this only made me love him more. I always loved that he is a really unique and dark character, but in here, I loved him for all different reasons.
Once again, friendship and family is a big part of this book and it’s the most amazing and sweetest thing ever. There are tons of characters I love in this series and I just loved to see more of them here. I loved to see the students interact and unite in this book. And obviously, I loved to see the Weasley family once again. I loved them with all my heart!
There’s just so many things I loved here and overall in the series! Harry Potter has been one of the biggest loves in my life and now, I can finally say I read the books and LOVED THEM! Also, I really liked that some things in this book will have a connection with the Fantastic Beasts movie coming up. Because the HP movies didn’t have that part so much in them.
