Review #214

Hey fellow readers. This isn’t my typical detailed review, but a list of discussion questions below for a book club.

Title- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Author- J.K. Rowling

Rating– 5/5


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….

Having now become classics of our time, the Harry Potter audiobooks never fail to bring comfort and escapism to listeners of all ages. With its message of hope, belonging, and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new listeners. 

“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”
