  The thrilling climax

| | See all LemonyTheGreat's reviews (11)

The final installment of the Harry Potter books certainly delivers! By the fifth book, I felt that Rowling was slipping, but she certainly came out with a winner this time! Excellent.

  What a great ending!!!

What a great back well done J K Rowling. Superbly written with so many surprises. It is a hard read in places and is very long but it gives you the depth of the situation that the order of the pheonix are in. Voldermort is superbly written in this you can just imagine him doing all those horrible things. And also the main three Harry, Ron and Harmionie are in for one hell of a journey. Great book

  A let down...

| | See all Charlieboo30's reviews (53)

I know I'm going against the general opinion here, but this is my least favourite of all the Harry Potter books. I love the series and can read it time after time without getting bored. I desperately wanted to love the last one and I didn't.

I read it fairly quickly because I wanted to see what happened. What a let down. I don't know whether it was because of all the hype surrounding the book but it was nowhere near as good as I expected. Nothing happens. It is slow paced and boring at times. I also feel, like some other reviewers, that it was rushed to print. A real disappointment x

  Fantastic Ending to a Brilliant Series!

Could not put this book down from the moment I purchased it! It's so well written and a great finish to the series. Sad to not be able to read any more but I could re-read this one to the death!!!

To end the harry potter series... also makes it end with a quite happy ending plus the children's edition is much better than the adult version.

  Cannot DESCRIBE - Best book and series ever!

It is impossible to some up this book into one review.....but i'll give it a go. Since i read the first page of the first book all those years ago i was hooked. The idea that all this magic could happen under 'muggle' noses doesn't seem believable......but it is! Can you imagine the feeling you would have finding out your a wizard only to discover your parents died because of who they were? Well if you havn't, this will show you. Most of the world has followed Harry from when he was very small, and stuck by him all the way, never leaving him, which is why we could never wait until the next book, and had to read the older ones to get that same inspiring magical feeling you get when you read them.

We cheered when Harry discovers his life at Hogwarts, upset when we discovered his parents will never come back. Cheered when he defeated Voldermort/Quirrel, and then upset becuase we had to wait for the next book. This formula has taken us right the way through till the last......and wow it was so, so, so, worth the wait.

Their will never be an ending book or series like this one. Their are so many twist and turns, clever writing, the way you can interpret it, the feelings of emotion you have when reading.

You can't put any of them down, and when you have to (because you have finished them) you wished you hadn't. All the questions and theories are answered. Everything you have ever wanted/dreamed/expected to happen does. The ending is spectacular, and is not an anticlimax in anyway, because thats the way it was ment to end.

No matter how old you are, or what your personality, or how silly the idea of magic may sound to you, this is the only series of books you will ever need to read, as anything after it will seem very, very poor. I cannot wait for the final two films, and i pray that the producers and J.K do the books proud, and make some real good jaw dropping films......just like the books.

I read this in a day a long time ago but am writing now because I have taken all of it in. I you haven't read all of them you should. But it is still readable if you know a bit of Harry Potter background. I is the best ending of a book that I have ever read and I could read it many more times.

  Good ending

Definately a good ending to a great series of books, had got and read all of the others and was a bit aprehensive when i got this the final installment, hoping it would have that ending to live up to the series and it definately does!

You should get this and all the others if you haven't already and give them a read =)

  Talk about a ending...

If you ever wanted a good ending to a series of books look no more. Harry has a frantic page turning event filled ending which you cant predict even till the last chapter. If you loved the threesome before this book then prepair to love them more, from rons funny one liners to harrys strops this book is THE BEST. PLEASE I ASK YOU TO READ THIS BOOK YOU WILL LOVE IT.
