Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7) by J.K. Rowling

In books read on December 9, 2010

I finally got around to finishing the series off. I'm probably the last person on the planet to read this... My copy has a "half price at Borders" sticker on it and Borders closed down in the UK a year ago. The first half of the book I found really slow, I kept putting it down and not picking it up again for days. The pace picked up in the second half and the last 150 pages or so were more or less unputdownable. This is exactly how I found book 6 to be as well (and that's why I like keeping records of the books I read as I wouldn't have remembered that otherwise).

So, quite enjoyable in the end, but mostly I'm just pleased to be finished with it though. That goes for the book and the series. I can now enjoy knowing all about Harry Potter without having to read about him any more. That seems wrong somehow.

This was a paperback.

I've read this book excruciatingly slowly, over about six weeks, and it's only short to start with. I managed to miss any possible connection between the two threads of story in the plot and, fairly obviously, got rather bored with the book. I am intruigued to see mention of Gale's later book Rough Music as a "sequel" though as I loved that book and can't remember any connection between this and that apart from the Cornish setting. Will have to figure that out.
