This is definitely the best in the series for me! I read it 3 times in 8 days!! I love it so much because all of the questions that we still had that had not been answered in the other books, are answered here and its so good to see Voldemort dead!!! 🤣🤣 It still really sad to see the characters we love die, though.
I love the way J.K. Rowling wrote this series, where its in Harry's perspective, but he's not the narrator. Its entertaining and fun to read!

If you're looking for a book to read, I recommend this whole series. Book 1 and 2 I read in grade 4 and 5, the rest I read in grade 6. I think books 3 and over to be 10+, because from that point it gets more dark (and more fun)!
Nvm back on topic, the 7th book is completely full of adventure. It's kinda sad that there are only 7 books in the series. But it definitely leaves with you satisfied. It's an amazing read. I must admit, J.K Rowling is an author with a great writing flow. No book ABSOLUTELY NO BOOK can compare to this series.
If you love this book so much and want to watch the movies, I'd say it's 11+. Seriously. I have a younger sibling (I'm not going to mention his name, I'd not want to embarrass him, Krishnastar) and he got REALLY scared when he watched the second one. He was about eight when it happened. So, please follow the age guidelines for the movies.
Now let's not get all over the age ratings. I think that it's a really good book. The 7th book may be a little boring when Harry's hiding (oops! Did I spoil it for you?), but then he finishes with doing the one thing he's been dreaming of doing... repaying Voldemort. I'm not spoiling it anymore! Oh, but Ginny and Molly... HAHAHA! Oh, and Ginny and Cho.. a bit of bad blood!
"Not my daughter, you..."
I really got addicted to this book. I finished it in two days (ask anybody, my mom, my dad, my best friend, etc.) because it was such a good read, and I didn't want to leave it off then go do my other work. The only thing wrong about this book, is, if you're a strong reader, then you can't put it down!
There are a few sad parts in the series, like when Dobby dies. On his grave, it says; Here Lies Dobby, A Free Elf. You might be saying: DON'T SPOIL THE WHOLE BOOK! Okay, I won't, but if you think you're too precious to view sorts of stuff like this... You still have to. This is top-class. The ending totally makes up for everything, and I'm saying there's nothing wrong with the middle. The climax is SO superb.
I'm sad that I finished the series, but I'm happy at the same time. I'm sad because I wish there were more books to read in this series! But, I'm happy because now I finally reached the end of this. Anyway, this book (and series) is a MUST-READ! I'm not really optimistic on every book, so if this is coming from me, you know this is a good book.

P.S. If I haven't persuaded you to read, then I don't know who can.

Oh my gosh this book is amazing! It's definitely one of my favorites when it comes to the Harry Potter series. It is a bit dark compared to some of the other books, so I wouldn't recommend it for kids- it's more for teens and adults. Basically, Harry must embark on a journey to find and destroy all the Horcruxes, so that he can once and for all rid the world of the its most dark and dangerous wizard- Harry's nemesis- Lord Voldemort. Ron and Hermione, who of course insisted upon joining him, help Harry on his quest, the trio all the while fleeing from Voldemorts followers- the Death Eaters. But, in the end- wait, I'm not telling you. You have to go read it! (and I recommend
reading all of the other 6 books before this one because otherwise you'll have no idea what's going on)

Reading the last book in the Harry Potter series is a little emotional for me. We've grown up with Harry and his friends, watched their characters develop and endure hardships, and finally read as it comes to a close. While I might not be the biggest fan of J.K. Rowling herself, the world she created was incredible and provided a fictional sanctuary for millions of people of all ages. Harry, Ron, and Hermione leave Hogwarts in order to hunt down horcroaxes as it is their only way to defeat Voldemort completely. We watch them struggle to obtain and destroy them, and finally read about the Battle of Hogwarts. I am incredibly sad to finish the series, but after you the read the books you always have the movies to go watch :)

No one's books ever hit me like J.K Rowling books. her books are expressive yet so emotional. I've read pretty much all her books although the Cursed Child was a disappointment to literally everyone including my siblings I suggest reading the original seven books. I am really happy that I read the harry potter series at the right time

This is a very fulfilling end to the Harry Potter series. It really demonstrates how there is no peace and tranquility without chaos and sacrifice. I just finished rereading this series during quarantine and is incredible how many great aspects of these books slipped my mind since I first read them. I cried the first time I read this book and I cried this time. There is are some incredibly fulfilling bits of character development in this book and it has its fair share of twists. And one of the coolest aspects of this book to me is that we get to see characters that we normally wouldn't focus on in a new light.

If there had to be a knock on this book, it's that things really get tough in the book at times. This book is not all rainbows and unicorns. There were certain points in the book where I took a short break away from the book because it was difficult to get through. In the end, my love for Harry Potter got me through those bits and it was well worth it. I cannot think of a better ending for these books so I highly suggest you check it out if you liked the past books. - Martin, Grade 12

Deathly Hallows has a great story line. I think that the story dragged on a little, and every now and then I had to power read. This book might need concentration, because it does get chaotic at certain points. It takes you down a rollercoaster of emotions. You'll feel ecstatic, happy, but you will also feel sorrowful at certain points.The ending leaves you feeling good, but also a little sad. It is a wonderful conclusion to the Harry Potter series.

There were heavy footfalls behind them, and a great deal of puffing: Slughorn
had just caught up.
“Harry!” he panted, massaging his immense chest beneath his emerald-green silk pajamas. “My dear boy. . . what a surprise. . . Minerva, do please explain. . . . Severus. . . what. . . ?”
“Our headmaster is taking a short break,” said Professor McGonagall, pointing at the Snape-shaped hole in the windows.

At a time when the forces of evil seem to be gaining the upper hand, Harry comes of age in the wizarding world, and must take on and defeat Voldemort--or be killed himself. It is the epic conclusion of the whole harry Potter series which includes both Deathly Hallows movies' plot in this book.

Harry, Ron and Hermione have quit Hogwarts and are on the run to do just what they promised Dumbledore - defeat all of Voldemort's horcruxes. But it is not as easy as it looks. Along the way, Harry also overcomes many more mysteries in need of desperate answers - who was this mysterious thief? Was Dumbledore a traitor? Where are the Deathly Hallows?

With all the challenges, and questions ahead of them, Harry, Ron and Hermione strive so hard to find all the horcruxes - only to face a terrible fate back at Hogwarts.
