This book was an amazing end to the series. I loved it so much, and it was worth staying up all those nights and spending countless hours reading the book. If you haven’t read the series, I really recommend reading the Philosopher’s Stone, and continue your journey to this incredible book. The entire series was filled with excitement, anger, action, magic, sadness, love, friendship, family, humor and so much more. This book can make you cry, as well as laugh and smile. J.K. Rowling did such a marvelous job creating each of the characters and their personalities; it makes it really easy to relate to them. This book taught me that you can always find some light and some hope, when you are stuck in the darkness. It also showed me how powerful love and friendship can be. I cannot even express how great this book was. If you love fantasy, I really recommend reading this series, and this magical ending.

A wonderful, magical end to the Harry Potter series. So much backstory is explained for the characters of Snape and Dumbledore. While the beginning is slow, once the story and mythology picks up, you won't be able to stop reading.

And this concludes the original Harry Potter series. There were ups and downs, joys and sorrows, and I loved rereading it all. From Hermione and Ron's bickering to Harry's relationship with Ginny, from Ron's success in getting on the Quidditch team to Hermione's realization that the Hallows were real, to Harry's ultimate decision that saves not only Hogwarts but the entire Wizarding World. This book ends a tale of friendship that so many people enjoyed reading about, and yet it is not the end but the middle of the story.

Rowling was truly inspired to write such a wonderful story and watching the characters grow and change was my favorite part. From an unsure boy who was abused by his uncle and aunt to the hero who rejected power to defeat his enemy, Harry Potter is a protagonist I love reading about. From the second-in-everything Ronald Weasley who stepped onto the Hogwarts Express to the man who realized that being the popular one is a matter of perspective. From the brainy girl with no friends to the woman who eventually became Minister of Magic and helped to protect the rights of non-Wizards. All of their stories are fantastic and sad at the same time.

If you have the time to follow a seven-book series, definitely pick up this amazing series. Be prepared to laugh, cry, and jump up and down with victory in each book. If you enjoy fantasy and magic with lots of friendship, pick up 'The Philosopher's Stone' and start the journey. Or, if you're an old hat at Hogwarts, reread this amazing series to sink back into the glorious world that J.K. Rowling has made.

Obviously, great. You don't need me to tell you that. The insight into Snape's past made a lot more sense and was more fleshed out than in the movies, and I definitely appreciated that (although, his character is still not redeemable, and if you disagree, you're honestly gross). I definitely cried in this one, and I was fascinated that by the time the first movie (Deathly Hallows, pt.1) ended, we were already 2/3 of the way through the book! Anyways, absolutely loved this; what a great end to a great 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.

Flitwick’s spell hit the suit of armor behind which Snape had taken shelter:
With a clatter it came to life. Snape struggled free of the crushing arms and
sent it flying back toward his attackers; Harry and Luna had to dive sideways
to avoid it as it smashed into the wall and shattered. When Harry looked up
again, Snape was in full flight, McGonagall, Flitwick, and Sprout all thundering after him. He hurtled through a classroom door and, moments later, he
heard McGonagall cry, “Coward! COWARD!”

Ron: "What are you doing with all those books anyway?"
Hermione: "Just trying to decide which ones to take with us."
Ron: "Oh, of course. I forgot we'll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library."

There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione's arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet.

Harry: "Is this the moment?"

When nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice.

Harry: "Oi! There's a war going on here!"
Ron: "I know, mate. So it's now or never, isn't it?"
Harry: "Never mind that, what about the Horcrux? D'you think you could just--just hold it in, until we've got the diadem?"
Ron: "Yeah--right--sorry--"

He and Hermione set about gather up fangs, both pink in the face.

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.
