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 now 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.
Well, that’s it, I’ve finished the whole series! I’m honestly shocked about how much I loved these books. I know they’re technically aimed at children but I honestly think any age would love them. Seeing as this is the last book, I wanted to share my thoughts on the series overall. My favourite character of the main 3 was Hermione. To be honest, the movies make Ron and Hermione seem like they have no stories without Harry. Ron’s quidditch playing from Order of the Phoenix was left out which I think took away from his character and a lot of Hermione’s stress from Prisoner of Azkaban was also left out. I think the books show more of their characters and I loved that. Of the secondary characters, I loved Dobby. I think the movies left out way too much of his story. Elves in general didn’t feature nearly enough in the movies. I think Dobby’s loyalty to Harry in Deathly Hallows Part 1 didn’t make sense if you hadn’t read the books as all the things Dobby did for Harry and his friends at Hogwarts was left out. I definitely think that the books give a much deeper understanding of what happened. I’m so glad I read them and would recommend them to any reader!
