and the Deathly Hallows: By J.K. Rowling
Why I Love This Book:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final book of my favorite series, will always remain one of my favorite books because of what it did to me. It put me through my entire range of emotions with its dark and enthralling story. From happiness and excitement when the characters found a source of benefit or hope, to sadness and even some anger when tragedy struck. I was on my toes from beginning to end as the cast of characters I had come to know so well faced their greatest challenge yet, as they sought to overthrow the Dark Lord Voldemort, who had begun anew his reign of terror over the wizard world. While the fast-paced action and startling revelations, the deep insight into the thoughts of Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they faced great danger and impossible circumstances kept me focused on the protagonist's inner conflicts and development as people. I first read this book when I was nine years old, and by the end I had felt fear and sorrow, marveled and cried, but I was left with an all-encompassing feeling of what an incredible novel I had just read. While there will always be new books I read that I may even grow to love more, this one will always hold a special place in my heart as the time I grew up as a reader.
Quotes From The Book:
- “It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”
- “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
- “We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
