How Good is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

How Good is the Deathly Hallows?

The deathly hallows, lives upto all expectations. It is fast moving and absorbing. It helps, if you have read the previous editions; part of the charm of the story is how, the various subplots and loose ends are brought together in a fitting finale. Quite often, J.K.Rowling brings in characters who have played key roles in previous stories. For example, Dobby the house elf makes an important contribution to the story line. We also see another side to Kreacher, the house elf at Sirius's old house. J.K.Rowling has created many fascinating characters, but the house elf's add an intriguing development and provide a contrast to the other characters.

The story is so engrossing that once you start, it is difficult to stop. In fact you find yourself rushing ahead of the page, trying to find out what happens next. The plot is very tight, within the world of Muggles and magic, it makes sense and follows a certain pattern. It is like J.K.Rowling has created a parallel world, with its own rules, creatures and way of being. To some extent, it brings to mind the creation of middle earth, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Although, not on the same level and degree of scope there are some common similarities.

What Happens in the last Harry Potter?

(Without giving the story away)

There are tremendous battles between the forces of Voldermort and those opposing him. Some set piece battles take the breath away, one can visualise a very engaging film when they get round to making it. At the same time, in between the great battles there are also moments of reflection when we are with a couple of characters struggling with their inner battles.

Is it easy to predict what happens? I think it is difficult to predict what happens, there are some twists in the plot which leave you gasping, but at the same time they make sense. This is one of the great strengths of J.K.Rowling - the ability to combine multiple plot lines and subplots and bring it all together.

What next for Harry Potter?

Given what J.K.Rowling has said, there seems little hope of future adventures for Harry Potter. Basically, Harry Potter, was always expected to be seven books. However, there is always the chance that she may change her mind. At the moment, J.K.Rowling has said that she is writing a children's book. She may also write an brief summary of some facts about the world of Hogwarts and Harry Potter.
