Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Book Review
I think that there is probably not another series of books that so carefully captures the teenage years of human beings. In these seven books J.K. Rowling has described all of the phases teens move through - sweet openness & excitement, rebellion, self-hate, courage, daring, self-pity, romance, and even selflessness. We have watched the main characters learn, love, play, succeed, fail, hate, and develop an understanding of society and the circle of life. The three main characters, Harry, Ron, and Hermoine shine in this book, and their challenges are the greatest they have ever faced. Add to that the fact that they are all human, make mistakes, and hurt the people they love, and everyone can identify with at least one of them.
If you have not read the Potter series, it is not too late. Winter will be upon us soon and you will have plenty of time to make your way through seven books and seven years of teenagerhood. Enjoy!
