Why did you decide to read this book? Did a friend suggest it? Did it have an interesting cover?: 

I decided to read this book because I love to read the Harry Potter series. The Harry Potter series is the best series I have ever read!

What is the story about?/What happened in the story?: 

This story is about a boy named Harry Potter and his friends, Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley, who are searching for Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes.

Why did you like this story? or Why did you not like this story?: 

I liked this story because I love mystery and adventure; and that's what this story is all about. I love that there is an epilogue at the end 19 years from the end of this book. I also like that the author dedicated the book to me because I have stuck with Harry until the very end.

Other thoughts or feelings about this story? Anything else to add?: 

It is sad to know that this is the last book of the Harry Potter series. I would recommend this book to people who like mystery, adventure, and (of course) magic.

This book, by far, is the best Harry Potter book yet. It not only resolves conflict (such as the Weasley family vs. Percy Weasley conflict) but it shows you just how much Harry has grown up during his years at Hogwarts. Harry is striving to save the world from the evil Lord Voldemort while puzzling over the 'real' Albus Dumbledore and learning to deal with his grief and mild indignation. Harry, of course, continues the work that he and Dumbledore started and sets off with Hermione and Ron to defeat Voldemort once and for all. But along the way there are many obstacles: Ron deserts Harry and Hermione, Harry's wand breaks,etc. There's also the "small" problem of whom they can actually trust and the traps and nightguards set in place by Lord Voldemort himself. So when Harry returns to Hogwarts to defeat Voldemort, an all-out battle commences. Many of Harry's good friends die trying to save him, including Lupin, Tonks, and one of the Weasley twins. This battle brings all the characters closer together as they all fight to defend what they know is right. Harry witnesses the death of Severus Snape, which he finds out was actually an ally in his fight against Voldemort. After Harry looks into the pensive that full of the memories Snape gave to to explain everything, Harry finds out not only that Dumbledore's death was planned, but that he must die. Harry, now sure of what he must do puts on the invisibility cloak and, without saying 'good bye' to anyone sets off to hand himself over to Voldemort and his minions. On the way he asks Neville to kill Voldemort's snake (because Dumbledore told Harry to but because he was going to die he couldn't.) Harry gives himself up, dies, and Dumbledore and Harry talk. Harry decides to go back and defeat Voldemort. Successfully does so under the cover of a skirmish between the Death Eaters and the remaining survivors from the good side which soon turns into another battle where Harry defeats Voldemort. The book ends with Harry and Ginny's children meeting Ron and Hermione's children as they get ready to board the train to Hogwarts.

As you can see, this book has just the right mixture of suspense, tragedy, and fun completed by the perfect ending where good triumphs over evil once and for all.
