This is my favorite book of the entire series. It is very dark in some places, but the flashbacks into the past in where we learn so much about Voldemort or Tom Riddle are very interesting and engaging. Danger is everywhere. Everything seems to be at risk, and you just don’t know what will happen next. Nothing seems to be safe anymore. There is also a little romance, but tension as well. It’s a pretty big book. A lot of pages to read. But, I was able to read it over a weekend or so with determination.
There are so many plot lines in this book, and the pace does not let up from first page to the last page. There are new twists and turns. I cannot reveal without spoiling. This is definitely an excellent book.
I recommend this book for sure. It is priced fairly I think on Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, the 2-day Free shipping is nice.
I will always remember receiving this book the day it was published (July 2007, right?), a day I had to go to a wedding and also shop for a big dinner party. I hid the book under my seat at the wedding and kept turning the pages behind my ankles, only looking up at the ceremony every page or so. Then I had the book balanced on my shopping cart, blindly tossing vegetables and cans in as fast as I could. When I got home, I finished the rest of the book by 2am, texting with my sister, saying, "I'm on page xxx." We finished within a few minutes of each other, exchanging comments on what sobbing messes we were. Later that week, I was walking to lunch and saw a girl sitting in the sun outside of the bank (where she presumably worked). She had the book in her lap and her head in her hands, obviously on one of the sad, stressful final chapters. I wanted to just go over and give her a hug.
The same happened with my mother so I started buying them for her on in large print so she could easily read them without straining her eyes.
The story is simple without being too over-the-top fantasy (my opinion) like other series I could never really get into.
In my opinion a good book will make my child laugh, cry, get angry, and feel the emotions of the book. When reading a good book I can see these emotions on my child's face while reading. The Harry Potter series got all of those reactions and more. I don't need to tell anyone the story in the book - most people have already read the books. I am reviewing based on my child's reaction to the books. My child is a 10 year old, 5th grader. She has read A LOT of books. She is the only one of my 3 children that chose to read this series. She loved it. She now wants to watch all of the movies to see how they compare to the books. I would recommend this series and maybe one day I will read it myself.
