I finally finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It’s amazing to see what a phenomenon the set of seven books has been to the world. It was an enjoyable read with lots of mysteries to unravel and villains to fight.
Not to give away the ending, let’s just say, that there could be the possibility of an eighth book if the publisher really pushed J.K. Rowling, she left room in the story to continue it somewhat. With all the talk about Dumbledore being gay in recent news, it made me wonder if J.K. Rowling decided to mention this piece of information to sell more books. Things have been a bit quiet on the Hogwarts front until this juicy piece of gossip hit the newstands.
I haven’t yet seen the latest Harry Potter movie, but this particular book made me wonder about how they decide to translate The Deathly Hallows to film. As a series of books geared toward children and young adults, it’s amazing how violent this last book was compared to the others. In fact, if you’ve read all seven books, each one gets increasingly more violent. Perhaps, she did this to adapt to the readers as they age. Just as Harry is only 11 in the first book and graduates at 17, it appears she’s adapted the book to include more mature material.
Needless to say, J.K. Rowling has clearly made her mark on the world and has enlighted us Muggles.
