Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I find myself listening to the whole Harry Potter series again and again.  The reader, Jim Dale, has a soothing voice which is easy to listen to so I listen when I am knitting or doing cross stitch.  In this last book, Rowling gathers up all the loose ends in the whole series and weaves them into a stunning conclusion. Each time I read this I am in awe of her ability to organize the information in the previous books and connect it to events in succeeding books.  Little bits of information which seem to have little or no meaning are revealed and fit into later plots.

In this book, Harry has his biggest task of all.  He has to find the Deathly Hallows as well as the horcruxes.  The way is difficult and tests the character of not only Harry, but Ron and Hermione.  Everything is revealed and we get to see what Harry might have learned from Dumbledore if he hadn't died.
