Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré It was pure amazingness! J.K. Rowling brought everything together. What an amazing author.

The characters, as always, were consistent with room for growth. This book was definately not as light hearted as some of the other books were but there were moments of humor which was refreshing. You learn so much about both Dumbledore and Snape; it's just amazing and sometimes shocking. I'm not sure who's past was the most surprising.

I have to admit, learning about Snape really changes your perspective and turns him into a character that you can love as much, if not more, than Dumbledore.

Of course, there was a huge battle at the end. It was done very well and that's including the loss of some of our favorite characters. There's a lot of information in this book, so I would suggest for those picking the book up not be daunted by its size. The book is well paced and gripping.
