A work that is part of Harry Potter series.
'His hand closed automatically around the fake Horcrux, but in spite of everything, in spite of the dark and twisting path he saw stretching ahead for himself, in spite of the final meeting with Voldemort he knew must come, whether in a month, in a year, or in ten, he felt his heart lift at the thought that there was still one last golden day of peace left to enjoy with Ron and Hermione.' With these words Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince draws to a close. And here, in this seventh and final book, Harry discovers what fate truly has in store for him as he inexorably makes his way to that final meeting with Voldemort. In this thrilling climax to the phenomenally bestselling series, J.K. Rowling will reveal all to her eagerly waiting readers.

I ENJOYED THE BOOK TREMENDOUSLY, BUT AFTER ALL THE WAITING AND WONDERING IF THE COUPLES THAT I WANTED TO GET TOGETHER WOULD, THERE WAS NO DETAILS ON HOW EXACTLY THEY GOT TOGETHER........MAYBE ROWLING HAS A NOTHER BOOK INSTORE? THE LOST NINETEEN YEARS?
I CERTAINLY HOPE SO, THE RELATIONSHIPS IN THE BOOK ALWAYS HAVE THE MOST AMUSING OUTCOMES...
HERE'S TO LIVING IN HOPE.....

I was plesantly surprised at the outcome of book 7 as well as the thing harry discovers about himself and those closest to him. I was most certainly not a cheap thrill that JK Rowling went for. She endded the Harry Potter series in style. You wont believe the words as you read them.
An excellent end to a great series!Was this review helpful?

Without giving too much away to readers who have not read or not finished the book, JK Rowling ties-up the loose ends left by the other books and answers a lot of questions that were asked especially after Half Blood Prince regarding Snape. Just when you think that you know what the outcome in the book is going to be, a spanner is thrown into the works making you guess until the very end. A riviting read which is going to make a cracker of a movie! HIGHLY recommended.
