Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
I have spent the last two days immersed in this last book of the Harry Potter series, which arrived in my mailbox promptly, as promised, in a book box prominently marked "Do Not Deliver Before July 21". Am I the oldest Harry Potter fan? Warning:do not read this book unless you have read the previous ones! This is the final chapter (or two) of what is actually one long novel, with little or no explanation of who many of the characters are or of their past actions which bear upon the plot of this book, which is a gathering of all the loose threads with a slam-bang climax. This is not my review. I am still chewing over what I think about this final book. But do not give it to young children!
