The final installment of the Harry Potter series, The Deathly Hallows, is both a pleasure and a pain to read.
Harry, Hermione and Ron forgo their final year at Hogwarts to embark on the dangerous search for Voldemort's horcruxes in order to defeat him and ensure the safety of the Muggle and Magical worlds. The journey is rife with danger and adventure, and for perhaps the first time we are given a slightly deeper insight into the inner demons faced by our young hero, Harry, as he comes face-to-face with death like never before.
While the series is originally aimed for younger readers, some themes within this final installment may perhaps be a little mature for very young readers. The Deathly Hallows is, however, a very easy read in typical JK Rowling fashion.
If you haven't bothered with the series before, no matter your age or gender there is something for everyone in these novels. And Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is no exception.
