Harry Potter, Book 7
June 17 - June 26 2019
I finished listening to this book today, the last in the series on the anniversary of the first book being published. Something about the merge of beginning and ending feels so special to me. Re-exploring this series through audiobook has been a wonderful ride and one I’m sure I will take again. These books lose no wonder, joy, amazement, sadness, astonishment or magic over the years.
The Deathly Hallows is the book in the series I am least familiar with as I have only read it once before this so the surprises were truly surprising. The joy and sorrow I felt was so familiar but still somehow new. Harry, Ron and Hermoine’s sacrifices, the determination of those against Voldermort and the valor shown resonate deeply throughout the book. I feel a small whole in my heart now that it is over.
