I’m a huge fan of loving books that don’t get the best reviews, especially when I go into them with little to no expectations and end up getting a wallop from the story right to my gut. With only 75 pages to go, I have to say that this is easily one of my favorite HP stories in the franchise. Granted, it’s told from the writing fingertips of a playwright, but I’ve always been fond of reading plays like A Streetcar Named Desire and Glengarry Glen Ross, so I don’t mind the formatting in the least.
Just between the rotating greatest hits playlist of characters alone, I am truly amazed by this book. The story is fabulous and some of the character quotes rival anything said in the previous novels.
The world changes and we change with it. I am better off in this world. But the world is not better. And I don’t want that.
If you can make your peace early on with the writing style and format changes, then you should find this entry of the Wizarding World to be warm, hospitable, and ravenously enthralling.
