Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

For my mother-in-law, brothers and anyone else who doesn’t want to be spoiled, read no further.

I was right.

I was right.

I was right.

Was I correct about everything? Not really.

Did I divine the secret of the horcruxes and the hallows exactly. No, not exactly.

Here, in the order in which they were destroyed (and by whom) are Lord Voldemort’s Horcruxes:

  1. Tom Riddle’s Diary – Harry
  2. Marvolo Gaunt’s Ring – Dumbledore
  3. Salazar Slytherin’s Locket – Ron
  4. Helga Hufflepuff’s Cup – Hermione
  5. Rowena Ravenclaw’s Diadem – Crabbe
  6. Harry Potter – Lord Voldemort
  7. Nagini – Neville Longbottom

So I left out Nagini, but I thought the snake might still be a Horcrux. Everyone naturally thought that LV knew about Harry Potter (or suspected as much) but, ultimately, LV’s arrogance of many things magical was his ultimate downfall.

So, yeah, I’m done and I feel like I had a pretty good read on the way things would turn out.

My one disappointment is that Neville didn’t kill Bellatrix Lestrange, but his courage in facing LV and killing Nagini was a great scene.

I can’t wait for more epilogue details or the supposedly forthcoming encyclopedia, but J.K. Rowling deserves a rest.

Anyhow, I loved the book and I’m glad it’s finished so I can re-read from the beginning with all the knowledge I now have.

Accio Book!
