As he climbs into the sidecar of Hagrid's motorbike and takes to the skies, leaving Privet Drive for the last time, Harry Potter knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters are not far behind. The protective charm that has kept Harry safe until now is broken, but he cannot keep hiding. The Dark Lord is breathing fear into everything Harry loves and to stop him Harry will have to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes. The final battle must begin - Harry must stand and face his enemy....

Neither Can Live While The Other Survives
Not only would I, I've already given away dozens of copies as gifts to friends and family. This is the only literary series ever written that keeps the quality of the writing high and getting better in each volume, right up to the very last word, while not forgetting or dropping or bungling a single minor character or secondary plot line.This is the book that grabs the reader by the heart and twists, as young people are forced to strike out on their own to save the world from unspeakable evil. More than once, all appears lost, and Harry and the reader think things can't possibly get any worse....until help arrives at the last second, from the most unlikely of sources!!
The Battle of Hogwarts; Ginny's kiss; Harry's parents' reappearance; Harry's ultimate sacrifice; the shocking revelations about Severus Snape that turn everything Harry and the reader thought they knew about him upside down; the riveting scene in which all seems lost until so many unlikely combatants (including centaurs, house-elves, hippogriffs, and giants (including Hagrid's brother) join the fray....and of course the brilliant series epilogue, Nineteen Years Later, which all by itself is easily worth the cost of the book.
This is Mr. Dale's magnum opus, in which he is able to brilliantly portray not just characters of all ages and both genders, but characters of all sorts who are not even human! He deserves worldwide acclaim for unparalleled narration of this or any series. This is a breathtaking achievement.
Absolutely, and I almost did, taking time off of school and work to listen, and stopping literally only to sleep!!This is the best novel you'll read this year; despite the fact that it is the series finale, it also easily stands alone and is a fully adult novel.
