It's no longer safe for Harry at Hogwarts, so he and his best friends, Ron and Hermione, are on the run. Professor Dumbledore has given them clues about what they need to do to defeat the dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, once and for all, but it's up to them to figure out what these hints and suggestions really mean.
Their cross-country odyssey has them searching desperately for the answers, while evading capture or death at every turn. At the same time, their friendship, fortitude, and sense of right and wrong are tested in ways they never could have imagined.
The ultimate battle between good and evil that closes out this final chapter of the epic series takes place where Harry's Wizarding life began: at Hogwarts. The satisfying conclusion offers shocking last-minute twists, incredible acts of courage, powerful new forms of magic, and the resolution of many mysteries.
Above all, this intense, cathartic book serves as a clear statement of the message at the heart of the Harry Potter series: that choice matters much more than destiny, and that love will always triumph over death.

I'm so sad that I've come to the end of the audiobooks. :( I drew this one out as long as I possibly could. Jim Dale is a fantastic narrator. I'll give them all a re-listen in the near future.
The extra star (my fairly rare fourth star) for this last item in the Harry Potter series reflects my satisfaction at a successful wrap-up of what had become by the end an exceedingly complicated multigenerational tangle of motives and magic. Just as we had the explication of Voldemort's past in Hal...
No doubt, this book has its faults. Absolutely zero foreshadowing of the deathly hallows. Retconning of Harry's invisibility cloak's superiority to all other invisibility cloaks. (Why not bring some of this up in GoF?) The over-reliance on conveniently overheard conversations they have no business o...
This one seemed more interesting to me than the others have been, i think. But i think that was mainly because i was expecting certain things that never happened. For example, i thought Draco's character would be developed some more. Dumbledore's backstory was interesting and i liked meeting his bro...
