I cannot for the life of me write a decent review of any of the Harry Potter books. I grew up with them and that makes them a large part of my late childhood and years as a teenager. I reread many of them in anticipation of the publication of the new books. But I have only read The Deathly Hallows twice, in 2007 and, as part of my Harry Potter marathon, in 2014. I started this marathon in November after Litchick came up with the wonderful idea and read them back to back, leaving no time for writing reviews. Since the last one is still fresh in my memory, I'm going to start with The Deathly Hallows.
