Potter: The Review Is In?

harry1.jpgThe New York Times has reviewed the final Harry Potter book. Which surprises me. If you wish to read the book without knowing anything, stop reading this post!

The reviewer doesn’t spoil the ending, but she does write about the finale in general terms: The book ends, she writes, “with good old-fashioned closure: a big screen, heart-racing, bone-chilling confrontation and an epilogue that clearly lays out people’s fates. Getting to the finish line is not seamless — the last portion of the final book has some lumpy passages of exposition and a couple of clunky detours — but the overall conclusion of the series and its determination of the main characters’ storylines possess a convincing inevitability that make some of the pre-publication speculation seem curiously blinkered in retrospect.”

She adds that “for the most part, [this is] a somber book that marks Harry’s final initiation into the complexities and sadnesses of adulthood.”
