Sometimes it is too long and nothing's happening but when we get closed to the climax and the ending I feel that it was a li'l bit rushed.
In this one the trio did not go back to Hogwarts so that they can hunt for more horcruxes and I was really expecting an epic journey about finding and destroying this horcruxes but I'm not satisfied with what happened to the book, it's okay but it's not epic.
The Deathly Hallows, well the legend/tale about them was pretty good and very nice in a sense of a children's tale. But the elder wand in the story is really confusing with its rules and ownership.
Many died in this one and I felt that they just died like that no justice at all and sometimes I don't know but I don't feel the sad emotion that I should felt. I don't cry when the deaths come and I was very emotional like when Dumbledore and Sirius die I cry, I really cried but this was just blah I don't feel the sadness that I should have felt.
Snape's story was the jewel of this book. It made the book memorable I supposed. I really like him than James Potter, and I still don't get it why he chose to be death eater rather than to be with Lily. And why Snape became a death eater remains unclear. I don't know I really feel sad for him but I don't cry, I just felt like bad for him.
I still recommend it though because it was an amazing journey to finally read the last book, it's just like watching Harry grow from book 1 to book 7. I've become so close to the series that I know when I've kids in the future I let them read the Harry Potters because they're great books in teaching lessons about life and death as well. (less)
So I felt like I need to have a review of the series in general. The first book Hunger Games it was very good and the plot is more like Battle Royal and it's action-packed and the thing that I also love about it is the romance. If you're a sucker for love triangles, this book has an interesting love story. The second book Catching Fire, which is my favorite book among the three because it exceeded the first novel. I have to say that the first one was more of an action-adventure type of book but in the second one it became more of a political thriller kind of book. The third book Mockingjay was the least of my favorite because it was more of a war story and it was much darker than the previous books. Nevertheless the ending/epilogue I really like it and it was kinda good but also very disturbing.
One of the things, I think, that made the series different from others, was that it uses present tense instead of the usual past tense so it's like when you read it you'll observed that the author uses the verb she says instead of she said. And it was very effective because you'll feel that the action was presently happening and it felt real.
I've learn a lot of things from this book. It's very thought provoking and a very good eye opener about human suffering and human nature. Also this a book like the Harry potter series wherein it's really good that you'll definitely reread it. So read it, it's YA but I think the adults will more likely enjoy this too. It's like you're not cool if you don't read it, so read it! (less)
