Publisher's Summary

"'Give me Harry Potter', said Voldemort's voice, 'and none shall be harmed. Give me Harry Potter, and I shall leave the school untouched. Give me Harry Potter, and you will be rewarded.'" 

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....

Having now become classics of our time, the Harry Potter audiobooks never fail to bring comfort and escapism to listeners of all ages. With its message of hope, belonging, and the enduring power of truth and love, the story of the Boy Who Lived continues to delight generations of new listeners.

I'm so sad it's over!!

I have to admit I always wondered what the big deal was about this series; although I saw some of the movies years ago and enjoyed them, I never read the books. When they became available on Kindle/Audible however I ordered the first book for my 8 y.o. daughter thinking she’d like to listen to it. Then I thought I’d try it out and see if I liked it myself; I was a little hesitant having already seen the movie and worried that listening to the book might be repetitive. But, I learned quickly that I was SO WRONG. There is SO much more detail, storyline, insight and humor, amongst many other things, woven into the pages that of course you don’t see on a DVD. I ended up listening to all 7 of the audiobooks in just under 2 months, and I finished Deathly Hallows about 4 days ago and I feel SO EMPTY! Lol! There is nothing else that will measure up/compare to this series or its writer. I am going to start on JK Rowling’s ‘adult’ books next I think, but I have half a mind to re-listen to my favorite Harry Potter books first, even this soon after finishing them, which I’ve NEVER done. I love the characters, the effortless way the story builds throughout all 7 books and I love the fact that something that might have happened in book 2 or 3 might be referenced in later books. I also loved the “real” way that certain things that weren’t obvious in the beginning of the series (i.e. whom Harry ends up with) develop in a way that feels completely natural and of course like that was meant to happen all along. Nothing in any of the HP books feels forced or conveniently created to serve a plotline that otherwise might be struggling. Despite its theme of witchcraft and wizardry Harry Potter seems very human and even relatable at times, thanks to the genius woman who created him, especially when it comes to his relationship with his closest friends. I think that’s why it’s so hard to leave them behind.

Oh and yes, I agree with many other reviewers that Jim Dale was the one and only narrator who could've brought this story to life in the amazing way that he did. So many characters, so many distinct voices, and he nailed them all in a way that I found myself comparing HIS version to the movie versions and, in many cases, finding I preferred Jim's.

I will miss Harry, Hermione, Ron, Sirius, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Snape, all the characters who made these books what they were, but I might have to revisit them soon because I’m not sure I’ll be able to handle this impending post-HP depression hahaha. Wish me luck...

Finally finished!

What an amazing series!
Jim Dale, best narrator on the planet. Different voices for each character, brilliant. So easy to visualize each one's personality.

Pity Those Who Live Without Love

“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all those who live without love.”

Story: The action, suspense, danger, adventure and magic you find in this book is extraordinary. J.K. Rowling did a wonderful job of pulling a number of pieces together to wrap up the story. The book explains so much more than could be squeezed into the movie and it really illuminates a number of things that did not make sense to me just from the movie. Classic example of how the book is significantly better. I feel most people will have similar feelings, but the story and connection between Harry, Dumbledore and Snape really makes this book amazing. Also, the detail on the Deathly Hallows and the relationship to Harry was awesome.

Narration: I caved and gave this 5 stars. I still feel that some of the female voices are lacking and, for me, are less than stellar. Luna and Ginny come to mind. That said, overall, the narration is great and very engaging. Jim Dale was able to bring the characters to life and really pulled me into the story.

Overall: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is a fantastic end to the series. I knew that this would be different from the movie (again, having never read/listened to all of the books until now), but I had no clue how in the dark I was from just seeing the movies. So much was explained so well. My mind was also blown when I learned about the more than probable relationship between Harry and the Peverell family. Seriously, this series is amazing! If you have not already done so, listen to this series!

What can I say, Harry Potter is the best!

Jim Dale is the most talented narrator and makes the books come to life even more so than the movies.

Culmination of Genius

J M Rolling brings it all together in this crescendo of a novel that brilliantly ties up every loose end and story arch from her previous novels. The battles, from heroic frenzied war scenes to inward moral dilemmas bring us insights anew into our most beloved fictional friends and hated literary enemies. Impressive, supremely satisfying , and absolutely her best work yet.

Incredible last installment to a great adventure!

Once it got rolling, you simply couldn't stop listening. Started off full of doubt and worry, but the story arc was perfect in the end!
