Books: Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows
By J. K. Rowling
Read by Jim Dale
Audiobook 21 hours

I read this book in 2007, but decided to listen to the audiobook recently since the movie (part 1) will be out soon. I read it in seven hours then, a third of the time it took to listen to it. Fortunately I listened to it mostly in the car.

In this book, He Who Must Not Be Named has risen to power and created a rather fascist rule, one in which pure blood wizards will rule and put the poor muggles in their place.

Harry and his friends Hermione and Ron go on the run while Harry attempts to carry out Dumbledor's last orders. Destroy the horcruxes, which are pieces of Vlodemort's soul. They have a lot of adventures. I remember thinking when I read this the first time that this would be a very action-packed movie.

For a total synopsis of the book, read my 2007 review.
