"Starred Review. Surely her editors could have helped her find other methods of building suspense besides the use of ellipses and dashes? And craft fight dialogue that sounds a bit less like it belongs in a comic book? .... we couldn't put Hallows down ourselves. But we believe Rowling, and future readers, deserved even better. Ages 9-12." - Publishers Weekly.
"Starred Review. Throughout, Rowling returns to and embellishes the hallmark themes of the series: the importance of parental influences, the redemptive power of sacrifice, and the strength found in love. These truths are the underpinnings of a finale that is worthy of fans' hopes and expectations." - Booklist.
"Fans of the series will devour this lengthy tome and will be left hoping for more tales from this fully fleshed out fantastic world." - School Library Journal.
"It's hard to imagine a better ending than the one she's written for her saga after 10 years, more than 4,000 pages and close to 400 million copies in print. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows may be a miracle of marketing, but it's also a miraculous book that earns out, emotionally and artistically." - The Washington Post.
"[S]ome lumpy passages of exposition and a couple of clunky detoursbut the overall conclusion and its determination of the main characters' story lines possess a convincing inevitability that make some of the prepublication speculation seem curiously blinkered in retrospect." - New York Times.

Joanne Kathleen Rowling (pronounced rolling) was born on July 31st, 1965 in
Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire, England. Her sister, Di, was born a little
under 2 years later. Rowling can remember telling stories from early on
and writing down her first story when she was 5 or 6 years old - about a rabbit
called Rabbit who got the measles and was visited by friends including a giant
bee called Miss Bee.
She moved house twice while growing up. The first was from Yate, just outside Bristol, to Winterbourne - also close to Bristol. In Winterbourne she was friends with a brother and sister whose surname was Potter. She says she always liked the name, and preferred it to her own because the children always made annoying jokes about rolling pins!
