The question people are asking is; did it live up to the hype? In my opinion the story was everything we’ve come to expect about the stories of this young Wizard. Although at times the pace seemed to drag, in a sense it was appropriate for the character development. I am not going to provide any spoilers here because I feel that the best part about stories is that you have to discover them for yourself. I personally feel that the story had a good ending. I’m 35 years old and I’ll tell you that there were times in this book where I was laughing out loud or on the verge of te... giant lump in the throat.
There are points where you want to cheer, and others where you wish you could put the book down and hope what you’re reading isn’t going to happen. I think its a great story. But don’t take my word for it. If you haven’t read the Harry Potter series, do so. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
