harry potter and the deathly holows

Book Review   by:puneet2001     Original Author: j.k.rowling
ª
This abstract was translated from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
 
'''' Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'''' is the final masterpiece issued from J.K.Rowling''s much experienced kitty .
The book was inagurated on July 21,2007 just after a decade Rowling''s first book came out with the publication '' Harry Potter and the Philosopher''s Stone''.
This book features the events following Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince {2005} and straightway leads to the much expected and anticipated confrontation between Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort.
It is published in the Uk under the Bloomsbury''s banner , in the Usa by Scholastic press, in Canada by Raincoast books and in Australia by Allen and Unwin.
It''s credentials are strong enough as it is released in some 93 countries worldwide and has broken all records of sales globally selling more then eleven million copies in the first twenty four hours following its release.
The previous record {nine millions in the fst day} was held by the Half blooded prince. Harry becomes an Auror for the Ministry of Magic, and is later appointed head of the department. He keeps Sirius''s motorcycle, which Arthur Weasley repaired for him, but he can no longer speak Parseltongue after the destruction of Voldemort''s soul fragment within him.Ginny Weasley plays for the Holyhead Harpies Quidditch team for a time, leaves to establish a family with Harry and later becomes the lead Quidditch correspondent for the Daily Prophet.Ron Weasley works at George''s store for a time, Weasleys'' Wizard Wheezes, then joins Harry as an Auror.Hermione finds her parents in Australia and removes the memory modification charm she had put on them for safety. She initially works for the Ministry of Magic in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, greatly improving life for house elves and their ilk. She later moves to the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and assists in eradicating oppressive, pro-pureblood laws. She was also the only member of the trio to go back and complete her seventh year at Hogwarts.Dumbledore''s relationship with Gellert Grindelwald extended beyond mere friendship; indeed, Rowling has revealed that Dumbledore was gay, and harboured romantic feelings for Grindelwald.<8> Rowling also explained the fates of several secondary characters: George Weasley continues his successful joke shop. He married Angelina Johnson and has two children: a son named Fred, in memory of his late twin brother, and a daughter, Roxanne.Luna Lovegood searches the world for odd and unique creatures. She eventually marries Rolf, a grandson of the famed naturalist Newt Scamander.<7> Her father''s publication, The Quibbler, has returned to its usual condition of "advanced lunacy" and is appreciated for its unintentional humour.Firenze is welcomed back into his herd, who finally acknowledge the virtue of his pro-human leanings.Dolores Umbridge is arrested, interrogated, and imprisoned for crimes against Muggle-borns.Cho Chang went on to marry a Muggle.<9>Neville Longbottom eventually marries Hannah Abbott and lives in a flat above the Leaky Cauldron, when she becomes its new landlady.<10> There have been transformations in the wider wizarding world: Kingsley Shacklebolt is the permanent Minister for Magic, with Percy Weasley working under him as a high official. Among the reforms introduced by Shacklebolt, Azkaban no longer uses Dementors. Consequently, the world is now a "much sunnier place". Harry, Ron, and Hermione have also been instrumental in reforming the Ministry.At Hogwarts, Slytherin House has become more diluted and is no longer the pureblood bastion it once was, although its dark reputation lingers.Voldemort''s jinx on the Defence Against the Dark Arts position is broken with his death. There is now a permanent Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Harry comes to the Defence Against the Dark Arts class to lecture several times a year.A portrait ooes not appear in the headmaster''s office as he abandoned his post. Harry ensures the addition of Snape''s portrait, and publicly reveals Snape''s steadfastness.
