Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K Rowling
A fiction novel
759 pages long
This book is sufficiently challenging for a high school sophomore for many reasons. Some of the main reasons are: The very long length of the book and the fact that this most recent Harry Potter book has been read by numerous adults, some of which whom I know personally and they are very gifted readers and have said, “this is no book for kids”. Another reason is the difficulty of the vocabulary in this novel. Just dappling through the first chapter I saw five words that I did not know the meaning of. And the last main reason is there are dark and some adult themes in the previous books and I have been assured by friends that this book is even more so filled with themes that younger kids and students can not grasp. In conclusion, this is no book “just for kids”. It is sufficiently challenging for a high school sophomore.
I chose this book because I spent the months leading up to, and during the summer that this book came out re-reading the series preparing myself for the final novel. I enjoyed the first six, and the last is supposed to be the best.
