"[T]rue to its roots, [the series] ends...with good old-fashioned closure: a big-screen, heart-racing, bone-chilling confrontation and an epilogue that clearly lays out people's fates....While Ms. Rowling's astonishingly limber voice still moves effortlessly between Ron's adolescent sarcasm and Harry's growing solemnity, from youthful exuberance to more philosophical gravity, Deathly Hallows is, for the most part, a somber book that marks Harry's final initiation into the complexities and sadnesses of adulthood." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

What to Read After Harry Potter


Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"This is a powerful, unforgettable setup for the finale. The hardest thing about Half-Blood Prince is where it leaves us — in mourning for who has been lost, anxious to learn how Rowling will wrap up a saga that millions wish would go on and on." Associated Press

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"If [Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire] was the work of a born storyteller still sorting out her technique, Phoenix is the smooth product of a natural at the top of her game. Phoenix is even longer than Goblet, but it never idles or slackens. There's less reliance on startling tricks and reversals and more attention to the underlying organic structures of art....It's a sign that wherever she takes us next, we can't expect the old rules to apply anymore. But that, after all, is what growing up is all about." Laura Miller, Salon.com

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire "Like all great fantasy sagas, the Harry Potter books have grown narratively, morally and psychologically more complex as the series progresses. There is a special pressure on a writer who midway through a series finds herself entrusted with the imagination of a huge number of readers. That Rowling has done nothing to break that faith seems a deed as brave and noble as any her hero has accomplished." Charles Taylor, Salon.com

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"The main characters and the continuing story both come along so smartly...that the book seems shorter than its page count: have readers clear their calendars if they are fans, or get out of the way if they are not." Kirkus Reviews

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets "Fans of the phenomenally popular Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone won't be disappointed....The novel is marked throughout by the same sly and sophisticated humor found in the first book, along with inventive, new, matter-of-fact uses of magic that will once again have readers longing to emulate Harry and his wizard friends." Susan L. Rogers, School Library Journal

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"On the whole, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is as funny, moving and impressive as the story behind it. J. K. Rowling, a teacher by training, was a 30-year-old single mother living on welfare in a cold one-bedroom flat in Edinburgh when she began writing it in longhand during her baby daughter's nap times. But like Harry Potter, she had wizardry inside, and has soared beyond her modest Muggle surroundings to achieve something quite special." Michael Winerip, The New York Times Book Review, 1999
