This was both an excellent and heartbreaking book by Jodi Picoult about the relationship between two sisters. The story has a very interesting twist at the end that pulls all the pieces of the plot together like a jigsaw puzzle.

I have read this book 7 times. At the least. It is thrilling, heart-stopping and most of all, magical. Something keeps drawing me to it, and I feel the need to reread the same words over and over again.

The Deathly Hallows is by far my favourite Harry book and I would recommend it to everyone and anyone. Even if you're not into fantasy/magic, etc, you will find yourself surprised. (But perhaps start at the Philosopher's Stone first so you actually know what's going on.)

Anyway, you have to read it. This is the Potter generation. We live the Potter generation.

Fabulous, thrilling, an absolute heart-racer. Initially at the beginning of the novel, I had my doubts about the rest of the book. However it didn't disappoint; I was so hooked on the story that I stayed up reading it until 1 am without even realising. And when I forced myself to put down the book and go to sleep, I lay awake for a further 15 minutes before grabbing the book and kept reading it until 2 am. 

This novel is so, so, so fantastic. So fantastic. Ah... just... so fantastic.

I cannot say I particuarly enjoyed this book all that much. The storyline/idea of the 'magical pants' was unrealistic and, to be honest, not very entertaining. Really; how is the idea of a pair of somehow 'bewitched' pants that magically fit four girls of different body types supposed to be entertaining?

Most of the story, besides the part about the pants, of course, is suitable and somewhat interesting. However the story of the character Carmen (or something or other...), to me, was horribly written and seemed unintelligent. The part about her new stepmother not liking her because she came from a different race was unexpected and irrational. It seemed like it was a last-minute add on, minutes before the deadline of the book.

This is the book I probably like least (not dislike) out of the seven Harry Potter books. Is it because it's a bad book? Defenitley not. Is it because I don't enjoy what the book is telling me? Perhaps. Or is it merely because the vivid, graphic ideas and detail put terrifying pictures nightmares into my head? Probably.

JK Rowling has done an unbelievably magnificent job at creating such a masterpiece, a piece of the jigsaw puzzle that she was to write numerous books later- a heart racer, page turner and arm-hair raiser.
