Scott's Review:
4 out of 5 stars on October 22, 2005

In almost every way, this book feels like the penultimate book in the series. I guess it helps that it actually is.

We see that the big bad guys group is nearly in full swing. Almost all of Harry's questions are answered. And, perhaps most importantly, the final quest is upon us, and we have a definite quest to accomplish in the seventh book.

I have no way to judge how well this book would read if you haven't followed the previous Harry Potter books. If you have, however, it's almost the big payoff that you've been waiting for. Not that everything is all roses, but it's what you've come to expect from the Harry Potter universe. It's made me look forward to the next, final, book of the series.
