Realmente es un libro en el que, a priori, no una trama tan potente pero, al mismo tiempo, te aporta mucha información sobre el pasado de Voldemort (de lo mejor del libro), profundiza en personajes más secundarios y, en general, sienta bien las bases de lo que será el final de la historia. Sin embargo, estuve mucho más enganchada con el anterior (y eso que es casi el doble de extenso que este) y puede que este libro sea de los que menos me ha gustado de la saga.

Si bien me gusta la trama, cómo se va desarrollando, el mundo en el que se envuelve, siento que cada vez me gustan menos sus personajes, o por lo menos los más principales. Vale, los protagonistas son adolescentes y actúan como tal, pero ¿era necesario seguir con las peleas entre ellos? Medio libro se pasan enfadados Ron y Hermione y, aunque todos intuimos el porqué, ¿medio libro? ¿En serio? En cuanto a las relaciones que se forman:
Spoiler me gusta la relación de Harry y Ginny, pero me ha parecido poco natural cómo surge (de la noche a la mañana) a diferencia de la relación de Harry y Cho. En mi opinión, podrían haber hecho que Harry empezara a sentir cosas a finales del anterior o desde el principio de este. En cuanto a la relación de Lupin y Tonks, me encantan los dos, por separado y juntos, pero podrían habernos metido más interacción entre ellos.

What a f***ing ride! I am forever resentful at Snape, I do not care if there is a purpose for this (which I know there will be, or else people who like his character despite what he did would just be complete psychos). I feel like people will just laugh at me because I know so little but speak as if I know a lot. So hit me up with those Deathly Hallows so I can understand why JK Rowling had to play with my heart like that.

This is the oddest review I've ever written and this is because this book clearly fucked me up. It's so good, guys. Wish I didn't wait until being 24 to read this.

Amazing per usual. JK's detail and pace throughout this novel is what really makes it fantastic!

This series is so delightful. Each book expands further on world building and character development. I am devastated to be going into the last book of the series.
