It was time to revisit the old favorites because, really, what better way to end a year than with the first meeting of a trio of old friends? And that’s what Harry, Hermione, and Ron are at this point.
I’m bumping my rating of this first foray into the wizarding world up from four stars to five because I thought I knew this story. I thought I loved it as much as I could ever love it.
I was wrong.
Terribly and wonderfully wrong.
I picked up on things I’d forgotten, I saw things I’m 100% sure I didn’t see before, and I remembered why I love this world.
I suppose I could say more about what happens in the story but… if you’ve been a thinking, breathing, human being these last fifteen, twenty years, you know who Harry Potter is and what he’s all about.
So… read it if you haven’t read it before and read it again if you’ve read it sixteen times already.
