This is the final book in the extraordinary Harry Potter series and the best out of the lot. First before I do the review on this great book I would just like to say what a great adventure the Harry Potter series was for me and I have read the series a couple of times now, but still cannot take in how amazing this series has been for me and I hope for you too.
Harry is waiting in Privet Drive for the Order of the Phoenix is coming to escort him safely away without Voldemort and his Death Eaters knowing (if possible). But what is Harry up to this year? How can Harry and his friends fulfil the massive and on-the-verge-of impossible task that Professor Dumbledore has left him? And what is this rubbish talk of Harry, Ron and Hermione not attending Hogwarts? Read the final book of the great Harry Potter series to unravel the secrets of Harry Potter.

Naruto is a good series to read. It is about an adventure of three people Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura with their Sensai Kakashi. But they are ninjas who want naruto for his nine tailed power so that they can rule the world!!!!!. Of course, they never get him so it won’t happen. I can’t wait for the next series.

This book is not just about the war in Troy. Its about the city which has been under siege for more than 10 years. It really focuses on gossip and the gods and how they changed the outcome of the war, it also focuses on teenagers at the time and how they were affected by this terrible war.

I really like this book because it was great to learn about Troy but not just the war, it wasn’t a recount as such it had a story line and that was what I liked about it. I would give it a rating of about 9/ 10

The Children of Húrin, which is written by the legendary J.R.R Tolkien, is a wonderful adventure book which includes betrayal, romance, war, tragedy and lost love. It is about a family broken up and rejoicing at the end, but ends very sadly. It is one of the best books I have ever read and I enjoyed reading it as I like the genre which it is placed in, fantasy.
The book has an excellent storyline to it and can really take your concentration from everything else and bring it to the text from the book and keep it there; you wouldn’t want to put the book down. The book was written by J.R.R Tolkien during World War II while he was in the trenches of his army, but published later on. I would recommend this book to anyone and I would be certain I would get a good result back from the reader.
