GUEST,livelylass BS: Deathly Hallows Part 2 (55* d) RE: BS: Deathly Hallows Part 2 19 Jul 11


"All part of the Messianic simplicity of the thing really. One thing I hate about JK's storytelling is that you get though a whole book to be told the story in the last few pages (not unique to JK I grant). That story is always being better than the cliche-ridden public-school jolly-broomsticks bollox"

As for "Messianic" why are we never told *why* Harry gets resurrected at the end? It just IS and we are expected to accept it simply because wise old Dumbledore tells Harry he can go home now, no questions asked.

JK's writing is great for the vivid creation of the whole Hogarts world - it's terribly easy to visualise and the action sequences are dynamic and can be easily depicted - all great stuff for kids. But I think both quite a bit of the plot and the structuring of the story is weak - lots of "and then, and then, and then" which gets explained at the end (as you say). You get the feeling JK is just making most of it up as she goes along - which is not so good for adults but probably of less concern to kids (we were taught not to do precisely that in junior school oddly enough.)
