Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows

Finally, the last sequel of Harry Potter [Indonesia-translated] has been released in January 14, midnight in all official bookstores all over the country. I myself got the book in the morning straightly after the Gramedia Kelapa Gading Mall was open.

It's about the time when The Chosen One; Harry Potter starts his journey to destroy all 4 remaining Horcruxes of Lord Voldermort so he can seize the possibility to kill Voldemort - who is so close to get what people call immortality life because of his 7 Horcruxes [will be eight with his own entity], there are Tom Riddle's diary [Which has been destroyed by Harry in the Chamber of Secret in his second grade at Hogwarts], Marvolo Gaunt's Slytherin ring [already been destroyed too by Albus Dumbledore, but with sacrificing his right hand], Slytherin's necklace, Helga Hufflepuff's trophy, Rowena Ravenclaw's diadem, Nagini [Voldemort's snake]
and half of Harry Potter's life.

Harry - accompanied by Ron and Hermione - doesn't go back to Hogwarts anymore. He makes some travels to some places such as Godric Hollow [His house where his parents had lived. And later it also discovered the old tale about the three Hallows that can beat death]. The the three fellas continue their journey to Forest of Dean, Xeno Lovegood's house, Malfoy's house, Bill & Fleur's cottage, Gringotts until they go to Hogwarts to find another Horcrux based on what Harry saw in her mind which is connected with Voldemort's.

The battle in Hogwarts is unbearable. Many lives been sacked to death, including the people Harry loves so much: Mad-Eye Moody, Hedwig [Harry's owl], Fred Weasley, Nymphadora Tonks, Remus Lupin, Dobby [Hogwarts' elf] and Colin Creevy. One shocking moment is where Voldemort kills Snape in order to take control of the Elder Wand [Voldemort thinks The Elder Wand is belong to Snape, when the fact is that wand is belong to Harry himself because he had beat Malfoy - the former master of Elder Wand]. In dying condition, Snape gives his memories to Harry, and that is the time when Harry finally realizes who Severus Snape really is. Snape never cheat on Dumbledore, that he remains loyal to him even until he dead.

When Voldemort gives Harry one-hour time to think, Harry realizes that he shouldn't sacrifice any more innocent life, he should be the one who fight Voldemort. He himself, not Ron, not even Hermione or the Order of the Phoenix or Dumbledore's Army. So he - silently - goes to forbidden forest to face Voldemort. Before they meet, Harry opened the snitch that Dumbledore had inherited to him and he saw his mom, dad, Lupin & Sirius came out from the Resurrection Stone and encouraged him. Feel a bit secure, he walks himself to Voldemort

And Voldemort kills him with Avada Kedavra curse, but strangely... Harry wasn't die. Why's that so?

Hmmm... I can't tell you more for I know I will throw the surprising thing out from you. So you'd better got to the bookstore and get one for yourself... NOW!!! lol
