"Mi apro alla chiusura": è uno dei tanti enigmi lasciati da silente con cui Harry Potter deve confrontarsi in questo ultimo, setti...mo libro. E anche la saga stessa, nel giungere alla propria fine, si apre a sorpresa su nuovi mondi, nel passato e nel futuro: getta la luce della meraviglia su dettagli, personaggi ed eventi che pensavamo di conoscere già, rivelandone segreti e significati profondi. Insieme a Harry, nella sua disperata ricerca della verità, ripercorriamo le avventure apparentemente già vissute, riviviamo piccoli fatti e grandi eventi, seguendo il filo della consapevolezza che si dipana e si acuisce in un crescendo di colpi di scena, perdite e conquiste. La conclusione, potente e delicata, piena di luce e vapore, fa venire voglia di rileggere tutto daccapo, per arrivare a chiudere il cerchio. Mai come in questo libro J.K. Rowling dimostra la sua prodigiosa capacità di sorprendere i lettori, di alimentare un fuoco d'artificio che a dieci anni dalla sua prima rivelazione non cessa di lasciarci ammaliati. read more
