Fans Crown Deathly Hallows Most Spellbinding Potter Novel

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been voted "Favourite Book of the Harry Potter Series" according to an online poll conducted by MSN Entertainment UK. The survey was held over a two week period from 21st July to 4th:

Just one month after its release, JK Rowling’s final Harry Potter novel, The Deathly Hallows, has got the UK under its spell after being voted the nation’s favourite Potter book in a new poll by MSN Entertainment.

45,000 potty Potter fans cast their votes online at and over a third (37%) agreed that Rowling saved the best for last with the final and darkest instalment of the heptalogy, which sees several of the favourite characters come to a sticky end.

Whilst Rowling’s much hyped second novel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, may have flown off the shelves faster than a golden snitch, it didn’t score so well with MSN’s Potter fans, coming bottom of the list with just 4% of the votes.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the most honoured work in the series, came second in the fantastical list with 15% of the votes, followed by the fourth tale Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which was a favourite for one in seven (14%) Potterites.
