The article describes how Christian themes wound into the book are removed from the movie by comparing the final confrontation across the two mediums. Even if you don’t buy the Christian interpretation (though I have . . . → Read More: Review Addendum: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, pt 2 – book comparison
