I finished it at 1.a.m. this morning, I’m really glad that lots of other people were mad enough to stay up reading it as well:lol:
My favourite bit was when Molly finally lets out all that pent up domestic energy and goes for Bellatrix : “YOU’RE NOT TAKING MY DAUGHTER, YOU B*TCH!!!” …has to be the line of the book
Sigh…but of course, my favourite three characters die: Snape, Remus and Tonks…I was so glad about Snape, I’d guessed about him and Lily…had to wake up my husband to tell him that I was right…he didn’t seem terribly impressed for some reason:shrug:
Ahh Snape…I feel he deserves a book in himself, but shouldn’t he be in Gryffindor, his inherent nobility, his capacity for self -sacrifice? I agree with Dumbledore when he says: You know, I sometimes think we Sort too soon…" Although when Snape dies at least for once Slytherin can claim to have the hero, I always thought that the four house divisions were very annoying, and by blurring a few of the boundaries I guess it gives us all more hope for the future.
Kreacher rocks:heart:…I love that bit when he wants to hit Mundungus again with the frying pan: " Perhaps just one more, Master Harry, for luck? "
I also adore Aberforth…funny enough my husband who has only read a few of the books, had a lot of criticisms of Dumbledore…he thought that by never telling anyone the total truth he was to blame for a lot of things that happened in the other books…to me it was very interesting to read about Dumbledores early life, and to find him a more flawed being than you imagine in the first few books.
And now I had better go and take a nap…
