Just finished it!
Oh man, I cried every time someone "good" died: Hedwig, Mad-Eye, Dobby, Fred, Lupin, Tonks... even Snape! (Did I miss anyone?) I bawled when Dobby died! He's my favorite! (I am so disappointed they have left him out of the 4th and 5th movies!) I am glad she didn't "kill off" any of the main three. I think it woud have been too traumatic!
Yay, for Kreacher, and Snape! I knew they couldn't be all that bad, especially Snape! Neville is a hero! Good for him, since he was almost
"The Chosen One"! Molly's line to Bellatrix was classic!
Ron and Hermonine kissing furiously when when Ron suggested they save the Hogwarts house-elves, love it!
I loved all the "minor" references to the other books! Anybody else catch Herminone's line to Ron about "Are you a wizard, or what?"
when he was trying to find out how to push the spot on the Whomping Willow without Crookshanks? He said pretty much the same to her when they were trying to get past the Devil's Snare in Book 1 and she was trying to figure out how to light a fire without wood!
I am so pleased with this book. It was nice to see everything "come together.
