I agree with that one.Great book.
I was really surprised at that, honestly. When I read about Fred, I gasped, "No!" but it's Dobby (poor Dobby) that's stuck with me.I love Fred and George, and though it took me a while to realize it, it's terribly sad that the last of the Marauders is gone (Lupin, who I rather liked too)...but there's just something about Dobby's unfailing loyalty.And that epitaph...so simple and sad. :-(Though Kreacher was all sorts of awesome at the end. :-)
Just finished. Kreacher rocks. I cried at his loyality. Dobby true to the end. Hedwig's death so unfair in the beginning. Losing Fred, Tonks, Lupin, Mad-Eye hurt.Yet the ending, made be fall apart. Albus Severus. Need I say more.
I am ashamed to say that I forgot about Hedwig. :-(Remus and Tonks...Tonks was funny, but Remus didn't really surprise me -- he was always portrayed as very careworn.The ending...meh...to be honest -- I thought it was cheesy. But of course it left 19 years' worth of material for her to write about, or she could do a new series about Albus.I think a neat follow-up (though probably aimed at a more adult audience) would be an exploration of how you go about healing society -- the Sorting Hat and its admonitions to stand together still aren't being taken seriously...just look at how Albus dreaded being sorted into Slytherin.
