Re: What was your number 1 favorite thing in the book?

Yes, considering that he, Harry, hermione and Ron were, literally, all in the same boat in PS, it was satisfying to see them all claim a horcrux and play their part.

Re: What was your number 1 favorite thing in the book?

I am re-reading DH (to my 8 year old daughter) and am finding a few nuggets I missed the first time.

Keeping with Her predilection for referencing the works of Lewis Carroll, She has Xeno Lovegood, who is obviously Mad as a Hatter (or at least a March Hare), serve tea to H, H, & R while he simultaneously debates the existence of the Deathy Hallows with them and holds them at bay for the Ministry Death Eaters. The scene is chaotic and bizarre---not unlike Alice's tea party. And the Crumple Horned Snorkack has always reminded me a little of a Snark....

Also, the entire excursion to Godric's Hollow is beautifully imagined and written.

Re: What was your number 1 favorite thing in the book?

As I said in the previous post, I am reading DH to my daughter, and finding stuff I missed the first time.

The scene where Harry, Ron, & Dean bestow Dobby with articles of their own clothing is especially poignant---very touching.

An aside to any who were at all dissatisfied with DH---read it again. I have found it a much more enjoyable read the second time, and I am ashamed of how much detail and nuance I missed in my blind panic to finish before anyone could spoil it for me.

I have to second that opinion, and I liked it to begin with. I Read it twice now, and have listened to it on audio all the way too, you pick up on things listening that you don't reading as well! Still a bit "miffed" about how short that last chapter was though without any "real" information.

Re: What was your number 1 favorite thing in the book?


Unfortunately for me, as I read again and again, I dont like it so much as first time. It seems to me that she rushed this a lot. She could have asked more time and done a better job. I loved hallows, and the whole story leading to them, but she just botched up the ending. Harry sounded more suicidal, and almost became a super hero.
The epilogue downright stunk. There were a ton of things she could have said, and deliver a master ending to the story. It has taken her years and years to prepare and write this. Why the heck end it in such a hush hush?
