Harry

No spoilers on the post, but don't read the comments if you haven't read book 7. I am done. All I will say is, I laughed. I cried. Every HP fan needs to read the 7th book. It is soooooooo good. J.K. Rowling saved the best for last.

I finished last night/this morning. I think it was perfect! The only disappointment was that she didn't talk about what happened to the Dursley's. And what was that little crying thing in the Kings Cross chapter? And who was Victoria or whoever Teddy was kissing in the end? Whose daughter? And who ended up raising Teddy? Those are the only questions I had at the end. Other than that it was absolutely perfect!

Agreed. It WAS quite brilliant, and I also would have liked to have learned more about the fate of the Dursley's, although, I think it's safe to assume that, given Uncle Vernon's attitude toward abnormality, they probably all lead rather unremarkable lives sensa Harry's abnormal presence. The little crying thing in King's Cross was the part of Voldemort's soul that had been residing in Harry. It showed up there since it had also "died" when Harry's body was hit with the killing curse. Hence, Harry was now free from that part of Voldemort that his "surviving" kept alive. Rowena should probably be the one to explain the "snogging" at the end. You see, when two people love each other very much. . .

I assume Victoire was the daughter of Bill and Fleur, since her name sounds like Victory in French, and she would be about the age to have been born shortly after the victory over Voldemort.

I think Teddy was raised by Tonks' mother, since she was the only one left. I think the godfather takes care of the child only when there are no living relatives to do it.

What I want to know is, what did Dudley see when he saw the dementors in book 5? She said she would answer that later. Also, what did Lily and James do for a living? Rowling is going to do an encyclopedia about this stuff, so I look forward to reading that when it comes out as well.

I thought that Victoire was the daughter of Fleur too. All I have to say that the Malfoys deserve to win Parents of the Year!

I was wondering about why Harry said that the wand at the end was truly Draco's? Somehow I missed that connection? Can anyone fill me in?

Jen said...

The elder wand sensed that Draco was a great wizard, and that he was the one who truly defeated Dumbledore, because even though Snape killed Dumbledore, DD was at Draco's mercy in the end of book 6. Because Snape was collaborating with Dumbledore, the elder wand would have ignored him. And since Harry had defeated Draco, the wand now truly belonged to Harry.
