spoiler-free harry potter post-mortem
the book was a pretty emotional one for me.
a good 4/5ths of it was so dark and gloomy that i found myself in an irritable mood all day sunday because i'd spent the morning in that darkness. i was depressed. is it normal for a story to have such an effect on someone?
i loved dumbledore. i really really did. i was happy to have had him be a big part of this book. i really missed him.
the end took turns i'd never imagined, which i loved. i was fooled by rowling a few times, so good on her!
obv, some characters died i didn't expect. some also lived that i had put a deathwatch on immediately after finishing book 6.
however, the last 20 page or so, the epilogue she stuck there, i absolutely could not stand. i thought it was cheesy and unnecessary and frankly, a bit over the top.
what did you guys think?
also, for a very charming list of obituaries for those characters who lost their lives in book seven, check this. spoilers, obv.
and on an unrelated note: the youtube debate last night was pretty cool. i thought this answer from edwards was perfect. it highlights something that makes a lot of people suspect about obama. obama talks so much of compromise but never talks about how, occasionally, compromise isn't the answer. there are some people who aren't going to budge, some people who don't want to work with you. people want to know that he's going to stand up to the few who refuse to work with him.
