WE'RE DONE

with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I think the experience of reading it aloud together - although frustrating at times - was vastly improved by the experience of reading it a bit more slowly, and having someone on-hand with whom to bounce around theories as we progressed through the story.

I really really enjoyed it. The magic lasted straight through that last, climactic scene in the Great Hall.

The last remaining unresolved mysteries for me are:
1) What do Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny do?
2) What on earth was Aberforth doing with the goats?

So, what did you think, now that I can finally talk to those of you who finished it weeks ago?

  1. If you go to the Leaky Cauldron website they have an interview by J.K. Rowling explaining what happens to everyone after Hogwarts. It helped me to deal and was very interesting.

  2. Thank you! I bet Ginny has a notable career too.

  4. Motherhood and Chaser! I love it. Is that speculation or did Rowling say it somewhere?

  5. I have another mystery, or maybe just proof of my poor reading comprehension when suffering the after-effects of food poisoning: how did Neville get Griffindyor's sword back from the goblin?
