ABOUT DEATHLY HALLOWS - SPOILERS!!!

0045 // RPattz ~ Crazy Times, 5


WHAT I THINK OF THIS FINAL BOOK = SPOILERS OF COURSE!



Okay. I begin saying that this is the best book of the series.
There's so much action in it. Everything is described perfectly. Jo knows exactly how to communicate the emotions she'd like to give. She's a .. genius.
Love the plot, love the characters, LOVE EVERYONE/EVERYTHING in this book.


* THE DEATHS
Beginning with Hedwig, and then Mad-Eye, Dobby ;_________________;
Hedwig and Dobby made me burst into tears.
I was expecting Lupin and Tonks' death.
Just because I have always been CONVINCED that all the Marauders would be dead before the end of the series. And that's what happened.
Sirius doesn't come back, nor James (well of course they appear during the book like "ghosts" or just memories).
Wormtail dies because he has a debt towards Harry, who saved his life in the third book.
And dies.
Lupin was the last, and he couldn't die now that he's married, right?
Well, that's simple.
Make also his wife die.
Their death made me cry too ;___; But I was kinda "prepared" for these ones.
FRED.
This is the most unexpected among all the other deaths.
I mean .. I would have NEVER thought of Fred dying.
Fred & George are an INSTITUTION. They ALWAYS laugh, they ALWAYS know how to make an horrible atmosphere, an happy one.
.. and he dies.
Then Ted Tonks (I really wouldn't like to be Andromeda Black Tonks, who sees her husband, her daughter, her son-in-law, and her sister - okay she doesn't care about Bellatrix, I know - die!) ..
Crabbe dies. .. Oh really?
Bellatrix dies. I must admit I was .. a bit upset.
I mean she's cruel and everything, but she's Bellatrix one of my favorite characters among the BAD ONES. Mean till the end.
Scrimgeour dies. Saving Harry too. Well, not directly, but he refuses to tell the Death Eaters where he is. That's kind of him, right?
Oh and .. also Colin Creevey dies.

And then .. Snape.


* SEVERUS SNAPE
That he was GOOD was one of my CONVICTION.
I thought it reading HBP and I keep thinking it throughout this book.
And I was pretty right.
He dies saying "Look ... at ... me" .. to Harry of course.
Why? Because he has always been in love with Lily, Harry's mother.
And Harry has the same eyes of her and Snape .. wanted to see her eyes in his last moment.
I cried so much for him ;__;
He has been protecting Harry since he was one!
Since Voldemort threatened the Potter family!
Because he LOVED Lily.
He became a spy for the Order just after her death, and despite his *hate* towards Harry, he always always always PROTECTED him.
There's a whole chapter about his memories, the Prince's tale.
And you really cannot hate him.
He's one of the BEST characters of the whole series, because he's not totally bad, but not even totally good. He's .. I don't know. He's perfect. Thanks Severus!


* RON & HERMIONE
Ahm .. TOLD YOU SO?!
Ahahaha, okay, no.
Well that was pretty obvious. Saw that coming!
The book is FULL of R/Hr moments.
Ron has changed so much. In every little things he does he tries to make Hermione feel special. When she cries he's always there for first, he's always ready to hug her when she needs to be comforted. GO RON!
At the wedding, when Viktor appears, I .. screamed!!
When you want something R/HR to happen you HAVE TO CALL Viktor!
GO VIKTOR! Ahahahah, you see him for the last time.
And Ron actually asks Hermione to dance. I wanted to cry.
I mean .. this has been my Potter-related dream since I start reading the series.
THEY'RE SO MEANT TO BE.

Other R/HR MOMENTS I loved:
* when Harry thinks that Ron and Hermione have fallen asleep holding hands
* when he says "WOW" seeing her at the wedding, dressed in lilac
* when he prays Bellatrix to be tortured instead of Hermione
* when he keeps screaming her name hearing Hermione screaming tortured by Bellatrix
* when Ron has to destroy the Horcrux, but the locket makes him see "things": Harry & Hermione together, actually kissing. The real Harry screams at thim, pushing him to DESTROY THE HORCRUX. And he does. Then he falls, shaking. Harry says that he loves Hermione as a sister, and that Hermione loves him as a brother. IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN LIKE THAT. He keep telling him that since he left them, she has been crying during the night .. because she missed him so much.
* .. the kiss. PAGE 502 OWNS MY HEART. "That's now or never"! GO HERMIONE! xD

When Ron leaves them, I was INCREDIBLY WORRIED.
I swear I was able to hear all the Ron-haters saying "HE'S A COWARD, HE LEFT HIS BEST FRIENDS" .. and then.
Chapter 19; he SAVES Harry's life. He kept following them and he wasn't able to see them because of the protective spells. Ron ;_____________________________________;
He finally wins at the end. He wins Hermione's heart and the FULL RESPECT of all the HP readers ù___ù
I loved this passage:

(Ron:) "... he [Dumbledore] must've known I'd run out on you."
"No," Harry corrected him. "He must've known you'd always want to come back."
(Chapter 20, I think)


* HARRY & HERMIONE
Well .. I've always LOVED Ron & Hermione together, but this doesn't mean I don't like Harry and Hermione's relathionship too.
Of course, IT'S ANOTHER KIND OF RELATIONSHIP, but it's strong and absolutely perfect.
They're like brother and sister, they need each other, Hermione is always ready to help him, she's already *mature* in this sense, she's not like Ron who still needs to figure out some things (things that he will understand in this book of course, he's the one who GROWNS UP in this final chapter), she's always there.
The scene at the graveyard in Godric's Hollow.
When Hermione takes his hand in front of his parents' tomb, and then they leave together: Harry's arm on her shoulders, her arm around Harry's waist.
I love their relationship, BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT LOVE.
And I can't understand why other people CAN'T understand that they're so beautiful like this, and not as lovers.
They're sweet.


* CHARACTERS I LEARN TO LOVE
* Dudley. Dudley made me cry, could you believe it? He let all the "I'm big and strong, and you're just sh*t" impression fall. He finally thanks Harry because he saved his life in the fifth book, he finally says that he doesn't think that Harry's a waste of space, they shake hands. ;______________________________; I want to adopt Dudley.
* Kreacher. Kreacher made me cry too. KREACHER. That's the power of JK. Rowling, I suppose! Harry learns to treat him right, to treat him as something with actual feelings, and Kreacher knows how to thank him. He stands out for him until the end, he's the boss of the Elves' rebellion at the end of the book, during the battle that takes place at Hogwarts.
* Snape. But I've already said it :P
* Neville. Well, I've always loved Neville as a character, but in this one he's just AMAZING. He's so so so so brave. He's the HEAD of the students' rebellion at Hogwarts, he keeps the Dumbledore's Army alive, he stands out against the Carrows and Snape (the Death Eaters who control Hogwarts), he's not afraid of dying, or going to Azkaban. He does what needs to be done. He's just .. I don't know, he's lovely ;__;
* Aberforth. Because he's sweet.
* Percy. I forgot to mention him! He's actually funny at the end. Fred dies in his own arms.


* DUMBLEDORE
Learning things about his past felt strange, I have to admit it.
Because I was not used to think about him has a normal person, with normal feelings and a "normal" past. And of course I was wrong!
He obviously has had a past, and not an happy one!
He has made lots of mistakes as any other normal person, but he has also learned what's really important in life, and he managed to fix everything .. but there's one thing he couldn't manage to do. Having is family back. His father, mother and sister back. That's why he has the ring in the sixth book. He's already so old, but the couldn't resist using the ring with the stone who's supposed to bring dead people back.
I'm happy Harry talks with him at the end. After pages and pages of speculations about his past (and you have to thank that BITCH that Rita Skeeter is), you finally understand what he has really went through during his life.
You have the real Dumbledore back, saying everything to Harry, explaining everything to him.
And you HAVE TO LOVE HIM, simply.


* GENERAL
I love the whole of the plot.
The Horcruxes/Hallows thing. There are actually A LOT of shocking things going on, things you're not expecting at all.
There's so much action in this book, battles and deaths EVERYWHERE. This is not one of the classic HP books: there's no slow beginning, it begins IMMEDIATELY. After .. six chapters you already have two deaths (Hedwig & Moody). JK Rowling was right when she said that this was going to be a BLOOD BATH, because it really is.
I love how the *atmosphere* changes after the sixth book.
Voldemort and his Death Eaters are everywhere. They control the Ministry, they control Hogwarts, they control EVERYTHING. Muggle-Borns are persecuted, there will no longer be Houses at Hogwarts, just the Slytherin one. If you're not Pureblood, you can't attend the school. People are imprisoned, or obliged to escape abroad. You can feel *FEAR* everywhere.
I love how the Order stands out against Voldemort's come back. "Potterwatch", the radio channel led by the Order is just .. AMAZING xD

The fact that Harry was one of the Horcrux, at last.
But just one little part of his soul did not belong to him. That little fragment Voldemort has lost when he first tried to kill him. Harry is the seventh and UNWANTED Horcrux Voldemort has created.
Dumbledore and Snape (through Snape's memories) let him think that he has to die to defeat Voldemort. That his sacrifice is needed to make the war end.
That's why he doesn't react when Voldemort casts the Avada Kedavra curse on him.
He just accepts his destiny. He accepts to die for the ones he loves.
.. and he doesn't actually die for this reason.
Voldemort *kills* just that little part of soul that he gave Harry when he was only one. He destroys one of HIS Horcruxes with his own hands.

At the end, when Voldemort dies (killed by a stupid Expelliarmus. His own curse hits and kills him), and everyone (Ron and Hermione for first) run to him, hug him, and scream his name *_________________________________________________*
I cried so much. You really understand that it's actually over.


* CONCERNING THE EPILOGUE
I've heard so many MEAN things about these last .. five pages of the book.
Yes, Harry and Ginny got married, and yes they had THREE children, and yes they're called James, Lily and Albus Severus, and yes Ron and Hermione got married too, and yes they had TWO children, and yes, they're called Rose and Hugo, and yes Draco's son is called Scorpius .. SO WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I'm tired of all those people who HAVING JUST READ THIS EPILOGUE AND NOT THE WHOLE BOOK are refusing to read Deathly Hallows, people who are saying "this end sucks", "shame on you JK Rowling", "I could have written a better ending" .. STOP! STOP IT NOW!
She has GIVEN us the BEST SERIES we could always read! She has given us the Harry Potter story! She has given us this WONDERFUL story, we GREW UP with Harry, Ron and Hermione.
And now? Just because of those children names you are REFUSING everything?
JUST FOR FOUR PAGES THAT ARE NOT ACTUAL PART OF THE STORY?!

After seven years of PAIN, you dare to say that the ending is TOO SWEET? Almost disgusting and nauseating? OH PLEASE! Shame on those who are saying "I HAVE BROUGHT THE BOOK BACK BECAUSE THE EPILOGUE SUCKS" ... WHAT?!?!?!?!?!!?!?

I HAVE STUCK WITH HARRY UNTIL THE VERY END, AND I THANK JK ROWLING FOR EVERYTHING, AND I'M PROUD OF HAVING READ ALL THE SEVEN BOOKS

Seriously people, forget the ships, forget the pairings, AND READ THIS BOOK!





You have questions feel free to ask! I can't do anything but talking about this book at the moment.

All day I have been wanting to shout to the roof tops "SEVERUS SNAPE I ALWAYS BELIEVED IN YOUUU!!!!!" So he hated Harry, can you blame him? Ahh. He wasn't a monster, just a man in love.

I wasn't happy with the epilogue, mostly because I wanted to know more about everyone! Where is Luna, waht is she up to now? Did she and Dean get together? Did George carry on the WWW without Fred? Are the ret of the Weasley's okay? I just wanted to know little things I think. I am happy with the ending for them, and "Albus Severus" made me cry, "bravest man I've ever known". AHHHH. I was sobbing.

You know .. we don't see if Harry doesn't see!
But I think that everyone's happy :)

I'm with you on the Epilogue. Okay, so it was kind of fanfic-y and the names were weird, but we all *needed* that. In my opinion, the fans would be complaining a lot worse if JKR had just left it after the last chapter.

Jul. 22nd, 2007 04:35 pm (UTC)
Agreed!

And I think it's obvious that in this way she has prevent herself and any other person we can think of from writing another book about Harry Potter.

That's the end. STOP.

The only thing I hated about the book was the epilogue, but it did not ruin the rest of the series for me. In a way writing it seems pointless, but the rest of the book is so incredible! Loved it!

The Deaths: I can't believe how many people died! Hedwig and Dobby hit me the most, and like you said, Fred?! *weeps*

Snape: I never really thought he was evil, cause of that sight dumbledoreisnotdead.com which had theories about the two of them having plans, and although they weren't right, they still were. Like one of the things someone pointed out was how when Dumbledore was Avada Kedavraed, he flew back, and none of the others did; it was because he already had a deathly curse on him. And when Snape died, with the "Look...at...me..." to see Lily's eyes one last time ;;________________________;;

R/Hr: YESYESYESYES finally! And I love Viktor, so I'm glad he showed up.

After seeing Snape's memory, I really thought Harry had to die. I was sobbing into my book, and was about to throw it against the wall. But he didn't, so it's all good, and we don't have to send JKR a bomb in her mail!

I loved the epilogue; people need to just STFU and stop hating. True fans read through the book, and not just the end and decide whether they like it or not.
herm_weasley
Jul. 22nd, 2007 06:24 pm (UTC)
the Deaths: I agree about Hedwig and Dobby ;__;

Snape: I've never read theories about them, but I was so convinced about Snape's loyalty to Dumbledore, for the really simple fact that when Snape was pointing the wand to him, "Severus .. please" says Dumbledore, and then Harry thinks that Dumbledore is actually praying Snape. Dumbledore praying not to be killed? Are you kidding? Dumbledore would have NEVER prayed to have is life saved! That's why I've always thought that Dumbledore was asking him to be killed, not to be saved.

And I can't agree more about the whole epilogue thing.

Great review! I have really enjoyed reading what other people thought about the book. I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the epilogue, it just seemed to wrap everything up too neatly with a pretty bow. It wasn't enough to make me hate the book, though, I think this was the best ever! SNAPE WAS GOOD!!!! I feel vindicated, I always did believe in him.

That's a amazing review, thanks for posting your thoughts. :)

There were almost too many deaths, for my taste. Hedwig's death was senseless ... so was Snape's. She only dedicated his death a bloody page. :( I hoped she wouldn't kill him of (or if, then properly) in order to make _real_ peace with Harry, not just with the eyes of Lily.

I'm so sad that she killed off my favourite characters. :( (speaking of Snape, Lupin, Tonks, Dobby, Fred, ...)
Oh yes, there was a war, but ... mah. :( It makes me sick.
herm_weasley
Jul. 22nd, 2007 10:39 pm (UTC)
You're really welcome!

I thought that Snape would have made it! But no .. he dies.
Just one page, it's true, but there's a whole chapter dedicated to his memories.

Ahahaha Sereee! Non posso ancora crederci che il figlio di Ron e Hermione si chiama Hugo!
Ed ero convinta che Harry ne avrebbe chiamato uno Sirius.
Ma cmq.
E' STUPENDO, e non c'è altro da dire. Praticamente ho cominciato a piangere da quando Harry si avvia verso la presunta morte. Lì, ero in coma.

E stavo solo per morire per Fred ;_;

"He dies saying "Look ... at ... me" .. to Harry of course.
Why? Because he has always been in love with Lily, Harry's mother.
And Harry has the same eyes of her and Snape .. wanted to see her eyes in his last moment"

I have always loved Snape.. and his death made me Bawl.. but.. I seriously did not think about that until you just mentioned it and now I am crying for him again... Omg Snape... I love him so much.

but actually I was staring at the last page of that chapter in which he dies.

once I understood it I started crying like an idiot.

Uh, just in reply to your epilogue rant:
My problem with the epi. was not the sweetness or the names. (And I read the book, by the way) It was the fact that other characters that I would like to have heard about were left out. I mean, Percy? Come on. Of the Weasely family members, how is he more important than, say, George or Mrs. Weasley? I (like many others I'm sure) could see it rewritten in a couple of ways. Harry and the old crowd (including Professors Hagrid and Longbottom) get together at the local pub and discuss the past 20 years. And I'm sure that I'm not the only one who would have liked to have seen the Potter/Weasley weddings.

Aug. 1st, 2007 01:04 am (UTC)
Oh sure, I was talking about those people who are complaining about the couples. You know, disappointed shippers who, reading just the epilogue, are saying that the whole book sucks. And I think that's pretty stupid, I mean.. couples and pairings are not the main part of the HP series!

But I didn't think about all the other characters while reading the epilogue. I'm waiting for the Encyclopedia, though. I think that Jo will tell us exacatly what the others are doing :)

Jul. 31st, 2007 04:47 pm (UTC)
In response to the rest
Dobby made me a little sad (Hedwig too) but it was strange because I had always found him HIGHLY ANNOYING.
Fred was shocking. Who are the twins without each other? George is missing an ear and his brother. How does one recover from that?
Mad-eye died nobley. I was proud. Sad, but it was sort of meant to be.

I think this book was ALL ABOUT redeeming the unlikely character. Redeem Dudley (Hello, Dudley??? What the heck?), KREACHER, Dobby, Percy. When people talk about feeling oh so sad about Dumbledore's past and not forgiving him (etc.), I want to shake them. If DUDLEY and KREACHER can change their ways, than Dumbledore a. has more than a fighting chance and b. HAS CERTAINLY PROVEN HIMSELF for the next, oh, 50-70 years of his life. A squalid young past does not change what I've felt about Dumbledore. He's been one of my favorite characters all along.

It also makes sense why he was so forgiving. I mean, he was the first to trust Severus and Hagrid. (And I'm sure, a host of others.) It reminds me of the Bible verse "He who has been forgiven much loves much." Dumbledore knew what it was to live with a mistake and to change and so he could extend a gracious hand to others.

Snape... eh. I wish there had been a few more clues as to his not-quite-so-badness. I think, honestly, the movies showed me more of Snape's (good) character than the books. I also wish he had died with a bit more... drama? Nobility? I'm not sure what I mean. Snakebite--here, Harry, take my brain... that was a little anticlimactic considering the "is snape bad or isn't he" build up.

Ron and Hermione ARE so meant to be. (I don't know about Harry and Ginny.)

I was also worried when Ron walked out. But he ROCKED MY WORLD when he came back to save the day. Honestly, a fight had been brewing for a long time. I think the trio needed a break. Go Rowling with the honesty. But I'm exceedingly glad he came back. (Yet another redeemable character.)

The beginning was not slow. You were right. But the middle was S L OOOOOOOOOO W. The camping for endless months was a slow read. (Dispite discoveries, etc.) Believable, but not exciting.

Voldemort killed one of his own Hoarcruxes... that comment gave me something to think about and gives me pause still. I shall ruminate on that for awhile.
herm_weasley
Aug. 1st, 2007 01:01 am (UTC)
Re: In response to the rest
I totally agree about all the redeeming thing you mentioned. That's incredibly right. Dudley particularly shocked me.

And I agree about Dumbledore too. Honestly, I didn't understand why Harry starts believing all those things they write about Albus. Even if his past is anything but "honest", he still is a GREAT GREAT man and wizard. I've always loved him too in the books, no matter what Rita or any other character whould have said about him.

Also, Harry and Ginny are not one of my favorite couples, even if I think it's quite obvious that the whole romance part is given to Ron & Hermione. I mean .. they're THE couple.

Completely agree about Ron. He's probably my favorite character in this book.

(Ron:) "... he [Dumbledore] must've known I'd run out on you."
"No," Harry corrected him. "He must've known you'd always want to come back."


One of my favorite parts of the book! As soon as Ron left I'm like psh he'll be back. I had to suffer through 61 pages to get him to come back but still! I love the way they brought him back in and I love the way Dumbledore knew him more that Harry and Hermione or even Ron himself would have expected.

sorry I'm so random commenting on your post lol i just saw one of your icons http://userpic.livejournal.com/64569892/9968577 and then i saw the DH post and I had to see your thoughts =p

Wow I completely agree with you. Every last word you said. Snape has always been my favourite, since book 1. And his death, painful and upsetting as it was for me, was perfect. When he says 'look at me' I was like bursting into tears.

And I feel the SAME about the epilogue. What more do these people want?! Suffer Harry because that's just how his life should be?!? Finally he has happiness, a family, and people are like 'this sucks.' If you say that, then you're not a true HP fan. JK Rowling was flawless with this book. Absolutely flawless.

And OMG Fred. I loved Fred. =(

And I friended you. I saw one of your graphics posts, and then I looked here, and it seems we have a lot in common. :3

Forgot to add one thing. After I composed myself following Snape's death, when Harry said 'Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. one of them was a Slytherin and he was probably the bravest man i ever knew,' I DIED. Of crying. Again.

About Harry/Hermione. -I love their relationship, BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT LOVE.
And I can't understand why other people CAN'T understand that they're so beautiful like this, and not as lovers.
They're sweet.-
I think it's harder for some people to understand because if you haven't known a relationship like that in your life, you don't think it can happen for real.

About the ending. I loved the book, but the ending left a bitter sweet feeling. I also think it's too sweet. It does not 'suck' or 'mess teh whole book up' like some might have said, but I sort of think Rowling added this part to pleases the people that demanded a happy, romantic ending.
I think the chapter before could have been the end and it would have been as awesome. or she could have just made them part at the end, after all settled down, and Harry would think, or talk about how now the future looked brihter and this new adventure seemed exciting or something.

I realy agree with all that you said. I felt weird too to see Dumbledore as a person and in his flaws, and Snape made me cray as well.
Nice review.
