I read this before I had a goodreads account.

Many say they cried when they read this one. I did not. I was numbed by how it ended and merely passed the book onto my son who was similarly . . .

Well, not really surprised. Truth is, I knew the ending was coming. I just didn't know when. I actually had expected the ending in book 5 but that is one of the things I like about these books. When I first read them, even if I thought I knew what would happen, I was always surprised by what actually ended up happening. Rowling was able to fulfill my expectations by not meeting them in a way that I could easily anticipate. Wonderful!

Edit 2012

I recently reread this book and posted a review here:

It held up even upon rereading, making me tear up just as it had done before. That says it all!
