I've always counted this book as one of my least favorites of the series (if not my least favorite), so I was surprised to find that I really, really enjoyed rereading it this time! There's not an awful lot going on for most of the book...the memories and backstory of Voldemort are obviously the most important thing here. Harry's obsession with Draco gets a little old, and there's the whole Lavender and Won-Won catastrophe. But I really love the memory sections, and the Felix Felicis scenes are among my favorites in the series. And the end is done really well, from the cave to the very end, which always makes me cry.
