The Wrath Posted September 15, 2006 Report Share Posted September 15, 2006 (edited) I read the first 5 books in the 2 weeks before I left Ohio, and have spent the time since reading the 6th. Overall, I'd rank them as follows (favorite being first): Order of the Phoenix, Goblet of Fire, Half-Blood Prince, Prisoner of Azkaban, Chamber of Secrets, Sorcerer's Stone. I read a little of the thread on Book 6, and would like to point out that Rowling has specifically stated that Dumbledore is "not going to pull a Gandalf," meaning that he is dead. I do think, however, that it is likely that his painting will figure into the plot somehow. Now, about Snape...odd though it seems, I always liked Snape. The reason is that I took him to be the misunderstood good guy who would wind up being a hero by the end. I still think Snape will wind up being a hero. When he killed Dumbledore, it was because Dumbledore could not have survived the night, and refusing to kill him would only have revealed him as a spy against Voldemort. Then again, it describes the hatred etched on his face as he did it. Who knows...that's one of the things I look forward to most about Book 7. I also don't think Hogwarts will close, and I suspect that Harry will, in fact, return. I think that Malfoy will end up turning to the good side, and that Harry will probably end up saving his life. I have my doubts as to whether or not Harry will actually finish off Voldemort for good. I've seen too much of modern entertainment than to think that the bad guy will actually be completely defeated. He'll kill Voldemort's body, but I think there might be a single Horcrux left that could not be found. Rowling has said that at least 2 characters will die. I hope that Harry is not one of them but, if it is not him, I have a feeling it will be either Ron or Hermione. Anyway...I know all these conversations have already been had and I'm joining in a tad late, but I just wanted to throw my opinions out there in case anyone wanted to comment on them.
