I am not into fantasy in general, but my kids and I love the HP series. What I love about them is that she captures what it is like to be an 11 year old boy at the beginning, and by the end, what it is like to have to shed childhood and step into an adult roll. I love that the books don't talk down to kids in any way. I love that the characters are so multi-dimensional, with a few exceptions. And I love that Molly Weasley sticks it to Bellatrix.

Probably my two fave scenes in 7.2 is when McGonagall sets up the protection for Hogwarts and just takes charge, and when Molly kicks Bellatrix's ass. Oh, and when Neville kicks butt too.

I haven't yet seen the movie, but those are some of my favorite scenes from the book.

I'm curious. who is your favorite non-main character? I think mine has to be Luna Lovegood. I loved her in the book, but she's even better in the movies. They picked the perfect actress for the role and she played it so very very well. Probably my 2nd fave is Fred/George.

Molly. I am more like Molly than I usually care to admit. I also love McGonagal. And Lily Evans Potter. Oh, and Remus, poor fellow.

I can see you being like Molly. I like her. she's a very strong, brave woman, without being overbearing and power-hungry. And I bet she gives great hugs.

Lupin is one of dh's faves. He's on my list, just not at the very top.
