    I think so, because Harry is a descendent of Ignatius, the brother smart enough to choose the cloak and not the wand or Stone. Most of his descendents generally ended up being Gryffindor. Voldemort's family line was the brother who chose the Resurrection Stone and they generally ended up Slytherin. And the third brother's line died out so no one to pass it on to, and due to the nature of the Elder Wand ended up being passed on to many people.

    Going into pure speculation zone now, but that might also be the reason why Voldemort choose Harry over Neville as the one that the prophecy spoke of. Even though the family names had changed (as proven by the Gaunts) maybe the family relation was something that he sensed on a certain level.

    Btw: LOVED the Malfoy parents in this book:

    Still selfish, but at the end of the day she just didn't give a damn anymore. She just wanted to see if her son was alive (and probably wanted Voldermort gone too at this point), probably thought that Harry was her best bet, so she lied to Voldemort about Harry's *status* so they could get into Hogwarts and she could search for him.

    The point where Hogwarts had virtually gone to hell and Lucius is running around desperately screaming for his wife and child made me bawl. The Malfoys might had been really unpleasant people, but at the end of the day they actually LOVED each other. Contrast that with Bellatrix.

    In the epilogue chapter they talk about Teddy (Lupin & Tonks son), snogging with their cousin Victoire. I wondered if she was George's daughter. I feel she tied up most of the story lines but not Georges.

    I finished the book around 1:00 a.m. last night. I loved it. I cried a couple of times. Can't believe it's over.

    I was afraid to come into this thread before I finished. LOVED it! I will have to reread it again to really enjoy it, as I was nervous the whole time wondering who might not survive. I thought the action moved quickly and the whole thing was suspenseful.

    Sad it's over, though. I feel like we've all been like kids being told a bedtime story that lasted years, and now we've finally heard the end.

    ETA: I'd have liked to hear what happened to the Dursleys.

    I thought it was a thrilling read.

    I'm so glad the core three survived. And I missed Hogwarts so I was glad the ending was set there; it was quite fitting. The only thing that disappointed me was the epilogue. I felt it was too much about the new batch of kids, rather than the old batch. It was nice to know that Hermione and Ron & Ginny and Harry ended up together. But I would have liked to know what they were doing now, career-wise. We know Neville ended up teaching at Hogwarts, but what of Luna? And I'd have liked to have heard about the rest of the Weasleys.

    I agree, CCL.

    I also found, in the epilogue, all the names to be confusing. I would also have liked more of a sense of what was going on in the wizarding world; it was so focused on the three, but I thought it could have used a couple of more of those underground radio shows to tell what was going on elsewhere.

    Normally, I finish the books in about 24 hours, but I've had a houseful of people the last few days and have had to sneak in reading time when I can. I'm only half way through and I am enjoying it thoroughly. Maybe I'm not reading faster because subconciously I don't want it to end.

    That's exactly why it took me a bit longer than normal to read, Katgib! Every second chapter or so I would get up, wander around and try to predict what was going to happen. I wasn't very successful!

    I have another question for anyone who is finished:

    Click to see Spoiler:
    What was with the "naked, child like figure" flapping and mewling near Harry and Dumbledore in the "dream" chapter? It bothered Harry quite a bit at the beginning, then he never noticed it any more. What was THAT supposed to represent?
    Don't let the small things sweat
