    she only spoke around Harry

    I was not disappointed in the book but definately not satisfied!

    What is the veil? No explaination of that room or what Harry's parents did for a living.

    There were a lot of questions I wanted answers to that didn't come so I hope she does the extra book for charity explaining some of those answers.

    I always just assumed the veil was death, and that death was one of the mysteries being investigated in the Department of Mysteries.

    I.e. A series about the children.

    Interesting possibility, Stargazer. I didn't think of that. The impression I got was that it was meant to show how normal they all were now. Happy families and all that. Someone told me that JK Rowling had written the epilogue some time ago, which also makes me think she wanted to show how Harry got to have a happy life in the end. But maybe she's arranged it so she can right future adventures based on the children's lives, I don't know.
    Speaking of JK Rowling, she said that there would be two major deaths. I'm thinking Snape was one but who was the other? I guess Voldemort but I always thought the major deaths would refer to the good guys.
    Also, I remember reading that someone she thought would live ended up dying and someone she thought would die ended up living. I'm guessing Hagrid was the one who ended up living. He seemed like he was going to meet his maker when he was carried off by the spiders. But then it turned out to be apropos for him to be the one carrying Harry into the castle grounds. None of the Death Eaters could do it as they would have noticed he was still breathing (Hagrid, bless him, was too upset to notice anything). Any guesses on who was supposed to live but ended up dying? Maybe Snape?
    Also, regarding the sword of Gryffindor. How did it end up in Neville's hands? Last I remember it was being carried off by the goblin. I probably missed something somewhere.

    CCL,

    I thought the two deaths were Fred and Lupin. Also, I thought the Sorting Hat gave Neville the sword because he needed it and was a Gryffindor -- sort of like when Harry wound up with that sword in an earlier book. (Chamber of Secrets? can't remember).

    Yes, that is how it happened.

    Lucy, MomLady - you're right, of course. Don't know how I missed that. Thanks for the explanation.

    She didn't speak in front of Hermione...only nodded and gestured.

    How did the sorting hat end up in the epilogue? I thought it burned up on Neville's head.
    Count your blessings!

    I don't think the sorting hat can be destroyed. It's been around for centuries and is always describe as quite decrepit. And yet it remains...
