Harry Potter Spoiler Alert
Do not read any further down if you don't want to know who dies in the final book
OK here we go
In the first chapter, Lord Voldemort kills off Charity Burbage
Harry's owl Hedwig dies, Mad-Eye-Moody dies
Dobby the house elf dies
Fred Weasley dies
Lord Voldemort kills Severis Snape
Lord Voldemort kills Potter who is resurrected from the dead and finishes off the Dark Lord. Tonks and Lupin die in the same battle.
In the epilogue we read that 19 years later Harry and Ginny have three children
Hope the spelling of these names is right.

I avoided this thread as I was still reading...Well, last night at 1:30 am, I finally finished the 7th book.
(I am a little behind the rest of the world, as I was getting the whole 7 books together as a set and wanted to read them together.)
Although the finale was a bitter-sweet one, with so many loved characters dying, and such an emotional turmoil, I absolutely loved every paragraph. In fact, I have to say, that Harry Potter series is by far one of the best written pieces I have read in my life. It is right up there, on the top shelf, with my beloved Jane Eyre, Gone with the Wind, Arthur Conan Doyle and other all-time classics I love and cherish and re-read every so often. I think that Ms. Rowling deserves every penny and every word of praise she receives and I feel enriched having read her work.
I think the most emotional part of the book for me was when Harry was walking toward his death, of his own free will, knowing what he knew. And when his parents and Sirius and Lupin showed up - that was just heartwrenching.
I also have to say that I feel sorry for people who don't read. For me, its an inseprarable part of me. I only hope that my future children are as passionate about reading as I am.
