    • My Thoughts: 
      • Spoiler alert!! Snape kills Dumbledore – what a fantastic, dramatic, shocking twist. So good. I was never sad about the whole thing, and I had it spoiled for me the day the book was released, but it’s still a great climax which is not the word I want to use but I can’t think of the right one. 
      • The scene with Harry and Dumbledore in the cave…I dunno, that scene never felt very real to me, but it’s kind of terrifying if you can properly believe it. I just have a hard time imagining Dumbledore acting like that, which I suppose is kind of the point (to show how serious and dramatic, etc. the whole situation is) but it just didn’t work for me. Probably because I would be too freaked out if I properly believed it. 😛
