All in all, I was surprised at how well Rowling had tied up alot of things (and people) that I had forgotten about and only wonder whatever happened to that old bat Umbridge.
I thought that, too. There was no mention of her when the Ministry had fallen and she never showed up to the battle. Is it to be presumed that she died along with Scrimegour (sp?) when the Death Eaters took over?
That was a great book. Those that predicted that Harry died were both right... from a certain point of view.
Sad to see Fred die as he was half of the comic duo. I figured that it'd be Charlie, Arthur, or Bill to die in the Weasley family. Glad to see Percy make it back, too. It was also interesting to see that Crabbe and Goyle were no longer Malfoy's flunkies.
