Sigh, okay so this book is amzing, it's incredible funny buy sooo tragic. The first time I read it (so many years ago, I finished it in denial, I just couldn't believe that Snape would.... well you know... do what he did.
I loved the fact that we get to learn more about Voldemort and his past and the steps he is willing to take to make himself immortal.
We also see the returning of an old character who brings us a surprise and a tragic ending once more.
