Som jag skrev i ett tidigare inlägg är det nog delarna om Harrys föräldrar som jag tycker är de sorgligaste. Till exempel när Harry, i sista boken, tänker på allt som kunde ha varit:
It was in Godric’s Hollow that, but for Voldemort, he would have grown up and spent every school holiday. He could have invited friends to his house…. He might even have had brothers and sisters…. It would have been his mother who had made his seventeenth birthday cake. The life he had lost had hardly ever seemed so real to him as at this moment, when he knew he was about to see the place where it had been taken from him.
Förresten är även de fem sista kapitlena i sista Harry Potter-boken väldigt sorgliga, det skulle vara väldigt svårt att välja ett enda tillfälle.
