Deathly Hallows, Chapter Sixteen

After the moment in book one where Harry sits in front of the Mirror of Erised, hungrily watching his family surrounding him, this chapter might be the most touching in the entire Harry Potter series. It’s not that different, really; Harry is thinking about and wishing for exactly the same things. But he’s six years older now, and knows so much more about what those things mean – and would have meant – for his life. If there’s any point in his life where I find it difficult to fathom what it’s like in Harry Potter’s shoes, I think this chapter is it. The weight of the wizarding world is on his shoulders, every parental figure he’s ever had is gone, and all he really wants is a shoulder to cry on for a while. What a kid, huh?
