Personally I like Deathly Hallows. It's action-packed and very exciting to read, but when I read it again I realised there are parts of the book that had some purpose which I failed to grasp/understand. That's either due to the fact that 1) I'm too dumb to understand it (very possible, by the way) or 2) JKR rushed it too much. I don't particularly see how does the background of Dumbledore contribute to the series. It seems like a random piece of information. Or maybe it's useful to understand Dumbledore better or something... Somehow it doesn't fit with the pace of the rest of the book.

Oh sorry. This thread is not for discussing #7. My least favourite is... #5 I think. I don't know why, but I really didn't like that one as much. Or #2. Again, for reasons I've forgotten. I haven't read the books for quite long.
I love Prisoner of Azkaban though. Actually I'm quite obsessed with finding out more information about Sirius and James, so I like that one :D
This fight is personal.

I mean, the 6th was sorta useless, pretty depressing, and basicaly pretty boring as well. And the 7th, excuse me for saying so, was just a waste of paper.
Pretty much that. xD For me, they really went downhill after the third. Four was fine, but it really, really could have used some editing; I for one was kinda bored of the petty schoolboy drama by the end of it and felt it really could have been boiled down more to the essentials. Five was... okay, but man, Harry was always sort of a charming little 'Mary-Sue'... the whole prophecy angle? Way overboard. But they both kind of kept that whole "magic school!" charm. They introduced interesting characters, like the first three. They introduced new ideas, like the first three. That died with #6.

Voted for #7, 'cause it involved about four HUNDRED pages of "Harry Potter Goes Camping," which is pretty much a whole -darn- tree's worth of content-free pages per book. Not to mention the horrifically bad fanfic of an Epilogue. And the complete lack of any character development whatsoever. Everyone acted incredibly, incredibly predictable. It was a pretty disappointing ending for a series that started off with- in my opinion- a lot of potential.
