Harry Potter 7: Epilogue poll results

Question: I thought the epilogue in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was:
  • 47%: Okay
  • 14%: Fantastic
  • 14%: Awful
  • 14%: Unnecessary
  • 9 %: Not detailed enough
  • 0%: I haven't read the book
So, this leads me to the conclusion that not a lot of people were thrilled with the epilogue. "Okay" won very definitively. I'm of the rare breed who did like the epilogue (see this post for why), although I do agree with a lot of the points made in the comments section of both this post and this one.

In other poll news: the favorite Harry Potter characters poll keeps taking new turns. I originally asked the question to see how popular Snape was, and to my surprise, he immediately took over the lead.

When I last commented on the in-progress results they stood as follows:
  1. Harry
  2. Snape
  3. Hermione
  4. Lupin
  5. McGonagall and Sirius
Here are the current results as of this writing:
  1. Hermione
  2. Harry
  3. Ginny and Snape
  4. Lupin and Neville
  5. Fred and George
Characters that have gotten no votes so far:
  • Fleur Delacour
  • Petunia Dursley
  • Vernon Dursley
  • Xenophilius Lovegood
  • Lucius Malfoy
  • Narcissa Malfoy
  • Mad Eye Moody
  • Auntie Muriel
  • Peter Pettigrew
  • Horace Slughorn
While I understand most of these, I have to ask, nobody likes Mad Eye Moody? Why not?

I'm curious to see what the final results will be!


  1. I actually really liked Mad-Eye Moody's character in Goblet of Fire -- but I'd feel a little odd saying he's a favorite since...


    ...he wasn't actually Mad-Eye Moody in that book, just an impersonator! I never felt like Mad-Eye got a chance to really shine after that. Just the same: you're right, he's awesome. "Constant vigilance!!!"

  2. Celery Soda- Exactly. You put your finger on why it's difficult to vote for Mad Eye Moody. Although, he does appear as himself in Books 5 and 7... we really see "him" the most in Book 4.
