Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 65 Days

There are now only 65 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

They did not discuss Ron at all over the next few days. Harry was determined never to mention his name again, and Hermione seemed to know that it was no use forcing the issue, although sometimes at night when she thought he was sleeping, he would hear her crying.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "Godric's Hollow"

I thought JK Rowling really did a great job with this part of the book, where she said Ron was the last of the trio to really grow up. He has to leave, and feel the weight of the regret, and then face his fears in the locket to become a man. I though it went well with the second half of the book when Harry matures after Dobby’s death when he finally mastered his impulsiveness.

Loved this part! Things were at such a down side for Harry, he lost Kreacher, had a fight with Lupin, couldn’t find the sword, and now the thing we trusted most in, the friendship of Harry, Ron and Hermione was broken. Never did i ever imagine that they would reach such a low point and to recover from it was nearly unimaginable. Well done JK for such an emotional rollercoaster

Oh, I was SO angry at Ron! How could he leave Harry and Hermione like that?!
But I also like it how Harry & Hermione’s relationship changes during the time Ron’s gone. They would fall in love if Ron hadn’t come back (JK Rowling said that). It was so logical because they both lost the people they truly loved and they wanted to fill the empty places in their hearts…
I’m not a Harry/Hermione shipper, but that’s just the truth,
Glad Ron came back though!

I dont like this part but I dont hate it cuz if Ron hadnt left who would have saved Harry, so it all fits together and I think its makes their friendship stronger some what and shows how good their friendship already is. But I also love how angry Hermione is at Ron I think it shows how much she loves him!!! :)

I hated it when Ron and Harry fought. It wasn’t right, in times like these Harry needed his friends. But it wasn’t Ron’s fault either, it was Tom Riddle’s Horcrux!
Poor Hermione, she had always liked Ron. When they finally get together and Ron realises he has strong feelings for Hermione; he leaves her.

just, horrible. after everything hermione does, her greatest sacrifice is how she shouldered the burden with no complaint. she truly was, emotionally, the backbone of the trio. a lot of people say they’ll do you a solid and then find a way to let you know how horrible it is for them, but this passage articulates so beautifully not only her quiet sufferings, but harry’s understanding of them.
