It would have had more impact if we didn't know in advance that a significant character was going to die.

If it had had any more impact than it did my poor kid would be catatonic by now. She cried off and on for hours :-(

She is 15 for those who are skipping the spoilers and haven't read what I posted.

She's okay now but she was so in the HP zone and when "it" happened she wasn't prepared, even though she knew there would be a death. For those of you who have kids reading the book please be prepared to console them.
