I also thought the deaths of Lupin and Tonks were not well developed. Nor was the death of Hedwig, or at least Harry's response to it! And yes, Ginny was a disappointment as a character...so much potential, but never really developed.

I think Rowling is quite hit-and-miss as a writer. The books are good entertaimnment, but have some pretty significant flaws. I'd partially agree with the Guardian writer who said that they are one-dimensional - in some places, and with regard to certain characters, they definitely are. But on balance, the story has kept me gripped and there were enough satisfying bits to have made the journey worthwhile.
