Yes, I've wanted to do this. And this is one of the reasons that I 
enjoyed the new Harry Potter book as much as I did. It's the way she 
deepens the lives of the central characters (Harry, Sirius, Snape 
especially) and makes me love smaller characters that I didn't think 
I'd ever care for (Neville is the prime example of this, although it 
happens to Trelawney too!). I can't wait to find the time to read it
