Writer's Block: Birthday Shout-out

Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Which of her seven Harry Potter novels do you think is the most satisfying read?
The first time through, I think Deathly Hollows was the best, as at the end, Harry seems to finally get it and become the hero he needs to be.  Up to that point, he is motivated, but doesn't really follow through, including speaking Voldemort's name when he knows it will alert everyone to where he and his friends are.  But at the final battle, "So it all comes down to this, doesn't it?", Harry is Voldemort's match, not because of power, but because of intelligence.

Upon rereading, though, there is a soft spot in my heart for Chamber Of Secrets, because so many of the details regarding what happens come out there.  In Deathly Hollows, as soon as Ron and Hermione explained they revisited the Chamber Of Secrets, that's when I knew my hunch about Harry and his role in everything was correct.
