I'm more than halfway through the final Harry Potter book (no spoilers), and I have to say that J.K. Rowling really goes out of her way not to bog down the narrative with backstory. The downside is that she really trusts you to remember numerous details from the previous books, and I suspect that she assumes her young readers (and probably a few adults as well) have re-read the books numerous times. (I recall, when I was in junior high, reading the Dragonlance Chronicles several times.)

Well, my wife just finished the book, and she's wiping tears away. Hmm...
