Review: Re-Reading Harry PotterUser Review - joyce - Goodreads
I was about to give it 3 stars, not four. The first chapters were quiet boring but towards the end it got better and better- Although I do not agree with the author in several matters, it is still a nice elaboration on the Magic world in Harry Potter. Read full review
Review: Re-Reading Harry PotterUser Review - Goodreads
This book brings up some interesting comments on the social and political implications of the HP novels - and has an interesting chapter on religious critical anaylis (from the author's non-religious perspective.) It is somehwat dated and not as easy to read as the I think the author thinks it is.
