Thread Name: Harry Pottering
Subject: RE: Harry Pottering
Am I the only person who noticed that Harry Potter is J.K. Rowling's take on the British class system. We have the old wizarding families, who can get away with murder, more or less, and then we have lesser types like Ron and Hermione, or dear old Hagrid. I hope J.K. Rowling didn't turn her latest into a "coming of age" novel. The school librarian used to wish those attrocities on me, and I kept trading them in for Sabatini and Dumas.
