Thread Name: Harry Pottering
Subject: RE: Harry Pottering

The media are all running stories about how "harrymania" has died out -- they seem intent on playing it down. It's the fans that drive the interest in the books. The media are merely reporting what sells. Right now, Harry really sells.

Finished last night. Fabulous book. Best of the 5 so far. The character development is very good, she has grown leaps and bounds as a descriptive writer (not as good as Tolkien, but who is?), and the plot twists are delicious.

The death of the Important Person (whom I won't divulge) was sad, but hey, death is sad.
