    It didn’t present many new views that I wasn’t already aware of, and it was unfortunately very American centric, but it was a decent read.

    Alright, I didn't completely finish this one. I got to the point where I couldn't take it anymore. There are a lot of great points made in this book, and it IS interesting to see the impact a fictional series can have on the world, outside of what is "expected" of fictional work. But I cannot stand politicians, and a lot of the writing is, of course, politically fueled (which you can tell from the title, and I thought I would be interested enough to stomach it, but I was not).

I'm sure it would be very helpful if you were to write a dissertation on how the Potter series effected the world... otherwise, if you are a leisurely reader like I am, don't bother.

    At first I wanted to rate this book with only one or two stars, due to the many mistakes in the first articles, but the later articles improved in quality so much that I decided to give it 3 stars. Some very interesting articles and different points of view.

    most of the stuff the essayists theorized i already thought of..but it was still interesting to see how harry potter can be discussed in an "adult" way. most of the stuff the essayists theorized i already thought of..but it was still interesting to see how harry potter can be discussed in an "adult" way.
