    Who's this Harry Potter of whom you speak?

    I am a lot of things, Cadet. But jealous of Harry Potter fans is not one of them.
  7. This is Door No. 4, right?

    Do I need to start another thread pointing out that another thread has been added?

    Jealous that you all aren't part of the cultural and literary phenomenon.

    I haven't been into fantasy novels since I was a junior-high-school dweeb whose pathetic existence revolved around Dungeons and Dragons and Led Zeppelin. Fortunately, in 9th Grade, I discovered punk rock and Kurt Vonnegut. I left the goofy Anglophilic world of spells and sorcerers behind many, many moons ago.

    But, I'm not going to scoff at Harry Potter. Maybe it's not grade-A literature, but it's a BOOK. In a day and age when people are semi-literate at best and people under 20 seem to know little besides video entertainment, Harry Potter is a character in a series of BOOKS. You know, those archaic things with words on paper that people read. They just sit there and READ, for hours at a time!

    So I'm no Harry Potter fanatic, but I'll give the whole Potter phenomenon a thumbs-up. Yeah, it's not what I'm into personally, but dammit, people are READING. That's welcome news in these degraded times.

    Well said. Pretty much ditto for me.

    I've never been into sci-fi/fantasy stuff. LOTR bored me, never got into the Matrix. But these books are so well written, and indeed such a cultural phenomenon, that I recommend them to anyone.
