Re: Harry Potter Thread
Well I'm not claiming Harry Potter is deep or intellectual!
It's not a time waster, though. It's a great story, and I'd recommend it to any child as their first 'proper' novel. I think it's a great way to start off the reading cycle BUT that doesn't mean other age groups shouldn't be allowed to read it.
There's a large scope to find yourself 'lost' in this world with all the amazing characters. It's no 'Game of Thrones' in the characters department, but it shouldn't be underestimated. Then there are the great themes, the morals it teaches to people. There's a lot in there that one can certainly appreciate.
Obviously it's not for you.
