Phil on Harry Potter

Phil, now actually existing over at The Gaping Silence (the best contradiction in terms blog name I've read in a long while), has written a very readable analysis of Harry Potter, specifically looking at Book One and most especially the 'moral universe' of the novel.

As the (hopefully) first of a full series of posts on the Potter books, it presents a critical eye but as Phil has clearly read and to a certain extent enjoyed the books, he is at least in a position of judgement which hasn't rested on an automatic emotive response (brilliant/shite).

Well worth digesting.

I've never got into HP. Should persist?
