Burn the Witch! by EyeOfSage

Shouldn’t we, as good Christian, burn Harry for witchcraft?

It’s blasphemous!

They're good, but... by scottb

The Potter books are good children’s books. I’ve read all but the last – I read way too much to buy fiction in hardback – and I’ve enjoyed them. But they’re pretty shallow, compared to Tolkien, or Burroughs or even Heinlein’s juvenile novels.

They’re fun stories, and it’s nice to see some printed words catching kids’ attention, but great literature? Nah.

The Potter books are kids books, but they’re incredibly popular among adults, too. Is there really so little curiosity over what all the fuss is about?
