• In Response to: Harry Potter is too violent (Matthew Hamilton)

Impressive review. I'm assuming this is an indirect response to mine. You mentioned that most who reject the books haven't read them, not at all my case. I read Sorcerers Stone and saw the movie twice (I fell asleep the first time so I rented it again.) I try my best to hold to the rule of never judging something until you've tried it, a rule I have only broken with Spy Kids (frightful shiver). Having seen the story up close actually solidified my opinion of them. I still do not feel that any really genuine or original morality issues are portrayed in those books, that the story really only appeals to those alternate reality escapes so many in todays world seem to flock to (including myself, although I desire to be rid of them), and that the only pluses it has is clever humor, good character development, and the draw to influence people, especially kids, to read more.

Oh, just to let everyone know, after this post I will be changing my screen name to ashitaka. Thank you.
