This is witchcraft. The witch delights in manipulation -this out of her contempt for light, beauty, and men. At heart, the witch is driven by pure unbridled hatred of the pure, envy, baser desires, and covetousness. I notice the author of this piece and of the books are both female, yet the author asserts the writings to be the interest of adolescent boys. Can you see how conceited, disingenuous, and disrespectful of man she is? The ones I encounter overly infatuated with these Potter books and story lines are uniformly women and girls.
Where's the danger you might ask? The danger lies in projections and perceptions. The author of the books is projecting when at best she can only perceive. Her main character is a boy and she purports to write from within outwards, something she can not truly do, a complete lie. To deal with every problem the boy (really a girl -projection people) uses convoluted logic and a magical spell to fix everything. This is a very bad foundation for young girls to adhere for it leads to delusion. Skim closer and you will see the soullessness of this women. You might again ask yourself what is it she desires so much that she has to broach it as a man would as though she's a man?

You're right. There's no such thing as universal concerns or interests, or the general "human condition." Only an author of the same ethnic group, gender, race, religion, economic class, or handicap-status as the subject can write insightful fiction.

I try to stay away from controversies here, but your post is one of the most uninformed I've ever seen.
The Harry Potter books are NOT based in reality. You may be different than me and the people I know, but who wouldn't want a wand to clean up all the Thanksgiving dishes? Who wouldn't want a wand to peel the potatoes?
The books are something called FICTION, as in not real. Others have posted comparisons to LOTR and C.S. Lewis. Why don't we pick on Mark Twain, too? It was obviously fiction at the time that Tom would stand up for Jim.
I'm all for family values and feel that I help in the fight against the left. But really. Like Freud said, sometimes a cigar is JUST a cigar.
