 I greatly enjoyed the Harry Potter books, as did my kids. I'm also a multi-decade fan of both SF and fantasy, and I have certain views on what fantasy should and shouldn't do. Hence I chime in when that general topic arises.

I am a bit amazed - this woman has gotten thousands of kids off the games and into reading for the first time, including incidentally my own stepson, and it has opened up topics no one talked about. Wildly popular books written at first by a desperate mom to get by.
