Feel good mush
I finished reading the latest Harry Potter book (Deathly Hallows) yesterday. This book is poorly plotted and badly imagined. But then, none of the previous ones in the series is any good.
I read the first book when it came out just to know what all the hullabaloo was about. The point system at Hogwarts and the rules of Quidditch were both incredibly innumerate. And since these were both major components of the plot, it was obvious that the author could not create a realistic world. Unlike, say, Tolkien in the Middle Earth books.
It's surprising to me that the Harry Potter books are as successful as they are. They're feel-good mush. But then, I did read every single one of them. So, what's up with that?
