Read in February, 2011

I enjoyed this book for many things it revealed to me about the influences on J.K. Rowling. The extended sequence demonstrating that she used alchemy as an underlying theme was less entertaining and persuasive than the rest, and I skipped some. I will read more of Granger's Potter analyses at some point though.
