What Makes Harry Potter So Popular?
This is an interesting article DreamOn showed me about the reason for the popularity of Harry Potter. Though I have only seen two of the movies and never read any Harry Potter and haven't really dived into fantasy writing, I found this interesting for all writers. It raised the idea of the books being a metaphor for self-discovery and that some how the stories of Harry Potter connect with all the readers. The openness of fantasy writing to explore ideas with no real restrictions on physical context interests me.
