And again from the Sydney
Dec 10, 2001
And again from the Sydney Morning Herald, the opinion that it is “time to get a grip and give Harry the respect he deserves:”
No matter what the critics say, the Harry Potter books – and perhaps even the film – are destined to become classics…
The best thing about the Potter phenomenon is J.K. Rowling’s brain, her cleverness and her brilliant sense of humour. The stories, like Tolkien’s, work on two levels, one for children, and one for adults. They’re littered with myths, legend, history and literature, as well as dozens of clever wordplays.
