The Deathly Hallows Lectures by John Granger
Non-fiction; Harry Potter
Summary: An examination of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to look at its multiple layers and meanings and argue for the greater significance of these children's books.
Thoughts: I had read some other Granger books and while there were some boring sections, I thought it would be worth it to read some more. I was wrong-I was so bored and I struggled to finish it (I'm not sure why I didn't just give up). I liked the parts where he actually talks about Harry but not the long discussions about alchemical literature and I did not enjoy the exhortations to buy his other books.
The part I liked the most was the FAQ at the end. It was shorter and focused more on the books instead of the possible influences.
Overall: Boring; not recommended.
Cover: Combines Harry with lecturing in a cute way.
