Kay Reindl posts most of why I hate the Harry Potter series.
The only bit she leaves out, really, is that magic doesn't seem to cost
anything. Doing a spell is just a matter of learning the trigger, as far as I can tell. You don't actually have to evoke anything from your very being.
Lisa remarks that the Harry Potter books aren't really about magic. They're boarding school adventure books, dressed up in magic. Yep. That's why they're so popular -- they're magic for people who don't have a real sense of magic. Magic for Muggles, if you will.
That's what I hate about Harry Potter. I don't think you should have magic in your books if there isn't a point
Back to my contemporary urban metaphysical series ... which I guearantee you, has a point.
