A journalist recently asked me what the Potter phenomenon means to Indian authors writing for children, whether it helps to decide how or what to write. The thing is, Harry Potter had long ago degenerated into a massive marketing drama that overshadowed the books’ merits, making it very difficult to judge the books in an unbiased manner.
Even the most dedicated admirers of Rowling—and I am certainly of the club that pegs her as a brilliant narrator—will admit that the series went downhill since Prisoner of Azkaban.
My opinion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows follows. I have chosen to keep the review in the inside pages as there are spoilers and plot discussions. So click in at your own risk and don’t blame me if you get to know anything you’d rather not have!
