    I’ll admit it. I’m not a fan of the Harry Potter series. Having read it long ago, I thought it overblown and seriously lacking in imagination. Witches, wizards, giants, werewolves, vampires, unicorns, dragons, invisibility cloaks, flying broomsticks…none of these things were NEW. I’ve read about all of them elsewhere and often in greater depth. But this book reminds me why J.K. Rowling’s magical novels resonate with so many of her readers. Like Buffy the Vampire Slayer when the series was truly great, it was never just about the magic or the monsters. It was about people, their nature, characters and the way they react when confronted with problems and life choices. Even written as a play, that’s what comes through in this startling script. Harry’s struggling with adulthood, fatherhood and the threat of Voldemort coming back. As always Ms. Rowling surprises, taking the story in unexpected directions. We meet old characters and new, dicey situations, read about risky behavior and monumentally stupid decisions. Hey, what’s life without idiotic choices and awful consequences? After this, I think I’ll re-read the original series. You can’t go home again. But maybe you can re-assess some of your old opinions.
