Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Reviewed in the Paper of Record

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling - Books - Review - New York Times: "So, here it is at last: The final confrontation between Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived, the Chosen One, the “symbol of hope” for both the Wizard and Muggle worlds, and Lord Voldemort, He Who Must Not Be Named, the nefarious leader of the Death Eaters and would-be ruler of all. Good versus Evil. Love versus Hate. The Seeker versus the Dark Lord."

The most remarkably ignorant thing I've heard (NPR this morning) about the new HP was actually about fantasy readers, who, according to this clown, in the 1950s, if they'd finished LOTR, would be hard-pressed to find any other fantasy novels...the likes of THE WORM OROBOROUS, JURGEN, THE WELL OF THE UNICORN, TITUS GROAN and its sequel (if not yet its second sequel), one could go on, even before beginning to cite more S&S-oriented work in epic fantasy, much of that published by less "mainline" publishers.

Kind of sad, as well as ignorant.
