I guess everyone else has linked to this, but for those of you who've missed it, go there now. And then pick up the first book in the series and start reading. The books grow in complexity as Harry grows, but even the first one is rich with metaphor, myth, and wonder. And understated cruelty; Harry is and was an emotionally abused, emotionally neglected child.

No, songdog, this isn't about slash, I promise. It's about what a very, very good story this is. Even if you don't read the books, read the post.

Seriously, if you don't read Harry Potter because you think it's a kids' book or you don't read fantasy or fiction or a thousand other reasons, you're missing out. Everyone should meet Harry. Yes, it's a gross generalisation. Pfft.

Okay, off I go for lunch with my lovely daughter Mary.
That's her in the icon, too. *g* Is she not completely lovely? Her cousin, the equally beautiful kissed_a_drunk (who's a talented aspiring photographer) took the pictures. I am in awe, and wonder how I ended up with such a beautiful kid. All my kids are lovely, actually. Yes, mr_t00by, even you. *loves*
