    I Also Recommend:

    Long-winded, but interesting for adults.

    I have read John Granger for years since there are so few Christian Potter analysts. As is typical with Granger's self-published books (he owns Zossima Press), he tends to spend just a few weeks assembling his long, disjointed lectures into an "instant book" (as he informed us in an interview last fall). This inevitably causes a certain amount of repetitiveness, odd pleas for money/book-sales, grammar errors, overlong passages, and reader fatigue. Page 189 of my copy even has some peer editors suggestions accidentally left behind ("You used this line above elsewhere..." "...made no sense as used so I suggested cutting it.")

    Despite its length, I actually don't feel that this book is as complete or entertaining as the adventurous first installment of Nancy Solon Villaluz' new Harry Potter/J.K. Rowling study trilogy, "Does Harry Potter Tickle Sleeping Dragons?" (Which I thoroughly enjoyed and believe will appeal to a much broader audience than Granger's book's style.) However, that is not to say that there isn't any information that makes one's effort in this book worthwhile.

    I suggest buying both Granger and Villaluz' books if you're the PHD type. If you're not the PHD type, then you might not enjoy being lectured by The Deathly Hallows Lectures.
