    Summary ✓ Irresistible Rise of Harry Potter 106 Irresistible Rise of Harry PotterI'm honestly surprised that this book has so many negative reviews I first read it about 10 years ago and re read it recently and I still think it's pretty great It reads the HP series not yet finished when he wrote it in relation to New Labor and the politics of Britain circa 2000 It's a scholarly book published and written as a or less popular one the style is accessible and there's virtually no scholarly apparatus footnotes etc but the arguments are most l

    Summary ✓ Irresistible Rise of Harry Potter 106 Irresistible Rise of Harry PotterI admit that I am probably not the target audience for this book I am not in Great Britain nor in Academia Some of the arguments felt outdated and some far fetched But the author made some good points as well and made me think in a different way about the book series I’ve read so many times

    Summary ✓ Irresistible Rise of Harry Potter 106 Irresistible Rise of Harry PotterI did not like this book not because I disagree with the book as Blake had some good perspective at the onset but because his analysis became and absurd as the book went on For instance Blake says that Harry tortures Aunt Marge by blowing her up into a balloon Does he blow her up into a balloon yes but let's not forget that Marge was in the middle of verbally abusing Harry trashing his parents and essentially torturing him psychologically She got what she deserved it's not like Harry was bullying her Blake's book is filled with moments like these where he simply fails to take actions in the context to which they occur in the book for the sake of making his argument plausible

    Summary ✓ Irresistible Rise of Harry Potter 106 Irresistible Rise of Harry PotterThere were a few good points to start with but realised when I was half way through that it was not going to contain the facts I was looking for and that I was not interested in the opinions that were being given
