It is going at its usual pace with Harry reaching Hogwartz for his 6th year…and all sorts of fight against He –Who- Should-Not-Be-Named.:)
But what surprised me most is the fear factor (of He –Who- Should-Not-Be-Named aka Lord Voldmort & Associates) that Rowling has generated in wizard community
It just seems very similar to the fear of terrorism that is prevailing in today’s world.
Though Rowling is British and Britain felt the REAL heat only after 7/7 and I assume that the chapters were written well ahead of that…I believe Americans felt quite like this after 9/11 or we Indians are feeling since last 10-15 years and are now get used to it.
Especially the incidents like Wizards being to conscious about their security, or empty markets and shops depicted in the book.
Will try to write more on it as I proceed.
