Alan Jacobs on HP and the Deathly Hallows

Yes, yes. Alan Jacobs has weighed in on the final Harry Potter book over at Books and Culture. It's one of the most cogent and beautiful reviews/analyses I've seen yet. Worth waiting for. If you've read and loved Deathly Hallows, or perhaps especially if you've read it and not loved it, please go read this review.

I'm itching to get back to some more HP reflections. Not sure when it will happen, but essays like this inspire my thoughts!

Isn't it wonderful? I love his stuff. He really "gets" Harry, not just the books themselves, but their timelessness and meaning for our culture.

And to think he's even better when he writes about Lewis.
