Hahaha! I just read this 5 years later. So much hate was bouncing around this board. I remember why I left. I hope things have settled down since then.

Well, you are back just time for us to rub your head, see into the future and make some new year predictions. Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Respectfully, Ed, what does that have to do with the fact that the book is considered by many to be the greatest American novel ever written?

Some people can't get through "Huckleberry Finn" for the same reason, but that doesn't diminish its importance in American literature.



Granted. I'm just presenting a contrary opinion.

(And I loved "Tom Sawyer" as a kid... but couldn't get through "Huckleberry Finn." Go figure.)

Yeah dude, the Internet has totally changed!
No one brings up Nazis in a discussion of sugar content in turnips and everyone really tries to get to the heart of a controversy through studied disputation and education!
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

A "young adult" novel is considered the best America can do ?

Lowest common denominator in "literature" of our time (window shopping, mouse driven, fingers on the screen...) Smile

Betty or Wilma? The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham?

The moral questions in Huck Finn and the accepted answers in TKAM are still relevant.
