Subject:        Harry Potter into the breach, dear friends

The astringent NYTimes critic Michiko Kakutani gets positively giddy in
her review of the latest Harry Potter (...and the Half-Blood Prince),
and in passing observes:  "Harry still has his wry sense of humor and a
plucky boyish heart, but as in the last volume..., he is more Henry V
than Prince Hal, more King Arthur than the young Wart. He has emerged,
at school and on the Quidditch field, as an unquestioned leader: someone
who must learn to make unpopular decisions and control his impetuous
temper, someone who must keep certain secrets from his schoolmates and
teachers."  http://www.nytimes.com/2005/07/16/books/16choc.html

Cheers,
Al Magary
