SUTT: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

July 20, 2009

BookIconIf J.K. Rowling had created a customizable TypeTribe focus group targeting teachers and professors, she may have thought twice about the perils that await the schoolchildren in regards to the Triwizard Tournament (a tournament that involves no actual wizards). I love being whisked away into Hogwarts as much as anyone else, and I’m willing to buy into magic and giant spiders and dragons and all that, but it’s quite difficult for me to believe that a fundamental part of the educational system in Rowling’s universe includes a tournament where some children, quite simply, will die. That just doesn’t seem right in any world.

I know that saying anything bad about HP is verging on sacrilege, but there it is. Should’ve used TypeTribe.
