    "Insightful"

    I enjoyed the arguments put forth by this book. I thought most of it was insightful and on point. My only, vain, complaint is that the narrator said some of the names in a way to which I'm not accustomed.

    "Great content"

    The content in this book was awesome, although sometimes a little repetitive since it is a collection of different authors. If you love the Harry Potter series, and love to learn (particularly if you are a Ravenclaw, like me) you will enjoy this. My favorite chapter was the chapter on feminism.

    The narrator had great voices when it came to reading character dialogue, however her tone tended to be pretty monotone and repetitive with everything else.

    "Fascinating"

    This book adds a whole new dimension to the Series. Although I've read it twice, it inspired me to go back and read it again with a new perspective.
