Harry Potter - Why?

Yesterday I watched the madness surrounding the release of Harry Potter. What the hell? After all it is just a fairy tale!!
I have read the first two books in the series. They are well written, enjoyable and all, but I don't think it deserves all this attention. The media seemed to be waiting to celebrate the occasion. Both the newspapers I subscribe to, had front page snaps of the event. hmm... Media hype!

I am not against fantasy at all. I love fantasy and wizards,gnomes and goblins. My favourite books include Enid Blyton classics. I think I enjoyed Blyton books much more. This seems to be a very commercialised version of Enid Blyton and the author seems to be suing everybody around her when she is not writing the books!

Today I get to see The Matrix - Reloaded, again promoted with so much hype. Hope this is better.
