One wonders what JK Rowling had to get off her chest to compose such an insipid waste of a read. I was bored early on but struggled to page 90 (can I get a medal?) in the hope of things improving. They never did. Boring characters with lots of common flaws that I couldn't care less about. Life in an imaginary English town or two written with limited imagination and no awareness of what it takes to hold the reader's attention (JK?). If Voldemort had appeared I would have cheered him on (Down with (these particular) muggles!).
