When I first met my wife's family and her father and sister heard that I was a Doctoral student in Literature, they began to rant and rave about how wonderful Harry Potter is, asking if I'd read every single book like they did. I, naturally, recoiled in horror. Don't get me wrong. I'm going to see the movie tomorrow night. But that doesn't change the fact that this whole series is over-rated. It's good. Just not that good.

In no particular order, I present to you (immediately after the jump) why I think Harry Potter is entirely overrated...
