Destiny Unfulfilled: A Critique of the Harry Potter Series - Jim Adam What a great and wonderful essay about the Harry Potter books. I'm glad that I have read it and learned about where Harry Potter succeeded and failed. I hope to take what I have learned from the book and apply it to my alternative Harry Potter fan fiction, aptly called "Harry Potter Redux". I really hope that one day, the series can be rewritten and made better. I want to see Harry as a real hero (not just the title), Dumbledore as a mentor, and a real villain because Voldemort just doesn't cover it.
