all too right you are perg.
but that in itself is explained in the fact that critics
of the book were said to draw parralels with the plot and london bombing.
sometimes even the literary community make forced signs/conclusions in order to bring about a sense of relevance to any good story.
i personally think little of these comparisons and metaphors as i feel everyone is entitled to a say (no matter how dim-witted they may be).
my only problem is that these very people DISCOURAGE minors to read the HP series in an age where reading is overshadowed by the latest hand-held gaming device.
(no longer does a novels claim to fame start and end with: 'you can take it with you to the toilet')
