  The lengthy crawl for me began in Order of the Phoenix. The Elvish Freedom Front or Society for the Protection of Elf Workers (had to google the real thing  Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare) made that novel drag for me. Voldemort has proclaimed his existence, killing a student outright, and Hermione is off organizing middling protests. Part of me applauds Rowling because that is exactly what 15-16 year old girls like Hermione do. They discover some injustice...
I was 16  when this came out, so too old, but my friends had younger siblings and I had heard it was sweeping the elementary and middle schoolers. I didn't read them till I was 20, and I picked the books up in the library. I pre-ordered Order of the Phoenix, and had to sneak back into my old apartment complex to snatch it up from the doorstep, because I had moved into a new place.  The series as a whole is one of those things I could never keep on my bookshelf as a school...
I see the big men in this thread have decided to take down the Cuckoo's nest. "All I know is this: nobody's very big in the first place, and it looks to me like everybody spends their whole life tearing everybody else down.” And I tried hard to keep it alive to the top ten. It ain't gonna work. "But I tried, didn't I? Goddamnit, at least I did that." "All we need's one vote. Just one vote. Just your one vote!" But your going to vote it down. Could vote something else,...

 It's all about aura. She presented herself as down on her luck, as someone to be picked on. They saw an easy mark, and she didn't really resist.  I have to echo the earlier sentiment about Betty Gilpin. She was fantastic in this show.   How does a Rich Sommer get so lucky, as to act against Gilpin and Brie?
