To be fair, this may just be that I had expected a book that gave me another perspective on the Potter series and this was not it. As a result, my expectations may have been wrong.
It's a philosophical work and it's heavy. Not being a philosopher, it's hard for me to rate it as such a work. In the book, various writers write essays about a philosophical take on various aspects of Potter stories, such as examination of the nature of a soul in the Potter universe.
If you are into philosophy, then the book is for you. If like me, you're just hooked on Harry Potter and can't get enough of it, it's the wrong book.

Any additional comments?
The basis for the arguments in this book are completely flawed. Perfect example, you cant use traits of werewolfs or boggart to deduce if Sirius who is a animagus is a man or dog. Its comparing apples and oranges. I kept listening hoping the next chapter would be better but I was wrong. By the third or fourth chapter I had to turn it off as I found myself angrily yelling back at my phone. I get that is a debate about a fictional world. However, Rowling did such an amazing job creating this world that there is now excuse for for this level of failure. I expected a lot more and was disappointed.

A lot of the content is fascinating and thought-provoking.
However, the narrator sets my teeth on edge with her patronising tone and does a rubbish job of differentiating when she's reading quotations. She also barely attempts to give the characters within those quotations distinct voices.

Very thought provoking and entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to a well-rounded philosophical analysis of the Harry Potter series.
