Not what I expected.
If I could get my credit back I would.
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.
