I used to work with a guy who loved them and read them to his class, then he joined a church who told him they were evil so he stopped. When he left the church, he read them again and realised what we all knew and that was that the churchhe had been a member of was wrong.
In this case, a man has claimed to have got the ending of the book and is trying to tell people on his website as a spoiler to the book because of words the now Pope, then Cardinal Ratzinger, used against the books in the past.
I guess he has a point. After all, we don't want want to read stories about how the bravery, loyalty and friendship of good people can be used to defeat the forces of evil, do we ?
