Well said. Why Harry Potter is not just a, "Children's Series". It baffles me when people don't get why I love this series so much. It's not just because of the magic and the characters! These books teach you something REAL and touch you in a very real way. They aren't just books, they are the truth of the world. I value everything these books have taught me and I'm better for having read them.
The early chapters in Voyager. The cave, the loneliness, a man stripped bare. The ghost of a dead man still walking. When the gods of the novel decided to take everything away from him, _everything_ except his life and his sanity. What the love story did not do in the first two books, the cave did.
