Boom. I’m Top 10 in Harry Potter Quotes In Texas, July 2014 on #QuizUp!
I think the way the Circle kids all become famous mages at fourteen is incredibly unrealistic. In fact, most of Tammy’s heroines end up becoming renowned. What sort of message does that send to children - that fame is the only goal worth pursuing?
What on earth is this person talking about? At no point in those books did I get the impression that the Circle kids were pursuing fame and fortune. In fact, all any of them really wanted from the beginning was to learn to control their magic and to fit in somewhere, maybe be a part of a family. They became “famous” because their magic is unique, and because they all did extraordinary things while pursuing their OTHER goals and attempting to be good, honorable people.
In other news, who really wants to read a book about an ordinary person living an ordinary life where nothing really interesting happens? I like reading about famous people who perform great deeds and lead interesting lives, fictional or otherwise. In no way does that indicate that I think fame is the only goal worth pursuing…
I know I’m getting older when my literary crushes transfer smoothly from Harry Potter & Percy Jackson to Atticus Finch & Numair Salmalin.
