The reading that had the biggest impact on me or stuck with me the most was definitely the Waetjen and Gibson article "Harry Potter and the Commodity Fetish: Activating Corporate Readings In the Journey from Text to Commercial Intertext" After reading this article I remember being really almost upset. I found what they were saying about class in a book meant for young people honestly pretty much ridiculous. It was reading way to much into a mythical world of wizardry. Saying that Harry only had all this success was because he had the money to get the best stuff, unlike his friend Ron who did not have much money and was not as good at magic as his pals did not make sense to me either. Harry lived under the freaking stairs in his relatives house where he was pretty much a servant! Harry was not better at magic than most because of what he had he was better at it because he had the skills to do it. They compare Harry to his cousin which is completely not right. Even in their different worlds they were nothing like each other. I do not think that JK Rowling intended to include as much of class definition in her books as the authors criticized the book about it. Her book took off and became crazy popular, good for her. I feel like the authors would not be criticizing the book the way they did if it didn't become so popular.
