In which H. Potter is Defended (sort of)

I think a few people may indeed be discovering DWJ due to Harry Potter.  She
is always recommended on rec.arts.books.childrens when ever anyone asks for
books similar to Harry Potter.  But not all of them like her!

Not too long ago someone posted to r.a.b.c that they had read _Charmed Life_
due to the similar-to-Harry-Potter recommendations.  And they didn't like
it, and they didn't see how anyone could compare DWJ to Rowling!  Some
people have no taste...
