Um.  It's been a while since I've read the books, but I recall that scene as
being fairly soft-focus - maybe I'm remembering wrong.  And I didn't first
read the books till I was an adult, so I suppose I have a different attitude
anyway.  But I did give the first book to my 14-year-old cousin for Xmas one
year, and as far as I know she went and got the other two as well - I heard
no objections from her or her parents.  So, I guess it's a YMMV thing.
