Much as I enjoy the book, most of the things that bug me relate to the
administration of the Triwizard Tournament (the stuff that, once I get past
it, I can enjoy everything else).  Like--would a school *really* let a kid
off taking final exams for any reason?  Exams that have been such a big fat
hairy deal in the past?  The logic really is gimmicky.
