Young Readers, the Apprentice and the Potter
By MortazaviBlog on Jul 12, 2007
Cushman's book reads not only like a wonderful novella but also as a meticulous work of historical analysis. It certainly has a very good potential for becoming a great movie---I would imagine, much better than any Harry Potter.
Perhaps, someone has already made such a movie, and not being much of a movie-goer, I just don't know about it.
I think the main premise of Cushman's book is that only through pain, suffering and persistence can one disclose new worlds and give birth to what is worthy of being.
Fear, in particularly fear of failure in its various forms, remains the greatest sin.
