Re: Reactions of Non-readers

Actually the book doesn't have a villain too. HBP is a transitional book. I am not a big fan of it but it's the calm before the storm. There is this mystery about Draco's mission and Snape's royalty and that's pretty much it.
Yes, but that's what I was saying. It's an inherent issue with the material.

OotP's main plots deal with the Ministry branding Harry a madman, an evil woman disassembling Hogwarts from the inside, and Voldemort getting deeper and deeper into Harry's psyche.

Compare that to HBP's main plots, which are Harry cheating at potions, and eyeing Ron's little sister. It just doesn't have quite the same sense of urgency. Even if very little actually happens in OotP, there's still urgency and drama.
