As an educated, fairly intelligent 40-something, I am obviously unable to figure this out,
so maybe one of you younger 'Boxers can explain something to me:
In a world of super-powerful ancient magic, where evil mastermind Lord Voldersomething battles wise Dumbledore
and his allies, masters of good magic... how does it happen that puzzles and traps built to thwart powerful
highly-experienced wizards and witches are undone (time and time again) by a couple of pre-teen n00bz, one
of whom has only known that magic even exists for a couple of years? ...usually after five whole minutes
or less of serious thought, and never with any particular advance preparation?
[Mind you. I quite enjoyed all of the books, and the movies so far have been ok...]
