I completely agree with the person above. I think the first few books are written in such a way that a younger audience wouldn't necessarily pick up on the darker aspects of the books but at the same time, those elements aren't for the feint of heart either. Whilst no child under the age of 11 should have an understanding of what Harry has and is about to go through, it still isn't necessarily a book I would allow my own child to pick up before they are of an age that they can understand and ask questions about those elements. Having said that, these books are still a literary masterpiece and I think everybody should have the chance to enjoy it. Where these books are concerned, it connotations will always be up for discussion for generations to come purely because of the darkness of the plot.
