More unnecessary Potter-trashing

I've just read this "review" of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in The Guardian, courtesy of a writer friend. He's complaining about Ms. Rowling's prose????? And his standard is, somebody should't write something like "The count walked into the drawing room"?????? Well, okay. Rowling uses too many adverbs. Sure she could have used an editor. But as this same writer friend pointed out, the reviewer entirely missed the point. Because it's not "about" the prose, it's about the story. I supoose if he'd been living in the year 1000, he would have been complaining about Beowulf, for heaven's sake. Jeez. Some people!
