The Plot Thickens is a good read for Potter fans who want to take their series analysis further in-depth. Many aspects of the series are investigated by different writers, which makes the book interesting.

This book reviews all the clues that are presented by JK Rowling in the first 4 Harry Potter books. It breaks the clues down as to specific for that book and/or related to the entire septology. The book also points out the connections between names and numbers to events and people. However, this book also leans more toward the UK versions of the book rather than the US version.
I liked the sections for each chapter where the action is paraphrased and then it is followed by the explanation of the clues. Then each chapter is summarized for oddities and questions raised.
This approach definitely makes you look at the books from a different point of view. However, I'm not sure that it really helps the appreciation of the story.

Galadriel Waters uses the archetypal hero's journey, as well as other literary techniques to descipher the Harry Potter series. Waters' does a good job of analyzing the series, making comparisions, and making predictions for future books using these techniques. A definite read (or reread) for Potterphiles.
