I've listening my way thru Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, chapter 22 The Unexpected Task and chapter 23 Yule Ball. The agony of watching a pair of ignernt 14yo boys navigate the minefield of the battle of the sexes is... interesting.

I begin to wonder if there is anyone in the books possessed of a complete set of brains. Maybe Dumbledor, but his approach is annoyingly oblique.

At least it's not as bad as the Wheel of Time series got, where if any two main characters would have ever actually sat down together and had an honest conversation, the entire annoying artiface of tension would have come crashing down.
