Hindsight is 20/20, but it’s a little disconcerting to Harry Potter fans to hear JK Rowling suggest that the Ron and Hermione relationship was a bad idea.
I never got Hermoine and Ron. He was way too self-centered to really be able to deal with “the greatest witch of her generation.”
Now we know that even Rowling thinks it was a mistake, that she forced the narrative artifically to meet where she wanted it to go, rather than let it though where it wanted to.
Still the greatest series ever but not perfect.
