My son is 12 and a voracious reader, but this series seems too adult (referring to sexual content and torture scenes etc) for his age, but not sure when is appropriate to allow him to read it.
I know he could understand and process it though, just concerned about the adult concepts.
It is no different than aLord of the Rings
content wise. There is a chance he might not like it, as Harry (our narrator) has a weird sense of humor. But if he does like it, there is no reason not to let him read it. Sure there is violence, but so far fetched from reality that it is clear that it is fiction. There is not many younger people either for him to associate.
