it was amazing
Read from September 07 to 25, 2011

Another amazing Harry Potter story. Out of the first five books, this is the longest and the densest. The story progression is good, the introduced characters are solid and the book never felt dull. The writer made a good job in making me hate whoever I should hate, and like whoever I should like. However, the book didn't have many high moments except at the end (The last four chapters).

The end was shocking and enjoyable, indeed. Even though I knew what is going to happen already, since I've already watched the movie. What I really like about this series is that the writer has invested so much time and effort in establishing this magical setting/environment, that everything after the second book made sense. It's like she created the rules and introduced them to the reader in such a solid way, everything sounded right and normal, even though it's not.

One interesting thing is that it didn't strike me that this series is directed toward young adults until I read the fifth book. I don't know why, but I just had this feeling in the middle of this book.

Great story, nonetheless.

Johara Almogbel *nods* You won't believe the amount of mythology behind the books.

I'm not that much of a fan of the fifth book. That being said, one of my favorite scenes is when Fred and George make that swamp to piss off Dolores Umbridge. EPICNESS.
