Pretty much hated the first book (unfortunately), the second and third were just OK. The rest were GREAT. Gotta love Draco!

The Harry Potter series was the book series that turned me into a reader. I wasn't much of a reader before I was introduced to this WONDERFUL magical world! I thank Harry Potter for my life. Because I don't know where I would be if I didn't have books and I wouldn't have books without starting to read without the series. Hermione Granger is the person who is the role model that I will always remember because she was a leader, she was intelligent, and like me, she was a book person! Books hold th ...more

I LOVE HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Need I say more? no? Well I will anyway! Harry potter was the book that turned me into a writing loving reading hating child (because i was not very good at reading at the time) into a writing loving reading ADORING child! Harry potter had everything I could ever want in a book and it set the tone for many books that I read after it and I also watched all the movies though they were a bit dissapointing but a very good attempt all the sam ...more

Harry Potter is a nice enough read, no doubt. I read it during my first English learning stages (after about 9 months of English courses during high school) because the language was so very easy to understand. It was quite entertaining, sure, especially the first three books, but it didn't have a lot of substance. I could easily name a couple of children's fantasy books (not to mention adult ones) I found much more challenging and enthralling than Harry Potter. I guess, I just don't really under ...more

This books is very imaginative. When you read it, you can imagine that you're inside the world of Harry Potter. This book can improve reader's imagination.

When you read Harry Potter (1-5) but you're not using your imagination then there's no fun I think. And if you haven't watch the Harry Potter movies, I suggest you finnish the book first then you watch the movie...

And in my humble opinion (imho), I found the book is more interesting than the movie...there's a lot of scene that change in the mo

The series is so eminently readable, it's hard to put down. Whoever knew poor orphan Harry would face so many trying times in his young life? Many many times I've laughed while reading. Small wonder Rowling is a prize-winner. The complex come-of-age stuff and tales of the larger moral universe are engaging (sometimes so harsh!) and mysteries are satisfying too. For me I think the first book was the most charming and had the most emotional impact. Of course I'm only too happy to continue reading. ...more

It's not like the world needs yet another commentary on the obsessively compelling world of Harry Potter, but given that I was strangely immersed in its fanfiction, I felt induced to give myself the antidote by reading the actual books. That accomplished in seven days, one book per day, did work as the hair of the dog. Quite grueling was this reading marathon too, and why I took a reading break afterwards in order to catch up on much needed sleep.

What I came out of the books was a deeper underst

I absolutely love all the Harry Potter books. I have read them all once and because I'm such an audiobook fan I have listened to Jim Dale's spectacular performance so many times I've lost count. I have even listened once through to Stephen Fry who reads for the British version of the books. He did a fantastic job. It's a series that I will come back to over and over and not get tired. And what I love so much is that each time I read it I notice a new detail I'm not sure I noticed last time. ...more

I have read all the Harry Potter books. I liked the book so much that I was one of those people who waited in line for the next book to come out. The books are fulled with action. Readers keep on reading to find out what Harry and his friends next and to see if good wins out in the end. This book goes over issues like morals and religion and individual choices. This book shows you how all your life choices adds up in the big picture of things.

Although she writes under the pen name J.K. Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she ch
