message 1: by Marc (new)

Marc So how are the Harry Potter books set in two worlds? Magic vs. Muggle?


message 2: by Tatjana (new)

Tatjana I'm thinking the other pullman books were needed in this list.


message 3: by Annalisa (new)

Annalisa The Looking Glass Wars is another one.


message 4: by Erika (new)

Erika uhh, yeah harry lives in the muggle world during the summer and in the magic world during the school time.


message 5: by Phoebe (new)

Phoebe Seriously, "two worlds" is ridiculously vague. You could justify the Lions of al-Rassan being on here, or the Lord of the Rings (Shire vs. the wide world.)


message 6: by Emma (new)

Emma I agree... The Harry Potter books are amazing, but they can't really be qualified as "two worlds"--technically, the Muggles and the Wizards exist in the same world.

My favorite is Neverwhere.


message 7: by Morgan (new)

Morgan Black, Red, and White by Ted Dekker all take place it 2 worlds.... I would vote for them if they were on there...


message 8: by Bhen (new)

Bhen wtf TWILIGHT is all in the lists although it doesnt met conditions about that lists. Twilight di hard fans is so pathetic. they putting twilight eevrywhere for everyone to like it. tssss :|


message 9: by Erika (new)

Erika Twilight, Harry Potter, and The Dark Materials TRILOGY (the first book takes place in Lyra's world only) don't really belong here.

Love love love Neverwhere. It got me into fantasy to begin with.


message 10: by Ally (new)

Ally I deleted the Harry Potter books and Twilight. Neither are "set in two worlds". They're both set on Earth. There is no characters going from one world to another.

You can add books pretty easily. I've added Black, Red, and White. They're some of my favorites too!

Patrick Scaffido Marc wrote: "So how are the Harry Potter books set in two worlds? Magic vs. Muggle?"

I saw Harry Potter on a romance list so I think someone has decided Harry Potter is all the books.

Patrick Scaffido George wrote: "Seriously, "two worlds" is ridiculously vague. You could justify the Lions of al-Rassan being on here, or the Lord of the Rings (Shire vs. the wide world.)"

I think the primary focus is alternate dimension sort of stories: like Narnia or Peter Pan where you travel between the real world and magical otherworlds.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay, totally 2 worlds - here and "Summerland" (Elfland). The Ballad of Young Tam Lin by Patricia A. Leslie


message 15: by Laura (new)

Laura It clearly states in the description, "travel from this world to another." I think that rules out Harry Potter.


message 16: by SparksofEmber (last edited Jan 30, 2015 12:44PM) (new)

SparksofEmber Deleted The Horse & His Boy. While other Narnia books have children travel from this world to another, The Horse & His Boy take place entirely within Narnia. Also removed Outlander - she travels back in time, not to another world.

How does Charlie & The Chocolate Factory fit the criteria? Should it be removed, too?

Also, if Harry Potter doesn't fit, I don't think the Mortal Instruments books fit either...

Completely missed that! Good call.

Yeah I don't see how Charlie or Harry fit. I guess someone was thinking the world of chocolate and the norm? And I haven't read Harry Potter but from my knowledge and other people's comments he doesn't fit. I'll remove those two.


message 18: by Laura (new)

Laura If I'm correct Percy Jackson never traveled to a different world in book #1? It's been a while sine I read it but I don't remember anything like that.


message 19: by SparksofEmber (new)

SparksofEmber I haven't read it, only seen the movies. But in the movie he goes to Olympus via elevator - would that count?


message 20: by Laura (new)

Laura Oh I forgot about that. Seems like it's stretching it, but I suppose it's still fitting the description. :/


message 21: by Wrayth (last edited Jan 07, 2020 11:30AM) (new)

Wrayth EDIT: found it and I'll add it to the list. Touchstone by Peter Regan! Anyone know of a young adult book that has the two protagonists transported to another world due to a stone? during a plane journey, the plane crashes but they disappear during the crash I think.

After the quest/adventure, when they manage to return home, they reappear in the field that the plane they were on had crashed but decades later...
