Again (I'm a broken record) great characters and time-old literary themes, as well as just being a very enjoyable read. I haven't gone to see the movies, because I don't want the characters in my mind replaced with British teen actors and Gary Oldman. (can't stand Gary Oldman.) Fantastic read for any age. Some of my all-time favourite literary characters are from this series, like Dumbledore and Sirius Black. The books get heavier (literally and metaphorically) as the series progresses. The first book is the most child-like, shorter and lighter fare. The last book is downright philosophical and practically qualifies as a doorstop it's so weighty. The HP series is kind of like literary comfort food around here, if there's nothing else to read we'll just grab one and dive in. A definite must-read!

    I loved these books. I never got into them at the same time the world went into its "Harry Potter Rage", but I couldn't help but give then a once over before I judged those people. They were right, in the end. The author gives us a parallel world where, once again, you can't help but hope it is as real as you or me. Set mostly in a school that, dare I say, every person who read the books wished their parents had sent them when they were little, the story seems to captivate with mysterious spells I loved these books.

Set mostly in a school that, dare I say, every person who read the books wished their parents had sent them when they were little, the story seems to captivate with mysterious spells, strange people, and all around "what happens next!?-ness). The main cast is made up of 3 characters who bounce information, hilarity, and small jabs of honesty and cruelty at each other. What makes it more interesting is the fact that these kids go to school while doing the exact things that could get them kicked out in order to progress the story. I am not a Harry Potter fanatic, however. I do not wear "Muggle" shirts or have a wand. And yet, the depth of the story is very obliging to what I really wanted in a book. For a small while, it made me a child again. You will not regret this read.

    Great books-(and number 7!) I would only say that the plot is very similar to The Lord of the Rings( the ring has to be destroyed, so do the horcruxes ), as are some of the characters: Gimli ----> hagrid Dumbledore ----> gandalf Anyway, they are excellent books, very inspirational. A new world has been created!

    Harry Potter is regarderd as one of the best and most influential pieces of fiction ever to be written. I have no choice but to agree. This series sparked my love for reading and fantasy, which I am every grateful for. A review of content and themes is completely unnecessary, as virtually the entire population of the United States of America is knowledgeable of that content. However, I will say one thing: if you do not read Harry Potter in your lifetime, then you have failed as a reader.

And THEN come the legion of fans who step up and try to fix this profoundly feable work. Pathetic. I enjoyed the book for its worth but this "phenomenon" drives me up the wall. I only hope these people's new-found enthusiasm for the genre spills quickly from this shallow cup into goblets of truer fire.

    The Sorcerer's Stone: 4/5 Harry Potter had his life stolen from him before it ever had the chance to begin. He's haunted by nightmares of green explosions and evil laughter. His parents were violently murdered when he was just a baby. He's forced to live with his wicked aunt, uncle and cousin who treat him worse than garbage. His life is a complete disaster until he learns on his eleventh birthday that's he's a wizard destined for great things as well as having already accomplished quite a few of The Sorcerer's Stone: 4/5 Harry Potter had his life stolen from him before it ever had the chance to begin. He's haunted by nightmares of green explosions and evil laughter. His parents were violently murdered when he was just a baby. He's forced to live with his wicked aunt, uncle and cousin who treat him worse than garbage. His life is a complete disaster until he learns on his eleventh birthday that's he's a wizard destined for great things as well as having already accomplished quite a few of them without even realizing it. Many strange, exciting and dangerous things are waiting for him at Hogwarts; the notorious school for wizards. To say I'm very late to the party is an understatement. Harry Potter was pretty much the only fantasy series I ever heard other people my age talking about when I was younger and they spoiled it for me before I ever had the chance to read it myself. After many years have passed and having read hundreds of other fantasy series, I've forgotten about most of the chatter, hype and spoilers revolving around the critically acclaimed series and I decided it was the perfect time to give it a go. I'm glad I did because I enjoyed it far more than I expected I would. It was fun and witty, adventurous and full of simple yet relatable emotional depth. There were moments that made me feel for the protagonists such as when Harry looked into the Mirror of Erised and saw his dead parents that he desperately wanted to be meet since he was a baby and when Harry solidified his friendship with Ron and Hermione after battling the troll. There were also a lot of charming antics and quips that genuinely made me laugh at times, especially the line regarding Dudley at the very end of the book. The opening chapters didn't intrigue me all that much at first, but once Hagrid was introduced I ended up growing attached to his character and many others that were introduced soon after. Hagrid remained my favorite character to the end of the book. He's intimidating yet a big softy, he loves breeds of creatures that have been shunned and deemed unworthy of affection because of their dangerous reputations, he stands up for the defenseless and he's an all around cool and jolly guy. I like the gentle and mysterious nature of Dumbledore, there's more to him than meets the eye. Snape strikes me as the tragic antihero type that acts cruel to hide his inner insecurities and fear of showing affection do to past trauma. I’m also curious about Voldemort and his relationship with Harry’s parents. Voldy is a creepy, spiteful bastard and he knows how to make an entrance. I'm looking forward to finally getting to know these characters that I've heard so much about. *** Chamber of Secrets: 4/5 Harry is back at Hogwarts after another brutal summer with the Dursley family and it's not all fun and games when he returns. Snape and Malfoy are still giving him trouble, a malicious voice whispers dark things to him that no one else can hear, someone or something is attacking the students and Harry is framed as the most likely suspect. Harry and his friends have no choice but to put their lives on the line to get to the bottom of things and prevent the destruction of Hogwarts from within by unraveling its many forgotten secrets. A bit of a slow burner in the beginning, but I ended up appreciating the world building regarding the more defined relationships between wizard and muggle societies and how they can coexist, as well as learning about the histories of each respective branch at Hogwarts, especially regarding Slytherin and its connections to both Harry and Voldemort. Another thing I really liked about this book was the well-crafted murder-mystery vibe and the more dark themes of crime and violence sprinkled throughout it. I thought I knew who the culprit was for most of the book, but it turns out that I couldn't have been more wrong. I love being surprised and the revelation of the true culprit was really cool. I can see the series being more plot-focused and mature as it goes on. (Hagrid is still the GOAT and Dumbledore's pretty cool too, even if he's a bit reckless and makes questionable decisions sometimes.) *** Prisoner of Azkaban: 4/5 The deranged serial killer Sirius Black has broken out of Azkaban; the most brutal and horrifying prison for criminal wizards in the world. Harry has finally had enough of the Dursleys abuse and storms off on his own, not knowing that Sirius Black is searching for him. Omens of death are all around Harry, and this is confirmed in his first divination class at Hogwarts when Professor Trelawney predicts that his time is almost up. At his most trying year at Hogwarts yet, Harry confronts the bizarre horrors of the soul-sucking creatures known as dementors, comes face-to-face with an escaped mass murderer and uncovers the dark secrets that led to his parents tragic deaths. I’m noticing that the themes within the books are slowly getting more dark, mature and personal. It gives the feeling that we’re growing up along with Harry and his friends which is a nice touch. It keeps things interesting and gives a sense of constantly growing danger on the horizon. My favorite part of Prisoner of Azkaban is the introduction of Sirius and Lupin, two interesting and fleshed out characters who have mysterious relations with Harry and his parents. I especially loved the surprising revelation of the ‘true’ villain of this book, shedding some light on what really happened on the day Harry’s parents were killed. The final six or so chapters were the most thrilling stuff I've seen from the series so far. The introduction of the dementors, the psychological thriller elements of betrayal and long lasting grudges being dug up and the looming promise of Voldemort's return made this more intense than Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets. More darkness and horror is always welcome in fantasy. Even Ron's pet rat Scabbers gets some huge development that I certainly wasn't expecting. Hagrid is still my favorite character but Sirius and Lupin have quickly worked their way up to my 2nd and 3rd favorites. I also like Hermione much better in this one as she's been easing up on the snobbish attitude and showing some grit. She also stood up for Harry and Ron quite a bit in this one even when they couldn't appreciate what she was doing for them. She's earned my respect. I hear the second half of the series is where all the best stuff happens so I’m excited to be fast approaching that point. *** Goblet of Fire: 5/5 Goblet of Fire begins with Harry having a dreadful vision of Voldemort conspiring with Wormtail about his destined resurrection to power. He wakes with his scar burning more than ever, reminding him that danger is growing closer and closer. He joins Hermione and the Weasley's at the Quidditch World Cup to take his mind off the constant burning of his scar, only for things to go horribly wrong. When the sign of the dark mark is seen at the event, the imminent return of Voldemort is made known to all. On top of this, Professor Dumbledore announces the return of the Triwizard Tournament, an ancient tradition that allows wizarding schools from all around the world to bond and compete in friendly competition. Things get even worse at Hogwarts when Harry's name is mysteriously drawn from the Goblet of Fire, forcing him to compete in many dangerous competitions against foreign wizarding schools against his will. All while dealing with the pressures of puberty, trying to discover who snuck his name in the Goblet of Fire and the looming threat of Voldemort, Harry faces his most challenging year at Hogwarts yet. The first three books are fun and witty adventure stories with touches of emotional triumph, moral dilemmas and subtle creepiness, but this one completely blows everything that came before it out of the water. The characters are growing and learning about love, religion, slavery, genocide, prejudice, racism and the darker side of the wizarding world. People are starting to die and scandalous truths are being revealed. Traitors as far as the eye can see, double agents hunting down innocent wizards and muggles, Voldemort coming back in full force. The stakes are higher than ever before. So many crazy things happened in this book that completely changed the tone and intensity of the series. The jolly days of childhood are over and the horrors of the world are slowly coming into view. The trials of the Goblet of Fire were exciting and much more interesting than the typical quidditch competitions. The introduction of several other wizarding schools into the story expanded the horizons of the main characters and opened the world to more intriguing possibilities. I’ve learned to appreciate and sympathize with Harry a lot more as he was incredibly brave and noble this time around. His final scene at the end of the book involving a certain act of kindness to Ron’s siblings really solidified the respect I have for him. I also enjoyed his friendship with Cedric. One thing that did annoy me a bit was the mistreatment of Hermione. I always thought she was a much better friend to Harry than Ron, yet both of the boys always seem to take her for granted and never give her the respect she deserves. Even when Harry and Ron have a big falling out over something very childish, Hermione instantly swoops in to support Harry and tries to mend their friendship. And right after the drama between the boys is settled, they go right back to treating Hermione as a third wheel. She deserves better imo. (Hagrid is still the GOAT, his relationship with Madam Maxine made for many entertaining scenes that also introduced some interesting lore regarding the history of giants.) *** Can't fit the rest of the series into the review so I'm going to paste them into the comments!

    *Spoiler free* Harry Potter is the best of the best. I find myself comparing every single book I read to Harry Potter, and everything else pales in comparison. I'm sure every other review talks about how the plot/story is an intricate web, and how there's a beautiful interconnectedness between everything (which is true), but something that really stands out to me is that at the beginning of the series we start with peace.

I find myself comparing every single book I read to Harry Potter, and everything else pales in comparison. I'm sure every other review talks about how the plot/story is an intricate web, and how there's a beautiful interconnectedness between everything (which is true), but something that really stands out to me is that at the beginning of the series we start with peace. We seem to be in a renaissance period where every other book starts in chaos and/or a dystopia. It then becomes the main goal of the protagonist to fight oppression or to build a utopia. I get it, everyone's writing about chaos because the world we live in is chaos, but what makes Harry Potter so unique is that when we're introduced to the Wizarding World we get to see a society of order. Of course there's kinks in the system (ex- blood prejudice, idiot politicians) but we fall in love with a world at peace. Later in the series when chaos reigns suddenly the world we've come to love and recognize is pulled out from beneath us. That's why it's so heart wrenching when the ice cream parlour's broken into or the hourglasses carrying the house points are smashed. It's the "little things" that we've come to know and love that are taken away during the dark days that make ours- not just Harry's- quest for vengeance and justice real. We get 4-5 books with a solid basis for how the Wizarding World should be, which is why it's just so much more satisfying when the battle's won as we're able to (finally) return to the familiar. Don't get me wrong, series like The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones have a brilliant chaos that heartbreakingly convey the ugly of our world, but at the end of it all, when the villains are defeated, I'm not as satisfied because I don't know what type of peace or world the characters are returning to or are going to build. Another reason why Harry Potter is #1 is because of the world building. I think there's a reason why Harry Potter is the only book series (that I know of) to have a theme park. Correction, multiple theme parks. The world is just so tangible and real. There's a logic to the world, and we get all the minuscule details (which are very crucial to world building). Everything's described to us; food, clothing, toys, sports, politics, you name it. Hogwarts starts as a fictional setting but quickly becomes a home. Every review will probably tell you this but the heart of Harry Potter lies in the characters. What absolute gems. Honestly, they're real people. Flawed, stubborn, heart warming, absolutely lovable characters with consistent personalities. Our villains are just as complex as our heroes, and although there is clearly a battle between good and evil, every character has a bit of both in them. Each character serves a purpose, and each death has a meaning. No one's just thrown into the story without a personality or motive. Everything and everyone has a meaning, which makes the story so compelling. Of course, I can't leave this unsaid even though I'm not the first one to say it. Harry Potter is very much about friendship, love, and bravery, but it's also about so much more. Prejudice, racism, discrimination, classism, oppression, and slavery are all themes in the series. Not only is this a story about people fighting for the greater good to rid the world of evil, but it's also a social commentary about the dents in our society and how these oppressive and abusive systems have become engrained in our world. The mistreatment of non-wizards, the hierarchy of blood purity, the humiliation of the poor, and the abuse of authority are all analogies. The oppression in the series is just a mirrored version of the oppression in our society. It teaches us to be brave, stand together, and love always in the face of tyranny, which I think is a message worth writing in stone. So, if you haven't read Harry Potter I highly recommend you do. You'll laugh, cry, and probably come to accept Hogwarts as your home.

This book meant so much to my childhood, and kept me up late at night, hiding underneath my blanket from my parents as I attempted to just read 'one more chapter.' I am currently studying the Swedish language, and as part of that I am rereading the Harry Potter series in Swedish, beginning with the first book 'Harry Potter och den Vises Sken.' By doing this I am gaining much more from the series than simple childish enjoyment: I am growing as an individual. This book series brought my family together, as I remember my aunt acting out the characters in the books as she read them aloud to me and my cousins.

Will marfugaloz fall in love and marry whickensob? Can Valkuzelibs good be enough to over come Bagentoo's evil? So many questions left unanswered - I'm practically wetting myself thinking about how all this comes together in volume 9042!

    I think I'm finally at the age where I feel a bit weird about Harry Potter, but aren't we all? It's hard to write a 7-book series of gigantic epics about a teenage wizard and keep your fanbase at the same age. But whatever. I doubt anyone who's read the first six books is going to ignore the last one and let some dickwad on the 6 o'clock news tell them how it ends. Will Harry die? I dunno. Is Snape really evil? I doubt it. Is Dumbledore really, truly dead? Shit no. But maybe now that all the char I think I'm finally at the age where I feel a bit weird about Harry Potter, but aren't we all?

Can all those descriptions of Hermione as "bushy haired" really not have some deeper, more lustful meaning? Let's not kid ourselves. sorry, that was really nasty.

    I think all the Harry Potter books are wonderful. The love between friends, adopted family. The strength, yet weaknesses of the characters are believable. I love them all so much. I wish I were part of the Weasley family. I have read each one at least twice if not more. I learned about good vs evil, which I already knew about but you know what I mean. Standing up for what you believe in no matter what. Just because someone is different than you doesn't mean that they aren't special too. That peo I think all the Harry Potter books are wonderful.

    OK...probably almost pointless to put a review of the Harry Potter books out here...but nonetheless. If you haven't read these books yet, you should. I would say these are going to be one of the biggest pop culture icons of this part of the century. What Star Wars was to those of us growing up in the 80s - Harry Potter is to those growing up in the 2000s. The books are quite cleverly written. The writing is surprisingly good, with lots of little puns within professor names and such.

    I remained skeptical & snobbish about this series for quite awhile, until my son wanted me to read the first book to him. It hooked me, & I am now quite sad that the series is done. But I'm glad the author went out on a high note. Highlights: The Sorcerer's Stone, The Prisoner of Azkaban, & the Deathly Hallows were the best; 5 stars for those. I probably enjoyed the Order of the Phoenix the least. All, by the way, far outstrip their respective movies, but I must admit that when I read the books I remained skeptical & snobbish about this series for quite awhile, until my son wanted me to read the first book to him.

    i love all of these books, my favorite is #4. i love the character development in each book, especially how rowling pin points the emotions of a child moving from childhood into their teenage years. i first read them because my students LOVED them and i wanted to use the literature in my teaching, but now i'm on my second time throught the series. i love them more this time around than the first. i love all of these books, my favorite is #4. i love the character development in each book, especially how rowling pin points the emotions of a child moving from childhood into their teenage years. i first read them because my students LOVED them and i wanted to use the literature in my teaching, but now i'm on my second time throught the series. i love them more this time around than the first.

    So, I decided I should finally know about this Harry Potter thing that the rest of the world read/saw years ago! Some nights it kept me up and others I just felt compelled to keep reading so I could finally get the whole story arc. I'm still not a fantasy fan in general but I did like reading the books...I've even started the movies...one down, 6 to go?
