When Harry Potter began to be the daily word in our household I decided, as a parent, I needed to read the series to see what all the excitement was about. I was pleased and excited to find that HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE by J.K. Rowlings was one of the best books I had read in years. The plot is complex enough to hold the interest of an adult and fanciful enough to grab the interest of any child.

i happen to think that this book is quite good. It starts off a bit slow but then gets a lot better. I love the parts about Harry and Cho, but hate it when Harry keeps losing it and says the wrong thing. He surely can't be that bad when it comes to girls! When I read it. I find that I got sort-of addicted to it and couldn't put it down. Sometimes it's because I am really into it, and have to read on! Other times its just because I just want to get the book over and done with and read the next book (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince). I think J.K. Rowling is a superb author and has written the books very well, but I would prefer it if the books had a bit more romance in them.

I was, I confess, disappointed in Order of the Phoenix. True, I raced through it in a couple of days and I recently read it again, but it seemed she'd lost some of the things I loved about the earlier Harry Potter books. She was still funny, quirky and creative, but her characterization was off with Harry. All right, he's fifteen and he's had a hard time, but he could not have changed so much in a few weeks (end GoF to start OP). He's so aggressive and moody it just doesn't correlate with old Harry. Also, the ending was weaker than usual, both plotwise but mostly just her writing. She simply tried to hard to make it tragic enough, what with Dumbledore's lamentations etc.
