I believe that Harry is not growing up, and he is just facing the same problems over and over. He meets with Voldemort every book and each is so like the last one, I feel I am going to puke. He still hates Malfoy,still hates Snape, still hates Voldemort. Still is friends with Ron and Hermione and Hagrid. Still loved by friends and strangers alike. Honestly, invent a little won't you? It just bothers me so much that a talented writer like Rowling is just transporting the same plot from place to place and melting it a bit to fit the mold. I'm not reading the fifth. She lost a once loyal reader.

Hi, May I introduce myself as one of the millions and millions of Harry Potter fans. I have been more than pleased at the HP wave across the world - its back to Books(the ones with paper in them). I have been an avid reader from the age of 5 or 6 and it pained me no end to see the neglect of books as forms of entertainment in this modern age. As to Harry, well, the series is not exactly in the "Children" genre. I mean, its for all and accepted by all. I still consider Enid Blyton to be the greatest children books' author ever. Though I personally still read them and love them, most adults don't. Its because they ARE for kids. The Harry series is more universal in its popularity and appeal (not that its necessarily superior- yeah, I have a slight partiality for Miss Blyton and in particular, her school series). I am eagerly awaiting the next Harry. The way the book have developed from the light to the dark has been amazing, each novel gets darker than the one before - it has so far culminated in that thrilling finale of the Goblet of Fire. And there is little doubt that it shall only get darker.Yes, the wait is long - and Rowling will have to be on her toes(oops, her nails rather) to live up to the huge (its pretty huge)expectations. Waiting for more to come - after the seven too.

When I first read the Harry Potter series I thought they were great. But after awhile I realized that they were not that great of literature. I also realized that even though the series was very popular that other series were very much better. I would rather read a series like the Betsy-Tacy series, or a Newberry winner like, Hitty: Her First Hundred Years. These books are much more worthwhile and captivating. I would not recommend these books to anyone.

The Sorcerer's Stone is really great book. I read it very fast because I get too interested on it. If you haven't read it, you must read it, you are gonna love it. I have read only that book, and I am about reading the second, the Chamber of Secrets.

I love the Harry Potter series. I never liked to read but when my mom got me the first book as a gift i decided to read it. I couldn't put it down it was so interesting. It took me a while to read the first to because of school and never having the time but I loved them when i got done. I finished the third book on my day off of school and I'm currently working on the 4th. The values that it teaches are so true and should be taught to everybody. This is not just a book for kids i know a lot of people who read this series and love it. I am only 14 yrs. old but I used to come home and watch t.v but when my mom got me these books I turned the t.v off and just had to read them.
