Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter is one of the best books I've ever read! Its so interesting and intriguing that I couldn't put it down! It took me less than 2 days to finish the 4th one which has 636 pages!! I find the series amazing and the most wonderful thing ever!!!

Okay, at first I thought that the whole Harry Potter thing was just for kids, you know? But after I read the first book, I knew I was wrong, and was completely addicted. I've read all four books so far, and have loved every one. They are just really good!! I love how the ending is always surprising, and how, as you go on in the series, things seem to come together. It really upsets me to think that some people aren't allowed to read the books, or that they are actually banned in some schools, just because it contains witchcraft. It's not evil or anything!! God, some people are just so uptight nowadays, seriously..

I have read all 4 Harry Potter books and I have loved them. They are my favorite series. I get really upset when people say that the books are just about witchcraft and the devil. That is not what these books are about. This wonderful series is about love, courage, friendship. If people say that these books are about witchcraft and the devil then they obviously are not good readers. If you were a good reader and you read these books then you would know that they are not about witchcraft. They are about an orphaned boy who goes to school. The fact that he just happens to be a wizard just helps tell the story.

My 13 year old son and I are anxiously awaiting "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" by the talented Miss Rowling. We have enjoyed the first four books immensely. I thought, like many, that this series was targeted for kids. I was way wrong. Like myself, many adults I know are really engrossed in the adventures of Harry Potter and his friends. Impressing me the most was the connotations in the book that reflect life and issues we all need to learn. Discrimination, friendship, abuse, death, to name a few. (Warewolves and giants being discriminated against) (Harry's ever loyal friends: Ron and Hermione) (and the abuse he survives at the Dursley's) (Cedric Diggory's death). While giving each reader a wonderfully "wild ride", they are also dealing with very contemporary issues. The books give the reader credit for being intelligent, in a vivid and humorous way. These books are among the best I've ever read. Keep it up, R.K. Rowling!

This series of books is just so amazing. At first I thought Harry Potter was just some books for children like the Goosebumps and was meant only for children and teenagers like me wouldn't really know how to appreciate it by now by when I opened the book and read the first few pages, to my surprise it wasn't anything like what I thought and so excited as I was I just read on and on and on and on when I finished that book I almost hurried the next day to get the third. Done with the third which was almost at 3 midnight, I wanted so miserably to get the fourth book that I went to get it right after school and it definitely made my thought about reading change. I really hope she will come out with the 5th book and I believe it would be just as good as the rest if not better(If it could be which I don't think so as the books are at its best :>)
