The Harry Potter books are absolutely wonderful. That's basically the single word to describe them. It makes you want to read them. It also gives you the idea that good can come out of bad situations. Like most people say, anyone who hasn't read them should read them, that's not necessarily true. Some people probably have read the first book and still not like it much. But people have different tastes. I just canNOT wait to find out what secrets are in the fifth book. It will answer a lot of questions from the end of the fourth book, like about what Hagrid and Madame Maxime are going to do over the summer and why Professor Dumbledore wants Harry to go back to the Dursleys for his summer vacations. I don't really care about what rumours other people are making up, because you don't know for sure what's going to happen. I prefer just reading the book, because all the rumous out on the Internet are basically the same.

Rowling is an extraordinary author with a great talent that is extremely rare to come by.I hope to see many books from her and Alot more Harry!?!?!?

The entire Harry Potter series is incredible and highly imaginative. JK Rowling has extreme talent with words, and makes the book appealing to both kids and adults. Her books have been sold worldwide, and are famous. Her books are not confusing, but are humorous, dramatic. They show that even someone simple and not extremely self-confident in the beginning, not wise to the wizarding world, can defeat evil. Each wizard in Hogwarts, in case anyone doesn't already know, is sorted into a House. Each House contains people of a particular demeanor and personality. Harry is in Gryffindor of the brave. There is also Ravenclaw of the smart, Hufflepuff of the honest and kind, and Slytherin of the cunning (and, in most cases, evil, too). Harry and his friends are characters that readers can truly relate to, reacting to things around them like normal wizard kids, and fighting off evil the best they can. Harry is plagued by the scar he got when the evilest wizard in the world attempted to kill him, but regardless of this, he still finds ways to have fun in life! The Harry Potter series is truly one of good-versus-evil, and contains some deep philosophical meanings inside. The great thing about Harry, in my opinion, is that he is human. He is not a superhero, he is not haughty and self confident (like all the bad guys) and he doubts his own choices. And he feels fear. Readers can relate to this, and other things, about Harry and the other characters.
I've only named a few things that are so great about JK Rowling and her fabulous series, but this is getting long already.
I have been waiting so long for book 5, which was supposed to be published in June 2002 but wasn't. The books are better than the films because they have more character to them and the director edits out and improvises too much, taking out the spirit that made the books so wondrous.
I can't wait much longer till book 5, and hope, that, when it is published, there is an explanation.
The Harry Potter books are splendid and anyone who hasn't read them, should.

I am a big fan of the Harry Potter series. I think that all the books are off the hook and the movies are good too. At the age of 12, I am a reader who can't put a book down if it's good and the Harry Potter books are those kind! I can't wait for the fifth book, which from what I hear comes out 2003. J.K. Rowling is a awsome author with a great imagination. The only problem is that she is taking forever to write the fifth book.
*I hear rumors that the 3rd movie comes out 2004*

Wow I started reading Harry Potter in 4th grade. I got tired of reading after the first five pages because the start of the first book is wrote a little weird. After I got through about the first two chapters of the book I couldn't put the book down. It took me almost a full month to read the first book. But that first book showed me the world of reading. By fifth grade the fifth book came out and I read that in only 4 days. Harry Potter books taught me to be a better reader and writer. After I found out you weren't going to make the sixth book for about another 3 years or so I jusT lost intrest. I went on to read Lord of the Rings and other great novels of that type. I read all the Lord of the Rings in sixth grade and now I am awaiting the sixth book. I hope it comes out soon because all the Harry Potter movies are not half as good as the books.
