I am not anymore under the age of 13 nor any age of being a Teen. But I am very fond of reading.

I was watching the Harry Potter Movie "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" by DVD and was so busy with doing other tasks and can't make too much sound as everyone was sleeping that I did not manage to understand the story.

So, as I was in the shops and passed by the Harry Potter Books, I decided to buy the second book and understand the story. I realized that the book was even much better as one could easily understand the feeling of each and everyone's character with a narrator than the film and decided to buy the other books as well.

I have read all of them so quickly just because I could not put them down(I guess all books are not to put down until finished) and I got enchanted with the world of Harry Potter. Especially "The Goblet of Fire" has really touched my heart a lot, it shows even in the magical world we also have to really face danger and tragedies of life. I myself was grieving for the death of Cidric Diggory and breaking my heart out for the young Harry Potter's own way of grieving.

J.K. Rowling has written the best serial books ever, her imagination is so good and she even worked hard to get the perfect names for each character. She has not only written books for kids but of any age as well.

I can't wait for the fifth book and hopefully can manage to wait also for the rest of the other books, who would not want to know what would happen to Harry Potter and his magical world????

I think the Harry Potter series is an absolute must for people my age. It transforms you into another world full of excitement, suspense and magic. The first time I tried it I found the first bit of the Sorcerers Stone boring but than gradually, as I went through I couldnt put it down. If anyone would like to read it from my friends I would give it. I am simply restless about reading the fifth book. If anyone would like to check information on the fifth, sixth and seventh books, log on to www.google.com and go to the second title on the first page.:-D

Ps:Thanks J.K.! Your books are great!

Harry Potter's back and better then ever .Going back to Hogworts brings some trouble over into Harrys life.Dobby an annoying little house elf trys to stop Harry from going back to school. How will Harry ever get back to Hogwarts? If you haven't read the story I'll tell you one thing there's new teachers, ghosts, friends, old friends Dairys crushes snakes and more.

The first time I had heard of Harry Potter I was a little curious about it. It had been one of my friends that had told me (of course I was a bit sceptical). So borrowed the first book from him and couldn't put it down.

It was the way the book captures you in the moment. It just felt so real and alive not just imaginative.

So after I read the first book, I just had to read the others. Each one was more interesting than the next, and before I knew it, I had read the four books.

They were amazing, and I'd like to thank J.K. very much for doing what she loved the most and following her path. Thanks again.

P.S. Can't wait till book 5. (Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix)!!!!!!!! :-D

As a nonstop reader and a perspective writer I gave the Harry Potter series a rating of 5. I cried at the end of the third book and I laugh at loud at Fred and George's humour. These books allow people to escape the real world and live a life full of magic and adventure. The combat between good and evil is ingenious and the characters are so well developed you feel as though you know them personally. I am Harry Potters greastest fan and I would read all about him as long as Rowling keeps writing the books. I can not wait until The Order of the Pheonix, and I would lend the Sourcer's Stone to anyone skeptic about reading the book, you will NOT be dissapointed!
