Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
In my opinion, the Harry Potter series is very well written and really deserves all of the awards it has won. A few years ago, I got a taste of book number 2 and couldn't wait to read the series. Since then, I have read each book so many times I can't keep track. Everything about Harry Potter thrills me. Everytime I read each book, I discover something new. My sister and I hear all the rumors of the next book and try to catch each hint of who's going to be what. If you want a hint, look on pages 80 and 713 of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for refrences of Mrs. Figg, the neighbor down the street. (The muggle neighbor, or so we think). E-mail me if you want to talk about Harry Potter.

J.K. Rowling has a lot going for her. Not only do these books have excitement,fear and a creative story-line, they make you regret putting the book down after you have begun it. The characters are brave, and strong, which allows many children to look up to them with different situations. For myself, reading all four books, I can honestly say the 5th year will surely meet the other books great standards.

I think that the Harry Potter series is amazingly captivating. It's a fantasy but, J.K. Rowling has used her talent to bring a sense of reality to the reader. When I first picked one up, I would never have imagined that a book could be so inspiring and hopeful. I would really encourage anyone who has never read one of the books to read one and join the rest of the world in this experience.

These are the best books I have ever read! The whole series is a genius of a work, and entertaining beyond belief. Rowling takes you to other worlds while still mixing up everyday life with her books. I don't really like reading, but when it comes to Harry Potter, the favorite part of my day comes at night when I kick back and relax reading the piece of art by Rowling. I am definately a fan and I am awaiting the next book anxiously! Don't stop writting Rowling! You're a genius!

I had bumped with several books on Harry Potter. Then, as I thought that my daughter would like it, I bought book one. I sat down and read it to my, then 8 year old daughter. We were both quite impressed by the vividness, and humanity in the book. I rushed to buy the whole series and have read it both in english and spanish -our mother tongue-.
I must say that I have read fiction since I was a little kid, and I haven't read such a brilliant series of books. So Good, in fact, that every new book is better that the previous.
It was time that kid-lit had such a rush of a great author that goes way beyond kid to general literature and be such a huge hit. It is well deserved.
I cannot describe how good they are. Discover that by yourself.
