I am a 21 year old college student who loves the Harry Potter book series. I commend JK Rowlings delicious plots and vivid characters. Harry Potter is not just a childrens series; it is for all ages. I have run into numerous people at the college level who have read and fallen head over heals for Harry Potter and his fascinating life. My roomates and I are only three of them! JK Rowling has written a series I will love and teach my family to love when I have one!

I have just finished the sequel of the Harry Potter books. As the rest of us was, I was so much impressed by how well the stories were written. Every single incident turns out to be a necessary plot by quite unexpected ways. And how all the plots were revealed and cascade into a conclusion! Amazing. I'm eagarly looking forward to reading the next one.
I would like to give all of the four books two-thumbs-up, but my ranking of the series would be III > II > IV > I. III was put at the top because my favorite is Sirius Black. I was moved when Harry realized that it was himself, not his father, who saved Sirius Black by sending his unicorn Patronous. It showed his yearning for the late parents and a hidden strength strength of his that carries him without them at the same time.
The Goblet of Fire is written as good as the others, but I found it very controversial. I mean, of course, the death of Cedric. It casted a shadow on otherwise cheerful stories of this series. I wonder how the author can save it so as not to make the next installement darker and more serious. I hope she will manage to maintain the uplifting tone until the end.

I'm 14 years old and have never been interested in reading at all. I've tryed and tryed to find a book that I enjoy, but until I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone I just couldn't find any book that I liked. This book is magnificent and so is the other 3 that have been published since then. While reading these books you seem like your in the story. Once you start reading these books you can't put them down. I can't wait until the 5th one comes out, I'm sure it will great to!

Finaly caved in to the Harry Potter bandwagon when I saw the movie. I read all the books in about four days. She is an excellent writer but more than that, she is a "wizard" with settings and characters. I have never felt such a magical connection with characters in a book before. It is a story that allows it's readers to escape to a place where anything can happen. It is a doorway for the spirit to travel to places that somewhwere, and somehow, we all know can exist. Keep it up Ms. Rowling.

These books are the best. Period. :) They are great for everyone of any age, no matter where you live or what you do. Why are they so good? Because they touch something in every one of us. There is just something about a boy who had his parents killed and who was bullied around at home that makes us want to read what happens. Also, these are great books that you can just sit in front of a fire place curled up in an armchair and read while sippin some hot chocolate. The books use very lively language, and there isnt anything confusing like in so many other great books, but that's probably because it's a childern's book. All the fantasy elements are amazing and the adventures Harry and his friends have are fun just to read about. Basically, it's an amazing piece of work. The 6th graders in middle school have it as required reading! Oh yea, and I read somewhere, but don't take my word for it that the 5th book's name is 'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix'. ok peace out, and go read this book if u already haven't. And if u have, go read it over and over and over and over.....
