Reader's Thoughts

Nicole

OK...probably almost pointless to put a review of the Harry Potter books out here...but nonetheless.If you haven't read these books yet, you should. I would say these are going to be one of the biggest pop culture icons of this part of the century. What Star Wars was to those of us growing up in the 80s - Harry Potter is to those growing up in the 2000s.The books are quite cleverly written. The writing is surprisingly good, with lots of little puns within professor names and such. They're long - but very fast reads. The books do get a bit darker as the series moves along...but you'll be so hooked after the first book you won't be able to put them down.

J.K Rowling is a genius. I am reading #6 at the moment and #7 is waiting in line... Every single book in the serious has been a masterpiece. Wow, what an imagination - she has created an entire new world - like the 2000's version of star wars.

Michelle

She is the best fantasy author that I have ever read. I love this world of magic. It made me believe that small things can conquer big. A lot of symbolism of real life.

Rebecca

These books are the original british publications, and i would recommend that everyone read these. There are slight differences in dialect and lingo (they "Americanized" the versions you buy stateside); i think these make a huge difference in your reading experience. for one, it is actually how J.K. Rowling wrote the books...for another, it's more realistic British English. So if there is any way for you to get your hands on these versions, i say go for it!in addition, this series is fantastic. One of the few sets of books that actually make me lose all sense of time while reading. They are easier to read than the Lord of the Rings because they are not so uniformly dark and serious, however, the later books do get darker in content.

Natasha

Harry Potter was one of those "there is no way I'd like these books. But once I finally caved, I was hooked. Amazing children's book, that I was I had back when I was 13-14 years old.

Alita

I don't have this particular set, but I do have the individual titles in it. I just figured this was more efficient than listing each one separately. Like the other 2.3 billion people who also love Harry Potter, I am eagerly waiting for the Deathly Hallows (pre-ordered from Amazon, tee-hee).

Emily

I've read all of the Potter books. In the first three, Harry was great then, he became a rude, hormonal teenager. But, everyone should read at least one of them (the first is the best).

Heidi Hodges

This series is amazing. I would really recommend them to anyone. The plots are interesting and never predictable, the characters well-developed and they are all page-turners. I will be sad when the series is over!

I read all six books in two or three weeks. . . my farewell to unemployment, one might say. Once you read one of them, you never need to read it again and you can just forget about it and move on to the next one. They get more interesting the further along you go. I liked the sixth one the most. . . but once the seventh one comes out I'll probably like that one the most.

Terese

I've read all the H.P. books. As I mentioned before, I do not think these are the best written books. However, my children love the stories, and I do think the stories and characters are compelling. I have read all of the books out loud to my children.

Malea M

I resisted the Harry Potter series for so long, thinking that they were juvenile and/or science fiction. A friend's daughter told me I should try one -read the first and didn't stop until I read them all, eagerly awaiting the 7th. Who will die in this one?

Bridget

Come on, it's Harry Potter! I don't think anyone needs a reccomendation. Although, for those that have not read it and plan on having children you are doing your children a disservice by not educating them on all things H Pot.

Rowan

No I don't have the set. this was the best way i could see encompassing all of them. I really enjoy this series (book 7 is a great way to end things). I began reading the books when living in England. i love the imagination, the storyline and the detail in each book. the plot is both sophisticated and simple, funny and sad. I like that she writes about good & evil, loyalty, friendship, betrayal, prejudice and magic. Most of all, these books are fun and I'll ready them when I need to escape.I won't build them up to be more than they are; J.K. Rowling had a good idea, fleshed it out and made it real while the whole time you never doubt that this is fantasy.

Netangel

I have read each of these books and can't wait till the last one. i have re-read 4-6 and enjoyed it the second time. I usually tell most people they can skip 1 & 2 and just read 3 up. That's around where the movies no longer cover what you need. I think these are great books. Reading them as an adult you can see how they grown in their maturity level for kids. What a great idea. I can't wait until my neice and nephew are old enough to read them.

Zoe

Well, what can I say, it's Harry Potter! If ever you needed to read something to escape this would be a good series. The story is not so in depth as many of the great adult books meaning they are easy to read. I love books set in England even if it is fantasy. I related to the boarding school element and well, I plan to re-read these sometime.
