    So, who’s Harry Potter?

    Haven’t read one past the second.

    Thoroughly un-original, in the way of someone who doesn’t know what already exists in a genre and re-invents the wheel…

    …but isn’t sure how many corners it should have.

    Overly cutesy, underly plotted.

    Why bother even reading the first?

    It was fun at the time but now I have four large volumes taking up space on my shelves that I never read.

    Hey they were not all bad and the reason I bought the first was it was Banned they way I see it if a book is banded by some group it can’t be all bad. This means twilight is not all bad

    Avoided the hoopla for about 5 years, with appropriate patrician disdain. Finally decided to read the first one, just to see what all the fuss was about. Death to muggles.

    Love ‘em all (after resisting them for a while), have reread all of them, a few select ones multiple times. It amuses me to see people pretend to literary analysis to say “I don’t like these books.” Epic fantasy follows a classic plot known to some as the monomyth; it’s not un-original, it is tapping a core human story. It worked for Tolkien, George Lucas, several Gospels and Beowulf, why not Rowling? Rowling has numerous gifts as an author, including enormous bravery, character creation, humor, and storytelling, which makes these books well worth reading, and she improves on her early inelegancies as she goes. That doesn’t mean everyone will like them. But don’t pretend they are bad books, because they aren’t.

    I enjoyed the books, they’re well written- Rowling knows how to turn a phrase and she’s inventive enough. The later books bog down a bit with some massive infodumps but that’s because she’s got a fairly full plotload going. She’s not the stylist that Phillip Pullman is, but who’d expect that.

    You know what they say Burg, better a muggle than an uggle!

    Speaking as one who has read and re-read LOTR some six times over the years, I found the Potter books charming and inventive. Ms. Rowling deserves full marks for creating a new world and adding new words to the language. As a writer myself, I can say these are things we all aspire to, but few of us have the ability to create them.

    Harry Potter was a minor book until it was condemned for promoting evil witchcraft and sorcery.

    Harry Potter’s better written than another recent favourite, Dan Brown, but it isn’t near the level of Wind in the Willows or Peter Pan.

    Kung Fu Monkey (on blogspot) has some very apt words to say about those who read and re-read LOTR. Which is, again, much better than Potter.

    People who give a flying bleeep (sic) about what other people think of their taste in reading materials probably shouldn’t admit to reading anything at all.. because SOMEONE is bound to think it silly, tacky and a waste of time. This is probably true for any book written since “The Tale of Sinuhe” or “Genji Monogatari”.
