Why read Harry Potter

This will not be a comparison to *hem*Lord of the Rings*hem*.

1. It’s fiction. Feels good to escape from reality once in a while.

2. You won’t even guess who dies in this one. You won’t even guess the plot twists.

3. You’ll love reading it on a train ride, bus ride or tube ride. Explanation here.

4. You”ll find out why there’s a Platform 9 and 3/4 sign in King’s Cross Station in London, even though you can only see Platforms 9 and 10.

5. Will bring back memories of school. Unless you would rather forget that period of your life. In which case, you should read it anyway.

6. Because “movie” is not a valid argument against reading it. Sorry.

7. Because 7 is a magic number. See what I did there?

Okay, there’s the friendship, the characters, the idea, the twist, the competition(s), the romance that doesn’t suffocate, the type of writing that leaves you wanting another chapter, and another…

I finished the second book in one day. Not many people know that.

  1. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but Harry Potter is an overrated books series just like many other titles that have been released in the past decade and a half. I’ve read too every single book upon its release, but the writing is average at most, the plot isn’t all that much and the plot twist are just a cheap shot at making it “memorable”. I usually like your posts, but even this list lacks in any kind of incentive to read the series. Also, I too have read the first 6 books in one sitting, nothing fabulous about that as well. I don’t mean to offend you or anything, it’s a nice series to read up until high-school, but that’s all to it.

    1. And now I wonder who you are. Not holding any grudges against you anyway, name or no name. Thanks for reading my posts.

Have your say!
