I recently finished reading Harry Potter. JK Rowling has an absolutely wonderful way of expressing the thoughts of the Harry Potter world, and the whole system works quite wonderfully.
Now, I did not read Harry Potter and instantly become a die-hard fan. Although Harry Potter was a well written series, something in me does not want to be a potterhead. (Don’t ask why they are called that. I don’t know!)
I loved how well JK Rowling writes, and it’s the kind of book I read. (You know, fantasy/magical stuff.) I didn’t like some parts, but I don’t want to spoil it for other readers who haven’t read it yet, so I won’t say much.
Overall I think it’s a great read, even if you aren’t looking to be transformed into potterheads overnight!
