Completely irrealistic, 9 July 2005
I find that reading this book was a complete waste of time, don't get me wrong I prefer fantasy over all other genres.
The major problem with this book is Harry himself. I just mean to say how is it possible that a kid(who suffers from constant abuse from his aunt, uncle and his cousin AND who doesn't have any friends) form such an open, heroic, kind and helpful personality?
I don't believe this book could ever remotly be considered the equal of such great books as "The Lord of the Rings", the "Legends" trilogy, or any book by Fritz Leiber or Jack Vance.
