Ultimate Reading Material,
This review is from: Harry Potter Box Set (contains Books 1-6) (Paperback)
JK Rowling is a genius. All six of these books are among the best works of fiction that I have ever read. I am currently reading "philosophers stone" for the umpteenth time. I simply cannot get enough of Harry Potter. Am looking forward to "Deathly Hallows". Cant wait to see what happens next. I buy the adult cover versions as they are much more subtle than the bright colours of the childrens. The covers also give representation to what the story is about. If anyone was new to Harry, I would definately say BUY ALL THE BOOKS. Once I start reading the series again, I have to continue right to the end of "Half Blood Prince". Each year of Harry Potter's life sees him facing new challenges and you are able to watch him grow as a person. I much prefer concurrent books as it makes for a much easier progression from one book to the next. Also, Harry is faced with typical teenage anxietys which allows you to relate to the character.
Hurry up JK Rowling. Bring on "Deathly Hallows" and put an end to the speculation and suspense.
