Harry; A History,
This review is from: Harry, A History: The True Story of a Boy Wizard, His Fans, and Life Inside the Harry Potter Phenomenon (Paperback)
This book was almost as eagerly awaited as one of JK Rowling's books about Harry. It is not a synopsis of Harry's story, but rather the story of how "Harry" came about. Of particular interest was how the Internet played a large part in the development of the entire phenomenon, which has never been seen before. It is also Melissa Anelli's story - a true fan who has devoted a large portion of her life to Harry. I enjoyed her anecdotes about her contacts with JK Rowling herself as well as characters who were totally and blindly anti Harry.
I enjoyed this book so much that I read the whole thing in less than 12 hours.
