5.0 out of 5 stars J.K.Rowling sets a new standard in literature..., 25 Sep 1999
By 
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) (Hardcover)
Hello world! As an educator with hundreds of "children's" books in my own personal library and a specialist certificate in children's literature I am amazed and excited to have read these books. Ms. Rowling has a gift for creating a world so detailed and real you're sure of its existance and want to be there. Her characters are colorful and full of life AND are not perfect or pristine or mawkish. The plots of Harry Potter's adventures are as complex and intense as modern writers such as Anne Rice and classic authors such as the Bronte sisters or, dare I say, Shakespeare, with humor like that of Twain. She writes and conveys powerful yet subtle concepts with a passion and ferver rarely found in literature even for adults. Her classic and timeless battle of good and evil will stand the test of time revealing these books to be longlasting in theme and idea. Ron, Harry and Hermione are true friends through good and bad times, through trouble (even if they caused the trouble...) and triumph. They probelm solve in an intellegent and thoughtful way not found in stories or the general media. Hermione, especially, shows that a girl can be smart, studious and clever without being a "beauty". A fine example for young girls everywhere. I look forward to reading the next four installments of these magnificiant works of "art literature". You do not merely "read" these literary treasures, you experience and feel them. Cherish and revel your time with these outstanding books and treasure them always.
