These books are already Tolkien style classics,
This review is from: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) (Hardcover)
How can someone like me at age 53 be engrossed in a childrens book. Why? Because the Harry Potter series are classics. Brilliantly written in a style the evokes all the senses of the imaginative reader. This is not merely a childrens story, it is a metaphor for all the challenges of life that face a reader of any age. Mystery, hatred, friendship, trust, misplaced trust, bigotry and ambition, and probably as Harry gets older, lets hope love! I often use Kings Cross Station myself. It will never seem the same to me again.
