An excellently written series of seven books from the author J.K. Rowling, following the journey of Harry Potter and his two best friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Most often criticized by people who consider them "childish". However, these books contain substance (unlike many other fantasy novels for children and teens. *cough* Twilight *cough*) and they have an excellent plot that keeps the readers entertained and enthralled. This series should be considered the most influential series to hit bookshelves in the past 20 years.
"Harry Potter has not only opened out minds to the true value of kindness, it has taught us that friendship and love will always prevail"
