An orphaned boy with a lightning-bolt shaped scar on his right temple. After surviving the Killing Curse cast by Lord Voldemort, Harry was placed in the care of the Dursleys, his aunt, uncle, and cousin, who do not tell Harry about his magical abilities. On his eleventh birthday, Harry learns he's a wizard and is sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the greatest magical school in Britain. There, he meets Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, as well as a host of other characters, and begins his life's journey.

Harry Potter, the series, was written by JK Rowling. Though many people say the plot is unoriginal, JK's story of Harry is well-written, and not as one-dimensional as many people express it to be.

Harry Potter, or abbreviated as HP, was almost ruined by the cast of directors who decided to make the highly succcessful books a movie series. Not only stripping the movies of all the good parts, messing up the dialogue, and having flat, unconvincing actors, the movie-makers seem to have made the movies only for the profit that the millions of avid HP fans would give them. Needless to say, the movies were a complete letdown.
Idiot Fangirl: OmG lYK DaN iShh sOOOOOOOO HaWWWttt!!!!!111111oneoneone... I LoVEEEE HARy Pott3R!!!!!!

Hater: like god harry potter sucks, anyone who likes it is sooo stupid.

Me: *bangs head* for God's sake, if you hate it so much, don't see or read it. If you love Daniel Radcliffe, go make a fansite or something. Leave the hardcore book fans alone. x_X;

A series of books that most people haven't read but don't hesitate to critcize, anyways. Often mistaken as books that are "just for kids", when the truth is they curse more than my older brother, are dark and depressing, but at the same time funny and lighthearted.
Dude: Harry Potter's gay.
Friend: Is that supposed to be an INSULT?!?!?!

Best book series and movie series ever!
J.K. Rowling is a genius for creating the story and I personally would like to thank her for bringing joy to my life with the books and movies.
Loser: You're going to pay $30 for a stupid book??
Healthy Obsessed Me: Thats funny, I thought you just called my pride and joy stupid. Ya know what else is funny? My foot in your ass!

A seven-book series by author J.K Rowling about 'The Boy Who Lived'. HP is well-written and shouldn't be compared to Lord of the Rings being they are not even in the same category.
The fifth and latest Harry Potter book, Order of the Phoenix, sold over 5 million copies the day it came out.

A series of books that are highly criticized by illiterate and utterly STUPID morons. No, Harry Potter is not a rip-off of LOTR. I'm reading LOTR now and they are different books.
Wow. I didn't know that stupidity exsisted at the level of the people who diss the books.

Actually, a really good series of books by J.K. Rowling.
Although Lord of the Rings is entirely original, and very good, it's no good for young kids because of the slower-moving plot.
Harry Potter is better for younger people.

The five books out now are:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

There are two more books left to come.
My cousin is obsessed with Harry Potter, she actually makes out with his picture >gag<
