Harry Potter is a book about a boy who realizes he is a wizard. He is abused the first ten years of his life buy his aunt and uncle who hate magic and his cousin. He ends up going to a magical school called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He meets his two new best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. Together the three friends are in constant battle in each year they attend Hogwarts. A lot of the things that they do they should be expelled for but they are helping to save the wizarding world from an evil wizard named Lord Voldemort. (He is the reason Harry ended up at his aunt and uncles because Voldemort killed Harry's parents.)
Eventually Voldemort does succeed in coming back and for a year no one believes Harry that he is back and he is ridiculed along with his Headmaster Dumbledore who is telling Harry's story to the public. Eventually people realize Harry is right.
We won't know any more until the next two books come out. So far there is only five. Seven will be written.
Most people who hear of Harry Potter automatically assume that the book is awful. They don't even give the series a chance. There are also idiots who think the series who turn children into devil worshippers. News flash people: It is just a story, there are worse books out there.
Harry Potter sucks.
Have you read the books
No but I saw the movies and thought it was childish
Read the books it might change your opinion
No thanks I have better things to do with my life
Right because you can't seem to give the series a change just like other people.
Yup

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<
