-The neutral side-

A series of books. Currently 6 books, with the newest being titled: "Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince." The premise is that wizards and witches (and mythical creatures) exist, but are hidden from normal society. Centres around the boy for which the series is named, and his enterprises at a wizarding school.

-The Good Side-

This series is highly inventive, and just what the fantasy genre has needed to dig itself out of a slight rut it's been in for a decade or so. The author, (J.K. Rowling,) has been able to let Harry grow with his readers, with the first book being whimsical and light-hearted, and each succeeding novel become darker and darker, or more mature, whatever one's particular viewpoint is. Another talent that Rowling posesses is the ability to still keep an air of innocence and that same whimsy of the 1st book, with the darker, outer layer of her more recent works.

-The Bad side-

As with many series, there is one group who can make a mockery of said series. One group who always tarnishes the goodstanding and innocence of said series. In this case, this group may be divided into two distinct, but similar sub-species.

The Fangirl. - This is the keening, 15-year-old who partners the two amle protagnoists into gay love-affairs. This wouldn't be so bad, not bad at all, (in my opinion, I've got nothing against homosexuals,) if these pairings weren't of them pouding eachother's asses. The ages of these two people are 16. Or 15, as the new book (as of this post's publishing,) has been out for less than two weeks. They also write the fan-fiction where they themselves for some reason or another are a student at the Wizardry academy, and are somehow romantically entwined with the main character. Through these people, I have lost all faith in mankind.

The wapanese fangirl - Ah, this one. Perhaps worse than the former, this sub-species of fan-girl uses all the homoerotic pairings of their more common cousin, but use the annoying catch-phrases of "yaoi" and "kawaii". As you're more than likely sure, this sub-species jointly connects the wapanese and the fangirls, as obviously stated in the aboe heading. Not only do these ones write fan-fictions, but they also indulge in the homoeroticism of said fiction in comic or manga style. Someone's got a little trouble telling fantasy from reality...

-My Opinion-

Feel free to skip over this part.

No matter how much the "Bad Side" makes it sound, I'm not some christian, white-bread soccer mom out to get gays and people who like anime. I'm just some guy who got fed up..

Anyway. What do I think of the series? If you liked the Lord of The Rings, go for it. The two are distinct, but they'll warm your heart in the same way. Although, again, this is personal opinion, I enjoyed LOTR better than I have enjoyed reading thsi series, but it was a close match.

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??

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<
