I have read both the books and some of the movies. They're great, don't get me wrong, but wizards and witches and all of that shit aren't my thing. My friend refers to Harry Potter as 'Harry Pot-Smoker', and as that makes me laugh >cough< a lot >cough<, I don't believe a book such as this deserves to be called terrible.
A great book seriesharry potter, but it's not up my alley.

The little boy who always knew he was different from the others and had big dreams of moving out from his abusinve uncles' hous and seeing the world! And all his dreams come true when and a half giant half human tells him hes a wizard. Also see cinderella because the only difference between this and that, is a kiss.

You can replace adjectives that mean the same as: fugly, ugly, fucked, disaster, tornado, in bed, ron weasly, with Harry Potter.

**NOT DEFINITION** Of course, this definition is very true, but it is so ancient that barely anyone uses it anymore, except maybe for a few who remember it by their ancestors passing it down to them from generation to generation.

An apparently very griping character to most of those who read the series of very successful novels he is written in. The series is very popular among younger readers and has been very beneficial in getting younger people to read. However, Harry Potter has yet to prove itself as a good "gateway book" meaning most younger audiences who pick up the series do not continue to read novels (or other media) after completing all 7 novels.

A survey was done in 2008 by the English department of UC Berkley finding that 9 out of 10 children (between the ages of 12 and 17) who finished reading the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, go on to read the next six, but out of those 9 only 2 continue to read on an extra-curricular level. Whether this information is meaningful or not is up to you.
I have only read bits and pieces of the Harry Potter series and from what I gathered the novels are not bad. Harry Potter readers are sort of a cult following, but many have seen the movies and trust me, it is the movies that inspire many people to "hate on" Harry Potter. However many Potter readers have told me that they're very satisfied with the movies and that they follow the book very closely (for the most part except maybe the 6th installment which deviated from the book more than usual). In my opinion if the movies do follow the books as closely as people tell me then to me the books would be very unfulfilling.

The best books in the whole world. I am one of the most obsessed fans out there and I can tell you this book is nothing like Lord of the Rings! They have two completely different plots.

Twi-hards complain Harry Potter has no love. The central theme is love! Not the teenage love, which isn't real but the kind of sacrificing yourself to create a better world for your kid, or protecting someone, but there is also the romantic type such as the complex relationship between Ron and Hermione.

People who dis the books haven't even read them.

Harry Potter has strong female characters and realistic characters.

Despite being magical, you can actually relate to these charaters because they have both good and bad sides, and the complexity of Snape is more interesting, intense, and developed, than many book series all together.
Harry Potter is such an awesome book!
