The review --
The best way to review this story is by doing it as a whole. The author grabs you from the beginning and builds suspense and momentum through the final lines. I consider it an epic work in literature and especially the area of Fantasy. I watched the films first and decided this summer to finally read the books. I wanted to find out how close the films were to the books.
The books were set in England of modern times. A lad discovers that he's a famous wizard on his birthday and the journey towards the final confrontation begins. The book is beautifully written and is filled with strong imagines. It's a series filled with 5 star books. There isn't a weak book among the seven.
The editing in the books are exceptional and the editor(s) should be commended for their work. The films were great and I enjoyed each of them, but the books are at least fifty times better. The only way a film could do justice to the book would be four hour films, and that would turn people off. The final conflict between the Dark Lord and Harry was exceptional in the book. I love each and every page of all seven books. I know some people will be turned off by it being a book about witches, but sometimes you just need to enjoy a good book for it's worth. Here is one of those book series. It's really worth the read folks!
The ending by now is known by most people, but unless you read the books then you'll never know the real story. Enjoy!!!"
