Maame has chosen to write about the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling, and here is the unedited guest post.

WHY EVERYONE LOVES THE LEGENDARY HARRY POTTER SERIES.

The Harry Potter series is a very iconic fantasy novel. It was set in London, UK and showcases the stages of maturity Harry Potter had to go through to finally accomplish his destiny. While living with his wicked uncle and aunt, he considers himself as nonexistent and unimportant. An unlikely visit from a man who claims Harry had magical powers unlike his plain muggle relatives and was much more important and famous in the magical world than he could imagine, toppled his life in a good and envious way.

This award winning novel was written by the author, film producer, television producer, screenwriter, and philanthropist,Joanne Kathleen Rowling, popularly known as J.K Rowling.

WHY DO WE ALL LOVE IT?

• THE BOOK IS EASY TO READ AND UNDERSTAND: All of us here can concede to the undeniable fact that, when you open the book, what keeps us flipping is how easy it is to combine the words into a meaningful sentence. Not every writer is able to create this easy and smooth effect for readers.

• IT HAS AN AMAZING PLOT: As you continue to rampage through the book, the more alluring it becomes. It feels almost like an invisible hand is keeping your mind and body totally submerged between the sheets, and you willing give in. That is the power of a marvellous plot.

•THE WRITER’S STORYTELLING STYLE: When a captivating plot is coupled with an equally magnetic Storytelling style, a masterpiece like This is bound to emerge. J.K ROWLING’S style is simple and straightforward but is still years apart from other writers. She is able to keep readers glued with every word that is printed on the pages.

•THE CHARACTERS WERE SO RELATABLE: Readers are bound to feel a certain type of affection for characters they can relate to and compare themselves with. You’ll expect people to feel emotionally, physically and mentally detached from the characters in this novel. That is not the case at all. In fact, everyone was equally represented in this Novel and not in the cocky cliche way.

Many readers are able to relate with Harry despite him having magical powers because apart from that, he moods, emotions and behaviours were totally Muggul-ish. He wore glasses, many other books he would be the nerdy loser who was always a target for bullying, but Rowling change that dynamic.

•THIS BOOK EDIFIED IMPORTANT AND VALUABLE LIFE LESSONS: This book depicted the rule heart and soul of humans, not falling short of illuminating how sagacious the author is.

Lessons we all learnt from them.
In the years before the publication of this work of art, it would have been totally awkward for me to admit that acquired most of my life lessons from witches and wizards, non the less a teenage wizard and his counterparts. All this is to say that, she made her readers understand that thier greatest advice could come from someone or somewhere utterly preposterous, like a child or an enemy.

•HARRY POTTER MADE ME FILL LIKE MAGIC: At one point in time we all started doubting if we were really muggles and almost bawled our eyes out when we realised No Dumbledore or Hagrid was ever coming to give is the news we’ve been praying for.

This is exactly why people like it, It gave them the power to be, even if it is all pretense, their own magical character fighting their own Voldemort. It gave the weak strength, it toughened he fragile and pieced together the broken. It helped people to escape from their troubling reality where they are bound and forced to submit to an ailment, into a fantasy land where they are heroes.

With the carefully collected data shown above, we can all agree to disagree that The harry Potter franchise is a worldwide classic and the brilliant J.K Rowling has rightfully earned her seat in the Great Hall of fame.

FOR ME, HARRY POTTER WAS DEEPER THAN A STORY, HE WAS MORE THAN A CHARACTER AND CLOSER THAN MY CLOSEST FRIEND .

      1. Well, thank you so much. I am so happy to be close to the one thing I have always loved. This book is childish but it brings back memories of the sweet times. The times when I was in Africa, the times when my grandfather was alive…😞

  1. I was teaching middle school when these came out. I often read whatever books the kids were enjoying to discuss parts with them. I fell in love with them and waited in line at night when a new one was to arrive at the bookstore. I have read them all and loved them. Sadly, I cannot get my teenaged grand kids to even take a look.

    1. I used to work with someone in the police in London who did the same. He queued for hours to buy a copy of the Half Blood Prince when it was released. And he was 46. He constantly badgered me about reading them, and got irritated when I said I didn’t read about wizards and schoolboys. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I’m a Harry Potter holdout. I was never interested in reading J.K. Rowling’s books. I did go to the first film, but fell asleep in the middle of it.
    I’m not against works of fantasy, however. I’ve read J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, and have the LOTR extended editions on DVD.

  3. When Harry Potter was all the rage, my then teen-aged grandson was living with us. He read the book after school, and I read it when he went to bed. Surprisingly, he got a great deal of the deeper meanings in the book as outlined in this bolg–we talked about it almost every day for ten days. Warmest regards, Theo
