I just recently finished reading the first Harry Potter book, and I have read it many times. However, this was the first time I read a Harry Potter book in English. It was very interesting to see how the book is different in English from how it is in Norwegian, and to read the book exactly how it was originally written. I really don’t know what it is about Harry Potter that makes it so good, and that makes me like it so much. I just never get tired of reading it over again. I absolutely love J.K Rowling’s style of writing, and it’s when I read the book again I see how well it actually is written. How everything links up, and how small details affects the whole story in later books. Even things from the first book link up to and affect things in book 7! She is truly an amazing author!
I think most of you know what Harry Potter is about, but in case you don’t I will explain. The book is about Harry Potter, a boy who has lost both of his parents in what he thinks is a car accident. Therefore, he has to live with his aunt and uncle in the muggleworld, having no idea that the reason his parents died was because of the powerful and evil Lord Voldemort. The book is about Harry discovering that he is everything but normal, he is actually a wizard with a place reserved for him at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
I recommend all of those who yet have not read Harry Potter to read it. It is a book that appeal to both boys and girls and to all age groups. If you like the fantasy genre this definitely a book for you!
