I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, with every ounce of my being, that the Harry Potter books are among some of the most well-developed, thoroughly planned, terrifically intriguing, thought-provoking and meaningful books I have ever read. Honestly.

J.K. Rowling, whom I respect and admire profusely, has poured meaning and absolute beauty into every single word of Harry’s journey, each and every individual character and the part they have to play - for good or ill. I thoroughly recommend these books, they have certainly taught me many life lessons as a young man (many of which were rekindled when I would reflect back on the books and my untainted memory of them), and they certainly have something very special to offer those who read them with patience.

That leads to my next point. For those who find joy in immersing themselves in fantasy and taking adventures, filled with both darkness and light, head on - you have found the right books. The characters are diverse, magical places jump onto the page rather suddenly, and authentic humor wriggles into the book when the time is right.
To most I would appear to be exaggerating in this particular book review (perhaps far too passionate?) and you would be right in saying so, but I just can’t help it. I’m truly grateful to have stumbled across these books (along with Lord of the Rings and several other classics) and they will continue to help me through life.

(PS - Tell Ron to watch out for Scabber’s nasty bite. Also, I would highly recommend keeping one or two Basilisk fangs in your pocket...)
