What is it about Harry Potter that kids of all ages love? Why do you like Harry Potter? Maggie shares her reasons.....
By Maggie (16)
Okay guys, I have a confession to make, I am a Harry Potter fanatic.
I have read the books - numerous times, I have gone to the web site and explored it thoroughly, I have almost bought the calendar. What sets me out from other Harry fans, is that I'm 16 years old. I'm not the only one either, I borrowed most of the books from friends of mine, 16 and older.
Harry Potter isn't just for kids, people of all ages adore his adventures. J.K. Rowlings is amazing at relating the character to everyone. I get really caught up on the stories, can't put them down until I've finished it. She writes for the ages. Harry appeals to everyone because Rowlings has written a very compelling story.
I really appreciate the fact that Harry ages. In too many books, the series focuses on the kids at the same age, over and over and over again. Kids in books never seem to age. Harry ages, in each book, he was a year older. He is almost catching up to me. As he ages, the story ages also, getting more and more advanced.
I'm not embarrassed to say I like Harry Potter, I am anxiously awaiting his next book!
