After much consideration, I finally decided to write my one and only review for the harry potter series. So consider this the gist of my reviews to the other books as well. It’s not because i can only say a few things about the series but because my thoughts are full praise for jk rowling and the many reasons why i absolutely loved the books, I can’t seem to say all of them. So I would elaborate them in simple terms:
1.) The world jk rowling created was not only magical but also incredible. It made me think “what if it really exists?.” The details were so intricate and well-thought that it will make you want to go to hogwarts and experience the joy of learning magic. And it was introduced as if wizards go to hogwarts for the sake of learning magic and not much for studying lessons. The houses, the quidditch, the spells were brilliant! I’m dying from envy because I wanted so bad to experience that(shallow, i know..) but these things only compounded to the interesting facts about the series.
2.) The chareacters are well-developed, you could truly see the differences of the magical trio (Harry,Ron,Hermione). Their discrepancies made them believable. Harry with his brave and sometimes brave-to-the-point-of-being-reckless personality but will surely move mountains for the ones he love.Ron, the best friend anyone would love to have bacause although he doesn’t have much in life he’ll support you through and through.And of course hermione with her unbelievable knowledge, there are times when i just stare in awe at how quickly she finds solution to tough situations. And together they make the perfect main characters that could weather any storm. After finishing the last book, anyone would probably admire snape. At first, he was despicable but as the story progresses you’ll realize that there’s something mysterious about his character that the author wanted the readers to figure out. When it was laid out for the last book, it was shocking that i didn’t even see that coming. I deeply sympathized for him. It would have been tiring if i mention the other characters because they’re all great. I love luna, tonks, sirius(I just wish he never died), fred, george, and Mrs. Weasley. You-know-who a.k.a. Voldemort was the best villain ever. His viciousness is so extreme that he was effectively introduced as the most feared wizard. His wickedness is enough to have covered seven books.
3.)The broad and complex plot gave meaning the word “unputdownable”. I remembered that good old days when all i do is sit comfortably and read the Harry potter for hours. There are so many things happening in the book that I found myself glued to my seat and anticipating the twist every once in a while. Sometimes, a smile crosses my face because man jk rowling has a sense of humor! I felt my heart soar because of the love story and break for the sad demise of the important characters, and I was completely riveted by the action-packed scenes especially during the end of every book. It’s amazing how each book are interconnected. Each has some integral points that, without reading them, you wouldn’t have appreciated the book beacause they are all so important to the overall story. I also like how the novels are all thick that i didn’t even realize i’ve read quite the entire book. It’s like saying to myself “wow! I’ve read a book this thick and i still want more!” How jk rowling managed to do that? i don’t know.All i know is that she is a very gifted writer who has an incredible imagination. I commend her skills and will forever admire her.
I would give the series infinite stars if that’s possible because i don’t think 5 stars would justify what i felt. After finishing it, i can say, with a big smile on my face, that it has been a great experience.It was priceless. All the intense scenes from the previous books are expertly summed up to the last one. It undeniably lived up to my expectations. Although i grieved(joking aside) and didn’t want the series to end, we know all stories must come to an end. So i’m looking forward to reading novels which could generate in me the same interest i had for the Harry potter. I also hope jk rowling will write a new wonderful story to devour and delve myself into. Cheers to all Harry Potter fans!!!!
