Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a

broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has

never worn a cloak of invisibility.

All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their

abominable son, Dudley--a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the

Did you ever know that J.K Rowling was really poor before she ever wrote Harry Potter?

Well, she was. J.K Rowling's writing is amazing-it has the element of suspense, feeling, and

even a bit of romance in some of her sequels that I advise you should read. People have

alot of different opinions about her book-but mostly everyone likes it. It depends on whether

you're that type of genre reader. Normally I'd say that there's atleast one flaw in every

book, but I can't find one here. J.K Rowling adds in everything that needs to be added;

details, emotions, descriptions, and more details. Harry Potter is famous because it has

everything a book (and series) should have.
