Harry finally feels like a normal kid But even within the Wizarding community he is special He is the boy who lived the only person to have ever survived a killing curse inflicted by the evil Lord Voldemort who launched a brutal takeover of the Wizarding world only to vanish after failing to kill HarryThough Harry's first year at Hogwarts is the best of his life not everything is perfect There is a dangerous secret object hidden One of my first jobs was at a bookstore When I was a kid my Mom would take me to the mall and I would spend tons of time hanging out at Waldenbooks who here remembers Waldenbooks? Right when I became legally old enough to work I went in and submitted my application and a few weeks later I was selling literature to the massesWhy do I tell you this story on this review you ask? Well at the time young adultteen literature consisted mainly of RL Stein Christopher Pike Beverly Cleary Judy Blume and a few other classic Newberry Award winners but certainly we did not have a YA section to the extent you see it todayTowards the end of my tenure at Waldenbooks as Oprah's book club was hitting its stride and Men Are From Mars Women Are From Venus was in its bazzilionth week on the New York Times best seller list a book display arrived featuring a buzzy new title about a certain boy wizard I remember the display at the front of the store and selling a few copies but I didn't realize what it would becomeA few years later early 2000s I had kinda gotten out of the loop on what was big in books I had just finished college which had taken up most of my free reading time A friend of mine named Bronco yup real name not a nickname who also was the Best Man at my wedding had a copy of this book on his coffee table Holy cow Here is that same book we were selling at Waldenbooks about 5 years before what was he doing with it?Well he said it was good so I borrowed it I uickly plowed through the first 4 books and then got the pleasure of joining the world in waiting for the release of Order of the Phoenix And I noticed when I went to the bookstore the YA section and selection was not so small any I truly believe it was Harry Potter that opened the door to get young adults and even adults of course reading and authors interested in writing for that genre

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's StoneHarry Potter's life is miserable His parents are dead and he's stuck with his heartless relatives who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself he's a wizard A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and WizardryAfter a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight However this is stupid as the two are incomparable Honestly its not even worth discussing Its not just that Twilight doesn't come close it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works Its peerless To uote Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction It ain't the same fuckin' ballpark it ain't the same league it ain't even the same fuckin' sport There was a day when I thought I needed to defend Harry Potter in the midst of the now dead Twilight craze and you can see that below in what was my original review It is a testament to the power of this series that while various other franchises Twilight Hunger Games have surged into popularity and then faded Harry Potter remains unwaveringly strong after nineteen years It is clear readers hold just as much admiration for these books as they always have Time has not dimmed thatI will one day write an essay about what these books mean to me Eternal this is the one that started it all Original review circa 2010 A note in regard to the on going Potter vs Twilight debate Go ahed tell me Twilight is better Tell me that James is scarier than Voldemort That the Cullens are a better family than the Weasly's That Edward is cooler than Harry and Bella is smarter than Hermione Tell me that Stephenie Meyer is talented than JK Rowling Go ahead I dare you Those who think the topic of Harry Potter or Twilight is worth debating and arguing over are utterly stupid uite frankly this book is amazing
