Fan of the Week: Geoff – June 29, 2003

FOTW

GEOFF Age 20 – Colorado, USA Harry Potter is one of the greatest stories ever, it’s ability to cross just about any age rivals even exceeds Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Nothing like it even comes close. The stories are also written with just the right amount of suspense and excitement, and are NEVER predictable. I read book 5 in just about 7 hours, because I couldn’t stop turning the pages. Rowling has a spectacular ... Read More »

GEMMA Age 13 – Australia Hey all you Potter fans out there! My name is Gemma, I’m an Aussie and an absolutely crazy Harry Potter fan! Ask any of my friends; I’m obsessed to the core! I love everything about Harry Potter: The characters (except for Voldemort, Malfoy, Snape, Wormtail and the rest of the Slytherins), the plots, the adventure, the books, the movies, the actors who play them (how I would love to meet ...

FOTW

SHANI Age 14 – Vermont, USA   My love for Harry Potter is like no other…I LOVE HP. I think that many people like HP, then love HP, and then lose interest in HP, but some of us are a different story…(ME). I have loved Harry Potter for sooo long, and will continue to do so until…well, forever. JK Rowling is very talented and I could just read her material over and over and over ... Read More »

FOTW

KAT Age 17 – USA   I know not many people (other than those who are reading this) understand why so many adore Harry; and I’m not expecting most to do so. But allow me to say this….I love Harry Potter. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. My love for Harry Potter is just more than a love for the books, but for everything it stands for. Courage, loyalty, honesty, and just being who you are, ... Read More »

FOTW

JULIE Age 14 – Tennessee, USA   Well, my love for Harry Potter is truly…uh…unique. Not everyone has their entire room covered (completely) with posters, newspaper articles and pictures of every character from the movies and books under the sun. But I do. My friends call me “the Harry Potter geek”, and I don’t deny it. I know the books practically inside out, backwards and forwards…you get the point. My friends and family know what ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Kirbee – May 18, 2003

FOTW

KIRBEE Age 15 – Kansas, USA    used to be a Potter-hater. When Goblet of Fire came out, it was on the ten o’clock news, and they showed kids in line even then, waiting for it to be released. I laughed and called them morons and whatnot, and then I read the books, and my opinion completely changed. Now, I love the books, and as soon as I get off of work on June 21st, ... Read More »

FOTW

LIBBY Age 14 –  Queensland, Australia   t’s amazing how J.K Rowling can write books about teenagers and make them believable. Also, something that has inspired so many people to create songs, fanfictions, and artwork of their own has to be truly special. One of the great things about the Harry Potter books is that they have someone for everyone to relate to. There’s Ron for the likeable kids overshadowed by friends or family, Hermione ...

FOTW

JUNE Age 50 – New Brunswick, Canada     I love Harry Potter. Some people love chocolate. I love Harry and I’d choose him over chocolate any day! Even I can’t believe how much I love Harry. I feel a simple, pure pleasure reading or watching any of the stories. It’s an intense enjoyment. I become deeply involved in the adventure, tuning out the world around me. I think Harry is a wonderful character. I ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Gausia – March 2, 2003

FOTW

GAUSIA Age 19 – Ohio, USA How and when did you get in to Harry Potter? I got into Harry Potter my Freshman year in high school (about 4 years ago). My mom was reading the book to my younger brother and it seemed interesting, so I casually picked the book up and started reading, and I just couldn’t stop! I stayed up all night and finished the book and the next day ran to ... Read More »

Fan of the Week: Brittany – February 23, 2003

FOTW

BRITTANY Age 14 – Illinois, USA   Harry Potter is my past, present, and future. No, but really, I love Harry Potter. And no, I’m not just talking about the orphan wizarding boy, but his whole world and everything in it (even You-Know-Who). I think that it’s the pure sense of unreality and playfulness, as well as sorrow and suspense that draws people to Harry. You can open one of the books and be whisked ... Read More »
