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 »
