I know tons of people who have a strong pro or con opinion on the Harry Potter book series, and a few who don't have an opinion either way. But I have now borrowed these books from my brother, and I LOVE them! The first two are not that well written, IMO, but the overall storyline is excellent. Her writing steadily improves in the third book, and the fourth one, which I just finished, is outstanding. I now look forward to continue the series, which my brother tells me are just amazing. I am so glad I was finally able to get to read these books I've heard so many things about!
Good story + Good writing = Excellent book
