Okay, I'm a 23 year old engaged man, and I just read the Harry Potter books 1-4.
My Fiance had to read the first one for a young adult literature class she took, she loved it, and read the next three before recommending them to me.
These books are fantastic! Brilliant storytelling, and some fun characters.
Recommended reading for anyone with children, or without. I haven't read Lord of the Rings, so I don't have any base for comparison, but I have a feeling when she finishes all 7 books, the series will be held up as a standard for fantasy literature for years to come.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
