The Top Ten
Captivating and a really brilliant piece of literature. An end to the greatest book series ever.
This is the only piece of fiction that has ever brought me to tears (the reason which I will not spoil, but those who read it should know). Truly amazing. - imataco123
It made me laugh. It made me cry. It is the best book I have ever read and it will probably remain my favorite for the rest of my life. It's a simply brilliant piece of literature. All loose ends are tied up, some not how we would want, and there are just so many amazing elements about this story. Furthermore, it is much different than the rest of the books. It's a fight for survival. I will ALWAYS love this book. (See what I did there? )
I love the Harry Potter books it opens up a whole new world and this book is intense and emotional.V 66 Comments
I've just finished this book. So far I've only read the 3, but this one surpasses the other two by a substantial amount. It gives background knowledge that the other two lacked. It gives lots of plot twists keeping you at the edge of your seat. It gives shocking secrets and moments where you can't help but gasp at. And it also manages to give us an ending that leaves us both mystified and eager to read the next book. So well done how the twisty plot all comes together in the end. Just brilliant.
It is still that book that makes you feel all nostalgic when you read it again after finishing the next few books (or whole series). It still has an era of mystery and lots of plot in it, and it also reveals lots of secrets for the future. Cleverly written. They are still young, but no starters like in the first book. Great.
Really good. This one had plot twists a lot more than the first 2. Hermione has a secret, Lupin has a weird schedule, everyone telling Harry that he ought to get revenge on Sirius Black. WARNING SPOILER ALERTS: and then you find out the most unexpected of these odd things: Hermione has a time turner, Lupin is a werewolf, and Sirius is Harry's godfather.
It was the best book because it introduced the one of the two best characters in the series Lupin and Sirius. We also get a flashback of the day Harry's parents died and who was responsible for their deathV 50 Comments
This one is where it really starts to come together. The detail and revelations from this book exceed any in the rest of the series, and the final duel definitely grabs the reader's attention, something I can't really say for the "Deathly Hallows," which was basically a repeat of this, except shorter and not as believable for some reason. It doesn't drop you in a random scene in the lead. - AlGalaxy
This is the book where everything changes. It is also the first of the darker and much more complex books. The whole plot is very interesting and all the new characters are great. Plus, the graveyard scene where Voldemort returns to full power is emotional and foreshadows what is to come for Harry and his friends.
This is the start of a harry potter era. The other 3 were the warm up act for this one, this is where Voldemort comes back, this is where somebody dies for the first time, this is where Harry faces off with full strength voldemort. This book no doubt laid the foundation for the next 3, and the climax was unpredictable and had me hanging on every word (to be fair though, all the hp books do that) HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE FOR THE WIN! - ralphie

Until the sixth book came out, we had Lord Voldemort, a villain with no depth what so ever. We had a glimpse of his motivations in one of the final chapters of Order of the Phoenix, (which is, in my opinion the best chapter of the whole saga, where Harry destroys the office of Dumbledore because Sirius died) but that's it. We have no idea of how Tom Riddle became evil, nor how he resurrected. After Half-Blood Prince, a lot of things change. We learn about the Gaunts, on how soulless Tom is to kill is father and grandparents and blame it on Morfin, his uncle. We learn that Tom was a very proud person, who clung to everything that made him special, and threw away everything that made him normal. We learn about the Horcruxes, not that Dumbledore didn't know about them already, but we learn that there are six (later we find out that there are 7). About Snape: it's true that Snape has it's biggest twist in Deathly Hallows, but we can't ignore that it wasn't his first one; in fact, in ...more
Though dark and sad, the sixth book in the Harry Potter series is both action packed and informative. As Harry learns about Voldemort's past with Dumbledore, it becomes clear why the Dark Lord was so feared during his first years in power. The book focuses on finding Voldemort's weaknesses via memories and old friends, and eventually, using them against him. Relationships form between the characters and political, psychological and emotional traits come into focus, Riddled with suspense, love and hatred, the Half Blood Prince is one of J.K Rowling's best novels, having plenty of mystery, action and quality literature.
Definitely, all that. Draco's showing fear. Hermione realizing her love for ron, Lavander such a whore, Harry with his moments, and of course, the Ginny and Harry kiss! Best scene ever.
and we can't forget about Dumbledore's death and Riddle's past
Surprised that this isn't the best book. this is the only book, which includes both fun and dark(seriousness)ness mixed with information about riddle's past with some of the shocking deaths ever. honestly dumbledores death was far worse and had great impact compared to snape's death.V 34 Comments
If I listed my favorite Harry Potter books worst to best, it would go from shortest to longest. Although this may take the longest to read, it becomes the most interactive to read. I remember reading the book for the first time and feeling the tensity of the court case, the relief in going back to Hogwarts, the hatred for Snape, Malloy, and especially Umbridge, and the mourning over a certain characters demise. The first one may have been the original. The second may have been a darker and better version of the first. The third may have been the crowd-pleaser. The fourth May have been one that set the tone for the rest of the series. The sixth may have showcase the best sense of dread. The seventh may have made me want to read the series over again, but in my opinion, the best Harry Potter book is without a doubt The Order of the Phoenix.
The first time I read it, I hated it, the second time, I loved it. It is a complete change from the previous books.
The lighthearted, childlike feel is gone and is replaced with very dark concepts of terrorism, prejudice and insanity. Some may not like the "new" Harry, but the whole change in tone adds to the intensity. When you reread it, you actually sympathize with Harry to the full extent because you actually know why he is acting with such absurd behavior. It is another way to show character growth because as you read on, the characters are growing up and moving on from childhood. You see Harry in a new light when he is not the hero anymore with controversy over the death of Cedric, no one believing him about Voldemort, and the Ministry putting him in a bad light when they use to be on his side.
Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix is a masterpiece. Most people hate on it because of Harry's attitude change but I liked it. He was going through a lot of stress; the whole Wizarding England accusing him of lying, having witnessed a friend die and thinking it's all his fault, seeing through the Dark Lord's eyes when be sleeps (gee wonder why he's so cranky! 11! ) And on top of all that, Umbridge. Also they took Quidditch away from him, and Hogwarts, the only place he calls home is being taken over by a mad dictator. Not forgetting he was 15 years old. Many teens resort to substances when facing less severe problems. This book showed how strong he is as a person and it truly made me respect him.

This is the only book in the series I've read so far and I LOVED IT SO MUCH! I would never want to read anything but I couldn't put this book down! I got hooked in reading because of this book! I thought it was honestly going to be a peice of nerdy wizzarding garb but it's definitely not. It's for anyone that wants a book that will keep them on the edge of their seat and just will not be able to put it down. Because of this book I will read the whole rest of the series! Awesome book I am sure to read again!
Where the magic all begins: humour, being introduced to the characters and an appropriate conclusion. Although I confess I prefer the name 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone'.
I'd say this is the best book in the series. It's where Harry's adventure starts as a wizard. To be quite honest, I think book one is the best in all series.
What number six? This is easily the best book of all time - A-GuyV 25 Comments
I really liked the mystery for this one, and where it was going with all of the 'seemingly repetitive places' J.K. wanted you to notice something so you could predict the solution.
I love this one so much! The mystery is so much more entertaining than all the other ones, especially the last one. I love the feeling of the first four so much more than the last three.
A treasure trove for manifesting glory and imagination, a flawless classic and memorable childhood novel. Love it.
First book in the series that I read and still my favourite. The mystery is well constructed and, in my opinion, makes the most enjoyable plot. There is interesting developement of the Wizarding World - more details and new concepts are revealed, but they seem logical rather than forced (compared to further books, in which JKR introduced whatever she needed at the moment out of convenience) Many important and cool characters are introduced, like Arthur Weasley, Lucius Malfoy, Dobby, Moaning Myrtle, Lockhart.
Also, it's the last book in the series that makes sense on its own and can be read as a standalone novel, which is good if you want to enjoy single story. While "PoA" is also a good one (probably my second favourite), it leaves an open ending, and I think the series went downhill starting from "GoF", so when I re-read the books, I mostly stick to the first two.
They are making 3 films about this book/story - mneilan
I really need to get this-my friend showed it to me
I like this one. Except then I had dreams about being eaten by Lethifolds.
love it!V 2 Comments
Dumbledore's comentary is superb
Very good and interesting. makes me go to sleep very fast
It's got Dęãth in it!,Uhhh
Man, this book was great. And this is coming from an American person who isn't into sports- I know, does that even exist? Of course, the Harry 'Potter books surpasses all others in tenderness and just wholesome story-telling, I want to see this one higher. So there. ; P
The other Harry Potter books are a lot better than this one. I just feel bad how so little people voted for it. I voted for it. Deal with it :P
I loved it
They took the alliteration out of the name! What the heck! Good story though.
The perfect beginning to a truly magical series
THIS IS THE SAME AS THE AMERICAN VERSION!
