Top Ten Reasons Why Harry Potter is the Best Series of Books Ever

The Top Ten
1 Plot Is Well Made

Immense respect for how well-thought out the plot was. Mrs. Rowling was not making stuff up along the way-something I notice a lot of authors do-every books is interconnected and every detail is entwined...

This plot is easy to understand. Complex plots will not be easy to enjoy.

2 Magic and Fantasy

I like reading magic and fantasy books. Also this series is a great adventure.

Everyone needs a bit of magic in their lives! Well done J.K Rowling!

The amazing wizards and witches the magic school the wands and the magical background

3 Harry vs. Voldemort Action
4 Character Development

Harry Potter is full of wonderfully complex characters... flawed heroes, villains we can't help but feel sorry for and a few which cannot be defined as "heroes" or "villains". It's brilliant. We grew up with these people, lived with them, laughed with them, died with them. Thank you Jk Rowling, your books made me cry and there's very few authors who can say that.

I love how they became more complex as the books did and the readers matured

5 Violence

The violence is usually just magic different to muggle violence.
Anyway people love cartoon violence. Fans of South Park which has been your fave death of Kenny?
No one here can Crucio their enemy, you're not going to go down a street and see a Dementor. The acid pops they sell don't burn your tongue. You won't suddenly lose all the bones in one part of your body and need Skele-Gro Potion

6 Well Written

I hate people on the TopTens who have only seen the films.
1. Lavender Brown is an annoying character but she did not just appear out of nowhere to date Ron.
2. Luna Lovegood did not say keeps away the nargles or say that nargles steal her shoes.
She had a butterbeer cork necklace, mistletoe infested nargles and it was only at the end of the story that we find out that things she owned were stolen and it was other students, Luna annoyed Harry until they end when he wanted to help her lost items.
3. Characters on the list who didn't appear in the films.
4. Best movie quotes that are also in the books why can't it just be a list of movie quotes
Number 1. Always. Which is in both.
How about "Housekeeping, I'll come back later." or "Why are you wearing glasses? "

7 Fred and George Weasley Are Hilarious

Those identical twin brothers are one of my favorite characters. I like them a lot.

8 Gryffindor and Slytherin Rivalry
9 A Lot of Supposedly "Bad" Characters Turned Out Well at the End
10 Good Villain
The Contenders
11 The Main Character Isn't Perfect

I totally agree. Normally, the main character of most books is implicitly flawless. With brains, beauty, and an amazing personality, but in Harry Potter, Harry is quite a bad-tempered and impatient person, and sometimes he's rude to people just because he's facing many problems and under stress, which is kinda something which everyone does. I like the fact that Rowling makes Harry look a little like every other average growing guy. Harry Potter fan for life!

And Cursed Child Harry Potter is a stressed high class job man in his 30s with his family.

12 They Make You Feel Things

I have always liked Sirius Black and Albus Dumbledore, but honestly I did not realize I absolutely loved them, until they were killed. In the first six books, Severus Snape was a character I hated in the same way as he hated Harry. Yet, I could not help shedding tears for him when he said his last line while dying, "Always."

Honestly, Jo had me in floods of tears although I rarely cry at books,and let's not forget the funny parts... like Peeves' song after the Battle of Hogwarts!

13 It's Interesting
14 Interesting/Funny Lines, Quotes and Conversations
15 Complex Characters
16 It's Not Cliche

Like if Harry had married Hermione.

17 It Makes You Feel Like It's Real

Hogwarts is my home and it will always welcome you have as you turn the pages like many before.
You say football we say quidditch
You say chemistry we say potions
You say royal we saw half-blood prince
Harry Potter is not a book. It is life and I prize Harry Potter all above others. I am not guilty to say that.
Luna told me to be inquest
Ginny told me to be bold
Hermione told me books and cleverness are not everything
Neville told me to stand up to Voldemort
Harry taught me to be brave
Ron taught me money isn't everything
I could go on and on.
One day J.K Rowling will die and my children will not know why I tarted string and went to read some old boom named Harry Potter.
But I know all Potter heads like me will be doing the same.
Blowing of dust. Cleaning old wands...
Then Hogwarts will be one again.
Thank you J.K rowing for bringing magic into my life.

18 Darker Themes as the Series Goes On

The books matured as the readers matured. I love that. There were themes of death, love and war prominent in the last couple of books, as compared to the first few, which had themes around friendship and bravery.
