My desert island book series
on February 2, 2017
It's rare that a book series can appeal to children and adults alike in such a visceral sense, but Harry Potter is a series for all ages. The books have it all; humour, heartbreak, loss, love, adventure, ethics, philosophy, and of course... magic.
I read these after having seen all the films many years before, and wasn't sure I would enjoy reading the Harry Potter series since it's often hard to read a series after seeing a film or television adaptation. I'm SO glad I did - there is just so much more to each story tucked away in each book... whole plots left out of the films, whole characters missing. I can still watch the movies and enjoy them for what they are (a magical rendition of the world itself), but if you haven't read the books you're missing out on incredibly rich texture and indeed lots of information.
