Harry Potter's life is miserable His parents are dead and he's stuck with his heartless relatives who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself he's a wizard A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and WizardryAfter a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers My original review was a comparison of sorts between Harry Potter and Twilight However this is stupid as the two are incomparable Honestly its not even worth discussing Its not just that Twilight doesn't come close it is the fact that Harry Potter transcends other similar works Its peerless To uote Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction It ain't the same fuckin' ballpark it ain't the same league it ain't even the same fuckin' sport There was a day when I thought I needed to defend Harry Potter in the midst of the now dead Twilight craze and you can see that below in what was my original review It is a testament to the power of this series that while various other franchises Twilight Hunger Games have surged into popularity and then faded Harry Potter remains unwaveringly strong after nineteen years It is clear readers hold just as much admiration for these books as they always have Time has not dimmed thatI will one day write an essay about what these books mean to me Eternal this is the one that started it all Original review circa 2010 A note in regard to the on going Potter vs Twilight debate Go ahed tell me Twilight is better Tell me that James is scarier than Voldemort That the Cullens are a better family than the Weasly's That Edward is cooler than Harry and Bella is smarter than Hermione Tell me that Stephenie Meyer is talented than JK Rowling Go ahead I dare you Those who think the topic of Harry Potter or Twilight is worth debating and arguing over are utterly stupid uite frankly this book is amazing
