I read the Harry potter books as they came out, I was pretty much bang on the right age for them. I really fug them, but I didn't necessarily place them higher in my estimation than a lot of other SFF children's books that came out around the same time. Things like Mortal engines, the Darren Shan books, everything by Eoin colfer and the Bartimaeus trilogy all seemed to be a bit more complex. The early Potter books are basically detective stories, well written ones, but they follow a pretty simple structure and the characters are pretty straightforward. This isn't a complaint, I think it's their main strength, simpler series tend to become more iconic. I just think its a shame that other authors of the time didn't get a fraction of the exposure that JK Rowling got.

I love Harry Potter books much more than the films. All the parts.

I feel like I should re-read it. It always gives me a feeling of happiness and magic.
