Hello! I am Mridula and today I am going to give a summary of the all time favorite Harry Potter. Harry Potter is a series that is loved by all age groups. Whether you are new to reading books or already a book lover like me, Harry Potter is a great contribution to your book-list. Now, I am not going to give spoilers but, a brief summary of the plot.
Harry Potter series revolves mainly around a boy called Harry Potter who gets to know at the age of 11 years that he is in fact a wizard. He goes to a school for wizards and witches, makes new friends and learns about the hard truth of his past. What makes this book unique is that Harry is left with making the decisions that will save him and the whole wizard community. He also has a mass murderer after him who wants to kill him to regain his original power and Harry has to also fight him. He also develops his magic skills and becomes one of the powerful wizards of all time. Also with the humor of Ron Weasley and wittiness of Hermoine Granger (2 best friends of Harry Potter) the story becomes interesting to read. In the way, he also makes many enemies and also has to cope with the task of dealing with them. Luckily his friends are loyal and help him to fight all of these obstacles.
If you are hesitant to read such long books, don’t worry. J.k Rowling has beautifully described every aspect of the novel and it will keep you so captivated that you will not even know when you finished the book. And as you read one book you will want to read more and more. This books essentially also leave a deep influence on lives as they teach important life skills like loyalty, friendship, bravery, humanity and being a good reader. The books are lighthearted and can be read by any child above 10 years. However, you will have to read all the books and do not start from the middle as you may not be able to comprehend with the flow of the story.
In my opinion Harry Potter is a must. It is nothing like fairy tales and if your genre is adventure then you are fortunate as the action in Harry Potter starts from the first book (Philosopher’s Stone) itself. However, the last book Cursed Child was not up to the mark and somewhere in the middle you may get confused. A lot of people also believe that seeing the movies is enough and there is no need to read the book, I advise them not to do this. The movies have left or changed a lot of events that were in the books. Also the books forgot to personify certain characters which very important in the books.
Though not recommended by me, you can continue the Harry Potter story by reading books like Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Tales of Beedle the Bard,etc. After you have completed the books only then see the movies.
