Harry Potter è un predestinato: ha una cicatrice a forma di saetta sulla fronte e provoca strani fenomeni, come quello di farsi ricrescere in una notte i capelli inesorabilmente tagliati dai perfidi zii. Ma solo in occasione del suo undicesimo compleanno gli si rivelano la sua natura e il suo destino, e il mondo misterioso cui di diritto appartiene. Nello scatenato universo fantastico della Rowling, popolato da gufi portalettere, scope volanti, caramelle al gusto di cavolini di Bruxelles, ritratti che scappano, la magia si presenta come la vera vita, e strega anche il lettore allontanandolo dal nostro mondo che gli apparirà monotono e privo di sorprese. Il risveglio dalla lettura lo lascerà pieno di nostalgia, ma ancora illuminato dai riflessi di questo lussureggiante fuoco d’artificio.
"J.K. Rowling è una scrittrice vera, dotata di un’immaginazione strabiliante, del respiro e della cultura dei grandi romanzieri. La saga del maghetto è disseminata di richiami a Shakespeare e Kafka, Dickens e Milton, senza la pesantezza e l’arroganza del citazionismo."

Stuck at home? Got some time on your hands? Want to start a long series ? But you don't want a dud? Check out this booktube video all about which series are worth your time (and which ones aren't)! Here's the Written Review! Can you hear me screaming? As expected, the illustrations brought thi
I'm going to keep this brief since there isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. *clears throat* I think the reason I waited so long to read this series is because I just couldn't imagine myself enjoying reading about an eleven-year-old boy and his adventures at a school of wizardry. I thoug Leggi tutto
One of my first jobs was at a bookstore. When I was a kid my Mom would take me to the mall and I would spend tons of time hanging out at Waldenbooks (who here remembers Waldenbooks?) Right when I became legally old enough to work, I went in and submitted my application and a few weeks later I was se Leggi tutto
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.
Rereading for the 3rd time for the group read. Once upon a time, there was a 10th grader named Khanh who didn't get along with people very well. She wasn't an outcast in school, and all the bullying and teasing stopped with the commencement of high school, but she had always been a bookworm and has g Leggi tutto
I'm on page 27. I can already tell this is going to be a big hit someday. Everyone take note of this author. He's going places. Couldn't find him on Twitter, though. Wanted to tell him how great I thought page 23 was.
I will never ever rate this lower than 5 stars. BEAUTIFUL.
Why the heck did I not read Harry Potter before now...its flipping magical (literally)!
