Harry Potter Is Overrated


As of February 2014, book series, Harry Potter, had sold over 450 million copies. JK Rowling previously became the first billionaire to make their earnings from writing books, a status which she has has now lost due to charitable given and high tax rates. The series was also turned into a block buster movie series, which made Warner Bros. nearly 10 billion dollars.

Take a look at the above. Harry Potter was, and still is an immensely popular series. So, curious to see what all the fuss was about, two years ago I took a read of the first book in the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. I suppose it was good, but I just couldn’t see what the massive fuss was about. I carried on reading the series. Next up was The Chamber Of Secrets, a book which I struggled to read to the end of because it was so dull. The furthest I’ve ever got into Harry Potter was the third book, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Askaban. I found this one so boring that I could only make it a few chapters before I had had enough! I gave them another try a few months ago, and I got bored by the time I had finished book 2!

I haven’t got a clue what the rest of the world so amazing about the Harry Potter series. There are loads of great books set in the magical world that deserve much more attention than they get. I have no idea how Harry Potter got so popular either. No idea.

    I totally agree! I saw the title of your post on KBC and was like yeah! Exactly! Like you said I don’t get what all the fuss is about. I am a huge reader and it actually makes me quite upset that some books that are so much better than that are not getting the insane exposure that Harry Potter gets. I tried to read Harry Potter once but it was boring to me. Loved your post! 😀
