In this story, there are lots of unique characters. The protagonist, Harry is a smart, brave, and inquisitive person, so he gets in a lot of troubles at the school. Other characters, especially, Harryfs best friends, Ron and Hermione have unique personalities. Ron, who was born between typical wizard and witch, is very frank, funny, and cantankerous. On the other hand, Hermione was born between typical muggles, and she is smart, earnest, and honest. As you can see, they have opposite characteristics, so they often quarrel over a petty issue. Mr and Mrs Dursley are typical muggles and hate them. They have a son called Duddly, he is big fat boy, who always bullies Harry as parents do. Harry is treated so badly by them, for example,h Perhaps it had something to do with living in a dark cupboard, but Harry had always been small and skinnier than he really was because all he had to wear were old clothes of Dudleyfs. He wore round glasses held together with a lot of Sellotape because of all the times Dudly had punched him on the nose.h Also, there are many unique characters at the Hogwarts, such as headmaster of the school, Dunbledore, and the antagonist of Harry, Malfoy.
Not only this book, the theme of Harry Potter series is gloveh, and gfriendshiph. Harry could alive from Load Voldemortfs attack because his mother used magic of protection. After he enters Hogwarts, he can reach the philosopherfs stone because of the Ron and Hermionefs help. Love and friendship are described in this series coherently.
Now, I have my personal opinions about the story. I think there are pros and cons in this book. First, many people, children to adults, boys and girls, love this series. What is the most attractive cause that fascinates many people? I guess it is detailed description of characters and the story. Harry Potter series is not a short story and hasnft completed yet. If you start reading, you will find yourself that you cannot stop reading it. This is because the story is so interesting and exciting, and characters make the story more mysterious and entertaining. For instance, there is a character called Hagrid. He is a big guy and he speaks English which is spoken somewhere in the northern England such as, gTell yer what, Ifll give yer animal. Not a toad, toads went outta fashion years age, yehfd be laughed at- anf I donf like cats, they make me sneeze. Ifll get yer an owl. All the kids want owls, theyfre dead useful, carry yer post anf everythinfh (62). The way of he speaks makes the story more soft and casual which children feel familiar.
On the other hand, these kinds of books describe the things, like magic, or the characteristics extremely. For example, the main characters always have the special power that the others donft have, and they defeat the opponents and finally get the honor and prize. These features make little children to believe the story as the truth. Not surprisingly, they try to do the same things as the characters do in the story such as flying in the sky, or beating the opponents with power.
In conclusion, this book entertains many people, and gives dream to the children. The story is about love and friendship, so that children have a lot of things learning from. Even though the story has disadvantages above, children can improve their feelings and thoughts. And that is one of the most essential thing of these kind of novels.
