There have been many books (and movies) that have come out with the same theme as Harry Potter but they haven’t done so well. It makes many wonder why did the Harry Potter series broke through the way they did. So, what made them special? How come everyone was so interested?
Well, firstly, Harry Potter’s story is quite relate-able. Even though kids out there are not dealing with magic, witches and spells, they are dealing with the same family and educational issues that Harry Potter is portraying. Just like all kids out there, harry Potter thinks about school, girls, friends and homework. This simply makes him connect with many kids.
Secondly, parents love him because it seems Harry Potter makes the right decisions most times and throughout the book series, he grows mentally and matures in a way that is quite commendable. He is not rebellious and fight for what’s right. This makes him a favorite among parents who are struggling with raising their kids the right way.
Throughout the book series, we were treated to a gazillion quotes. Some of them were amazing, some unusual, some relate-able, some inspirational, some magical, some unusual, and others, just downright naughty.
