And reflections on this phenomenon

Gülçin Alpöge


What makes Harry Potter books so readable? How come children read so many pages in such a few days? Why do children like them so much? I shall try to explain this phenomenon by showing that Rowling is a very imaginative and a very clever author and her works are carefully thought out and inteligently put together. Also I believe that Harry Potter books are attractive to children because of their resemblence to fairy tales. I shall try to show this by examples from her books.
