Though I may have already stated pretty clearly how much I love Harry Potter, I reckon it has been a while, so I can safely repeat myself.
I do love Harry Potter!
I am not that into the films; adaptations of books everyone has read and loved rarely lead to innovative film-making (not to mention my views on adaptations..!) so they are OK but largely inferior to the books.
I hadn't read this one since 2012, and while it's more of a children's book than my personal favourite - the later, the darker, the better! - it is still a charming, entertaining and original.
I remember reading it for the first time, and marvelling at how creative it was.
Not great literature, yet a great read!
