The seven books of the
Harry Potter Series
written by J.K. Rowling
describe the adventures of a young boy being
drawn into the world of magic. The normal people, called muggles
have no idea that such a parallel world exists. The charm of the story is
the way the plot and it's characters are situated both in the real and
in a magical world.
The normal problems and activities of an every day life, like going
to school, have to quarrel with schoolmates etc. are placed into a
magical environment. Thus, is it easy to identify oneself with the protagonists.
Nevertheless, it shows how a daily life would look like in a magical world
where any magical performance is as easy as pressing a button.
The many fan sides on the web like
The Leaky Cauldron
show the interest in the books.
Harry Potter Movies
have increased the fame of the story and it's characters.
