Harry Potter - 494 words
I think 4th and 5th graders would be interested in the Harry Potter series because, although it has violence in it I think that age level should be able to handle it. If any kids younger than that have read it or want to read it, I would not recommended it because they just might think that the violence is real and that the wizardry is real. Although I dont think it is a good book for younger children, I think that the media and newspaper writers are going just a little to far. I dont think its really bad as they make it out to be. The writers and media make even older kids parents think twice about buying the book so there kid can read it. I think that the banning from school and other plac ...

Harry Potter Prisoner Of Azkaban - 560 words
I. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban A. Setting- a prestigious school for witchcraft by the name of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry 1. The setting is important to the story because the school and its secret passages play an invariably large role in this story. 2. Id say the author is mostly concerned with presenting exciting action and evoking a certain mood. Throughout the story there is never a time when you arent in suspense. Theres always something exciting happening and plenty of twists in the plot that make you wonder whats going to happen next. 3. The story is told from the limited omniscient point of view; the author only tells us what Harry Potter is thinking, feel ...

Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban - 498 words
Harry potter and the prisoner of Azkaban is an excellent book. Out of ten stars I would rate this one an eight because it was to short. Once you get into it and finish it.

Harry Potter - 752 words
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, written by J.K. Rowling, is an excellent example of a modern novel that uses medieval influences extensively. Many of the novels characters are based on medieval ideas and superstitions. The settings in the book resemble old medieval towns as well as castles. The book is also full of medieval imagery such as knights in armour, carriages etc. Whilst there is no time travel involved in the novel, the medieval period is used to such an effect that the reader is encouraged to ignore the fact that the book is set in the present. People in the medieval era were quite superstitious. They believed in fictional characters such as witches and wizards. Harry Potter ...

Review Of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone - 652 words
In the British version of--what us American's call-- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling there are many qualities of the book that are good. To name just a few there is her wonderful plot design, and the fact that Rowling makes great use of forming rounded characters. With Rowling, she knew where she wanted to go with the novel and followed through in a way that was ever pleasing and attention grabbing to the plot. It starts off with the reader finding themselves in England with a family of Muggles, or "non-magic people", that are having a quiet moment at home when they are bombarded with a small baby boy who had just "saved the world" from an evil wizard. The people that y ...

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire By J. K. Rowling - 1,190 words
I have chosen to do my novel review on my one of my favourite books to read for fun: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the fourth book in a series of seven. You have advised us to break up the book into four sections according to chapter number, but I thought I would do a slight variation on this. I have decided to break up the novel into four simple parts Introduction, Orientation, Plot Development and Conclusion. Since this book is written for a lower age category (although the underlying symbolism and sentence structure is more suited for a teen/adult audience), it is relatively easy to distinguish between these four parts, and they are present in all four books in the series. INTRODU ...

Frankenstein: The Classic Harry Potter - 1,175 words
Harry Potter was a strange boy. He loved to do homework and could not wait for school. The strangest thing was that he was a wizard. And even for a wizard he was quite strange. At the beginning of Harry Potters journey, the young boy entered a strange new world so unlike his reality, he was utterly confused, but still filled with awe. By the end of his crossing, he entered an enlightened stage and as a result, became a hero to us all. Bizarrely, Mary Shelleys novel, Frankenstein in a way, abides by the same basic pattern. To many, the monster of Frankenstein became an abomination to the world. But for the few with just that correct perspective, he was something much more than a mistake. Soon ...

Why Read? - 795 words
#8220;Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself.... You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms." Angela Carter (1940 - 1992), British author. Why read? Why should I read the book before it comes out in cinema? Why is settling down with a good book better then sitting on the couch watching The Simpson's reruns? I have often pondered the merits of reading, but you don't realise the advantages until you actually begin reading. Until I unlocked my first real book I couldn't have dreamed of the wonders and marvels that it opens to you. It's just that when you do read you discover how exquisite the del ...

I have to agree with the substance of this argument but would have to suggest that one example of a modern slant to an ancient tale is hardly enough to prove the point. But something that James did mention in his post to the forum reminded me of the work of an author unquestionably relevant to our discussion: read some Angela Carter he urges: in fact, watch The Company of Wolves, a non-Disney fairy-tale film based on one of her stories. Having read these comments, Paul Bommer (www.paulbommer.com) replied: I agree with James that the Angela Carter spins o ...
