Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling

The Harry Potter series include seven most amazing books you will ever read. There is not much one can say about the series at this point but I couldn't help review it for my blog.
This is the fantasy story which takes you to the world full of magic and wonder. It is so well written that the characters come to life and you can't help but go through with what they are going through. It is bedazzling, mesmerising and fascinating tale of witchcraft and wizardry. An entire world hidden from human eyes, for the time being you will believe it too.
Although it has been a few years since I read these books and my memory might be a little rusty but I'll try my best to convince you to read them if you haven't already ;)
The story began with a tragedy, a boy being orphaned and sent to live with his aunt and her family who basically don't want anything to do with "his kind" but are forced to take care of the child by Hogwarts headmaster, Dumbledore. There he is bullied by his cousin and neglected by his aunt and uncle. Then on his 11th birthday his entire world changes when he found out that his parents were not "normal" people or muggles but wizards and that he was also accepted to study at the Hogwarts, a school of witchcraft and wizardry. Hence the adventures of Harry Potter began....
In every book we see Harry and his friends Hermione and Ron trying to make it through another school year unscathed while breaking every rule they could. They faced all kinds of villainous creatures, trolls, gigantic spiders, dragons, basilisks and ultimately Voldemort, who is the evil wizard and must be defeated in order for there to be peace.
The books have there happy and sad moments. The most tragic moment was when Sirius died in book five saving harry and the happiest I think was the climax, when harry finally defeated Voldemort.
There is a lot of drama and mystery to last you a life time. you will love some characters and hate the others. Severus Snape, one of the professor at Hogwarts is an example of one such character. throughout the series you will hate him but in the end he turned out to be the good one. His tragic life will leave a long lasting impression on you.
There wasn't a single flaw i could find in these books, excellent plot, well executed, adventure, mystery, love, sacrifice, tragedy and epic ending. The series has it all!!
