HP is one of the best things ever in literature, it deserves always respect and a big to J.K. Rowling.
Just hilarious. And I say this as a fan of the books. Why is it that when people like something they also have to overrate it like shit? HP is great entertainment for sure but it has absolutely 0 impact in literature overall. Rowling writes in an engaging manner but the language she uses is not impressive at all.

That said, I enjoy the books. And I actually never felt that the transition from children's story to a more dark tone was that unnatural.

My faves are probably Prisoner of Azkaban and Half-blood Prince.
