Question by Sharry: What are some good new fantasy books besides Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings?
I’m tired of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. They’re old news now. I prefer books with drama, romance, fantasy, magic, adventure, and other similar traits. Can anyone reccomend some new books that I’d like please?

You may enjoy the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. It begins with “Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment.” It borderlines sci-fi and fantasy – but the books are pretty good. A real “page turner”.

Happy reading.

Answer by Tejas Bhagwat
harry potter movie series has been fairly accurate in converting text to video….
if you watch the first seven movies carefully then u wont have any problems with watching HP 7.2
Since you are planning to read the books anyway i would suggest that you dont search for summaries of the stories… Experience JK Rowling’s magic in the books itself !!!!

Question by Nymphadora Tonks: Harry Potter. What do you think is the importance of the US cover for the 7th book?
I think it fits this description. (in the Department of Mysteries Death Room)

“This room was larger than the last, dimly lit and rectangular, and the center of it was sunken, forming a great stone pit some twenty feet below them. They were standing on the topmost tier of what seemed to be stone benches running all around the room and desending in steep steps like an amphitheater, or the courtroopm in which Harry had been tried by the Wizengamot. Instead of a chained chair, however, there was a raised stone dias in the center of the lowered floor, and pon the dias stood a stone archway that looked so ancient, cracked, and crumbling that Harry was amazed the thing was still standing. Unsupported by any surrounding wall, the archway was hung with a tattered black curtain or veil”

I think the art is of importance, as it’s a scene from the book “We’re seeing Harry in a very interesting situation. Readers will find out exactly what the situation is.” Arthur Levine, US Potter editor

Question by Nymphadora Tonks: Harry Potter. What do you think is the importance of the US cover for the 7th book?
I found this in the fifth book… do you think it fits the description?

(in the Department of Mysteries… room with the veil)

“This room was larger than the lasr, dimly lit and rectangular, and the center of it was sunken, forming a great stone pit some twenty feet below them. They were standing on the topmost tier of what seemed to be stone benches running all around the room and desending in steep steps like an amphitheater, or the courtroopm in which Harry had been tried by the Wizengamot. Instead of a chained chair, however, there was a raised stone dias in the center of the lowered floor, and pon the dias stood a stone archway that looked so ancient, cracked, and crumbling that Harry was amazed the thing was still standing. Unsupported by any surrounding wall, the archway was hung with a tattered black curtain or veil…”
I personally think that the cover art is of great importance, as it is a scene from the book… “We’re seeing Harry in a very interesting situation. Readers will find out exactly what the situation is.” Arthur Levine, the US Potter editor…

and it isn’t like the Harry Potter books are the only ones I read… you should see my bookshelf… I just love the books, and I enjoy reading them more than once…

I think you are all reading way too much into it. And I think Ms. Rowling would prefer it if you read some good old fashioned classics while you waited for 7 instead of spending so much time dwelling on it. There are good books out there to read. July will get here soon enough and then we will all find out together. In the meantime pick up Dracula or Wuthering Heights and read something else. Pax – C.

Question by CryingKidsDotCom: Harry Potter the most underdeveloped/dull character in the series?
Harry Potter is commonly loved by young and old because of the love and adventure/fantasy brought into the books and the high budget well written movies as well but no one seems to notice how dull the character Harry Potter really is. I mean come on he never really shows any true emotion except seeming upset or angry at points but he is so over rated, not the books or movies but how great he is/ He isnt that selfless either. Yeah his parents sacrifed themselves for him and he pretty much sacrificed himself in the last one but there was no emotion in it, he never showed he was upset to die but the reward of saving his friends and family was what motivated him and everyone praising him for not really doing anything. And the first 3-4 books were like mystery/detective books in a wizerdy world you cant deny that then it gets all heavy into horcruxes which I don’t think was originally planned and they through that into the mix and try to make Harry look so self ritious but in the end is really the least exciting character, he’s always so flat and dull and it just bores me. I love the movies and love the story’s but I just wish people would acknowledged this.
And a lot of his actions are unrealistic to the situation and as for his feelings toward his family treating him awful, he never really reacted to it or showed reaction other than singing happy birthday to himself or talking to hedwig.
@RKL88 you’re naming of all the things he’s done and not his motivation or characteristics/emotion. I could say I took a shit and think nothing of it as you said he is so exciting because he defeated the dark lord instead of saying why or what led him to that point.

Answer by Leah
I understand where you’re coming from, his character ultimately IS dull. But I don’t think Harry was that unemotional. Think about it, you’re parents died and the family that you’ve been living with hates the living shit out of you…I mean…what are you supposed to feel?

It’s not like his main goal in life was to be praised, it’s just that he did what he had to do to save the ones that he truly valued in his life. In my point of view, the reason why Harry wasn’t upset about dying was because his loved ones were in danger and he still knew that the only way to save his friends was for him to succeed. I believe that that’s selflessness, a trait Harry had learned to develop over the books.

Question by Taleweaver: Long! How exactly do I handle this? My story VS Harry Potter?
I’ve been writing a story set in a institute for slayers of supernatural beings (run by a shady organization). It’s in a walled fortress, so there’s a town inside and — at the very middle — the fotress itself, which has tonnes of towers and walkways cut into the walls. There are also magic portals and locks with eyes.

It used to be owned by a wizard, who was a massive problem for the slayers until they managed to kill him. Since he did all sorts of horrible experiments the graveyard is full of tortured souls and there are twisted creatures in the tunnels and dungeons underneath the fortress. Lots of it is also unexplored because he set up all sorts of traps and curses to kill anyone who broke in. But the slayers use it, because its concealed from regular people*. The pupils are just told to stick to the paths that have already been mapped out.

My problem is Hogwarts. I definitely, definitely am not copying Hogwarts, as I have no attachment to HP whatsoever. My reasons for having a old fashioned, grim setting are of D. Gray Man and Soul Eater — anyone who’s read/watched them will understand. They’re what inspired my writing (I actually began writing because I can’t draw). I like things that are grim and dangerous, and I love it when anything can go wrong at any time. Here I have monsters, undead and tonnes of locations, and its the natural setting for my story. I’ve been layering on magic and mystery to make it more interesting, since (in my story) pretty much everything exists.

Still, I don’t want people thinking its derivative of Harry Potter, which did the dark-building setting first. Normally it wouldn’t bother me, but Harry Potter is popular, and by the time I finish this book the second Harry Potter hype-wave will be beginning (because of the movies).

So… should I just write the story I want to write, and not give a damn about what people might think? Or should I care?

PS: Note that my storyline isn’t about a boy destined to kill some evil villain. Also they live houses in the town, and only go into the fortress for their lessons, kind of like Shibusen from Soul Eater. The fortress is more like a uni campus, not a boarding school, with rooms converted to lecture halls as well as smaller classrooms.

PSS: I’m asking this question since most of you ar Harry Potter fans, I’d like to see what you guys think.

*It’s set in London, in a pocket of space isolated from the rest of the world. It’s all old-fashioned because its been isolated for centuries. But the fortress has been updated by the slayers and has electrical plugs, toilets and lights.

Answer by Secret Passion
