A review of Harry Potter I like reading books that are interesting. My favorite book is Harry Potter. Harry Potter is a boy who is unusual. He can use magic. I think the story about Harry is exciting. J.K. Rowling is a great author who writes the Harry Potter. I like J.K. Rowling very much. But I think if I were her, I would write my books quickly, because a lot of people wait for the new stories about Harry Potter for a long time. Please be quick, Rowling!
