Harry Potter

by Fadi & Alba Pereira

hogwartsWe think we just cannot say anything about Harry Potter, because everything has been said. This is the most succesful, important and famous saga in the whole world. It all started with 7 books written by J. K. Rowling. The books tell the story of a wizard child (Harry Potter) who discovered he was a wizard when he was 11, and he received the news that he had to go to the best school of magic: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Once there, and with his two best friends (Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger) he saves the magic (and even the muggle) world from Voldemort, the most evil and dark wizard in magic history. There are more important characters that help him to save the world, like Albus Dumbledore, the headmaster of Hogwarts, Severus Snape (although he seems a bad person), the potion’s teacher, some Hogwarts’ students, some of whom were involved in Dumbledore’s Army, like Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley or Luna Lovegood, and even other teachers, like McGonagall and the Order of the Phoenix, a group of adult friends and teachers that help Harry and fight againgst Voldemort. The titles of the books are:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stonephoenix
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Curiosities:

In the films, the final book was divided in two parts, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, because it would be impossible to tell the story in only one film: it would last more than 4 hours.

In the book Harry has green eyes, but in the film the actor (Daniel Radcliffe) has blue eyes, and he couldn’t wear contact lenses because they hurt him.

  1. These curiosities are very interesting. I really like the films but I hadn´t realized some details.

  2. I like the books so much! I haven’t read all the books, but I want to read all of them this summer and watch the films. It was my brother who inspired me to read them.
