Dear People Who Haven’t Read Harry Potter,
I pity you. I really do. I really don’t know how to start! I don’t get how you can NOT have read them! They are one of the most famous books and your bound to see them in any bookshop. Do not give me the lame excuse of ‘Oh, I just haven’t got around to them’. Yes, maybe you are a book worm. Yes, you have many books to read and re-read. yes, you have a life besides books. But are you telling me that you can’t possibly take out some time, pick up the books, and read them?
But time is of the essence, i hear you complain. Are you telling me If you found a treasure map leading to your life’s desires, you wouldn’t take out your time, follow the clues and riddles and make that voyage? Are you telling me you would say that your job and other things are more important? Or you would you skip work or even assignments for a few days, even months, find that treasure, and savour every moment of your life? If you would find the treasure, surely you would read Harry Potter, which holds that treasure!
Harry Potter has shaped millions of lives. So many people have picked up the books as one normal person and have come out as someone else entirely. I get that it might not be your style but give them a chance. Just because it is a super-hyped up book does not mean it’s rubbish. Why do you think so many people like it? For no reason? Well, think again. Harry Potter is such an amazing series, I can not put it into words. Go read the books and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
It’s fantasy. There’re dragons, magic and all that weird stuff. Okay maybe you are no fantasy fan but Harry potter is different. J.K Rowling almost wrote the book so it would fit under any category. There are so many other elements such as contemporary, dystopia, you name it. Harry Potter has it all.
I watched a few movies, they were rubbish.
Don’t you DARE judge a book by its movie, let alone it’s cover! The movies were okay but they weren’t as magical as their books. It is against the Book Laws to judge books by their movie adaptations.
I tried Cursed Child and it was rubbish. Sorry to burst your bubble, Cursed Child wasn’t even written by J.K Rowling. Seriously, that is not even an excuse. Even Fantastic Beasts is not an excuse for you not to pick up HP…
I read it. I didn’t like it. Well, at least you tried. Not everyone is an HP fan especially if you read it after you childhood! 9/10 will enjoy it but there is that minor that secretly hates it. Mainly because they didn’t grow up reading it or it’s not childish. I respect you fi you did not enjoy it. At least you were honest.
I beg you. For the love of books, read it. I will try and convert you to a Potterhead and I like to think i can succeed.
Are you reluctant to pick up the HP series? Have you even considered reading them? Or are you already a major fan, nodding your head to this post? Did you read the books, and hated them? WHY! I MUST KNOW! Ponder away with me?
