A PEEK INTO THE WIZARDING WORLD
“Of course, it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?” is there a more apt quote from a book that defines its universe? Ever heard about Harry potter? Chances are you have and heard that it’s a book about magic and people. But what these explanations would fail to tell you, is that one of the most popular fictions in the history of mankind does much more than you would expect it to do. The wizarding world offers you a universe you won’t find everywhere else, a universe which engulfs you so much that you can’t resist being a part of it. And of course, magic?
A brief about the author- JK Rowling
Joanne Rowling is the author of the revered HARRY POTTER series, which has sold over 600 million copies and translated into 84 languages and is said to be one of the best fantasy genre literature. Forbes magazine named her one of the world’s richest authors in 2008.
A TRIP TO MAGIC, WHY SHOULD ONE NOT MISS THE POTTER VERSE?
To be simple, this question holds no one answer. The Harry Potter franchise is based on the story of a young boy named Harry, who is unknowingly living in the normal human world, termed “Muggles” by wizards, and finds out that he is a wizard when he is approached by somebody from the magical world. The story spanning 7 books takes you on a trip of magic, love, friendship, anger, jealousy and literally every other human emotion. The book will completely immerse you in the story, with you not willing to leave it till you read the last word. The series at no point will make you visualize that you are bored, but rather, with every line, the story opens more, a puzzle becomes complete, and a divine answer comes into existence. The series is mainly staged around magic, which brings the kid inside every one of us. We must admit that all of us have grown up listening to stories of waving wands, a Pegasus or a flying horse, fairies, goblins and whatnot. The book includes all such elements and triggers the inquisitive and childish side of your human nature, but this is not to say that the book is a read for 10-year-olds only, the book has a dark, realistic side to it, which as a child you might find fascinating, but as you grow up, you understand the connections.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
The series’ overall theme revolves around Pride, death and love. These 3 human emotions, although so different, have been so perfectly intertwined in the text, that you would find it difficult to differentiate them, but the end will make you whole. The connections in the book are subtle and make the book even more beautiful as you realize them along the way. One more reason why one should enter the wizarding world is that it’s fantasy. What Fantasy means is that it’s fiction, imaginative and creative. Even if the books end, your brain opens up to new realms of possibilities. Theories and alternative explanations are galore. And I might not have to tell you what a beautiful day it is to sit with your favourite Potterheads and discuss if Voldemort should have done something else rather than or if Prisoner of Azkaban is overrated. You can buy the bestselling fiction book on our website…… (oh my sincere apologies, once you get me started on harry potter, I can’t resist giving spoilers and just discussion). What I mean to say is that you aren’t limited to a character, the limits lay where your brain stops for a tea break, and perhaps, has a chai pe charcha or two.
The 7 books in order of reading are-
- Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone
- 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
One more reason why you should take a leap of faith into the Potterverse is that the text gives you a feeling of discovery every time you read it. The text is very basic, and the story becomes relatable, although we know magic does not exist. When reading, you are gonna feel you are one of the students of Hogwarts (the magic school, where Harry starts his journey of being a wizard) and feel you are watching the entire cinema unroll before your own eyes. You would also feel you should be sorted into a house, where you would embolden all the traits it stands for, and learn the magics taught in your class. And who said the Potterverse ends with books? Potterverse goes much further, with 8 blockbuster movies made on the series, and also the wizarding world website, which gives you the privilege of having your own wand, being sorted into a house, and having your own patronus. So, obviously, you won’t have a limit with magic, in fact, it’s always about how far you can go. Buy these bestselling books online in India.
