Books you think are overrated.

Recommended Posts

Harry Potter. When I was in high school, a classmate lent me the first book (Philosopher's Stone) and practically forced me to read it. I would have quit after about 50 pages had it not been for his constant nagging me to finish it. I don't think it's a particularly interesting read. Main weaknesses:

-The concept is too much of a cliche.

-Too much school drama with denentions or the students' efforts to avoid them. At times, I felt that might as well be a normal school (no mages) without essentially anything changing in the story.

-Wrong choice to write Hermione as the most skilled student when Harry was supposed to be the main character.
