Many children never thought they liked to read before they saw J. K. Rowling’s books for the first time. We shall admit it instead of analyzing the sacred sense behind the stories about young wizards. Once quite an average writer, Rowling embedded popular and problematic topics into a simple plot that got more entangled with every other book. Stories definitely hooked children, teens, and, to be completely honest, a good deal of adults. No doubt, the writer cast enough magic to make the entire world spell-bound to the series.
The remarkable contribution J. K. Rowling made on her readers is sparkling the idea that long challenging books can be really interesting – we only need to start reading them. Certainly, most kids “swallowed” one book in a couple of days, which shows that reading a huge volume is not a challenge if the book is really interesting. Here is also the message for writers – if children struggle to read your books, search for failures in style and narration as well as in plot.
The Harry Potter series started the era of reading for many kids. Once attracted by such compelling stories, young people do not want to say goodbye. As the last book was finished, young readers looked for more adventures in literature. They found that stories by other writers were also catchy, and there was a huge bulk of literature to compensate for the ending of the Harry Potter series.
