Yes, I’m one of those funny people who never really jumped on the Harry Potter train when all the hype was flying around. I eventually got the movies. Actually a friend gave me one of the, then, latest ones and after that I of course felt obliged to get the rest in the series.
A while ago the Pottermore site went live. Actually, the main site is still in restricted beta but the e-book section is fully operational. This meant that the Harry Potter books, for the first time, is available as e-books.
So I thought, what the heck, let’s have a go at them. I’ve read the first one so far and, sure, it’s a quite okay fantasy novel for the younger audience but I cannot say that I really understand why it became so overhyped.
