I finally read the Harry Potter book series in a bit less than a month. Overall it was pretty good. The first 3 felt easier to read than the later books but the later books for sure were more engaging with more depth. At the end of it all, Neville Longbottom was the real hero in my opinion. Yes, Harry, Ron, and Hermione were the central figures and had a lot of the book’s focus on them but Neville proved many times to be a loyal friend to Harry and one willing to do the hard or dangerous task when it mattered most. All of that without any special abilities or assistance.
