Harry Potter is an ingenious world created by the goddess of writing herself, JK Rowling. It is simply marvelous how she created a haven for millions of children like myself to escape through the hands of a book. She was a genius, Who created amazing characters we saw grow up. We lived with them. We went on adventures with them. Some we loved (Hermione! ), Some we hated (Umbridge), Some we had mixed feelings for (Draco), And some we even had to watch die (Too many to count! ). And through all the crying and laughing and brilliance of it all there remained the fact that this series is an absolute classic. Not only was Rowling able to create such a successful book series, But she was also able to convince many to learn to love to read, Many to keep going no matter what, To learn strength and magic and wonder. As the characters grew up, So did we. And we at the end were able to look back and realize, We will never be the same again.

Twilight is about how you can't live without a boyfriend.

First Law, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings are the best books ever written. They should be mandatory to be read in schools instead of the books they are currently forcing students to read.

That isn't exactly an answer but okay. . .

Some more things about why harry potter is better than twilight-

Harry Potter is so complex and is a UNIVERSE, Not just a story. I mean, Do you see Twilight theme parks at Universal Studios?
So many people have gotten into reading because of Harry potter.

And now, About Twilight. This tale sets women back 50 years. The damsel in distress who can't do anything by herself, Who needs her 'sparkling' boyfriend to save the day? When he leaves her she jumps off a cliff, While the female characters of harry potter are strong and fight their own battles. They don't let the men just do it themselves. They are just as important in the role of the story. I love how in Harry Potter, There is love, But within a magnificent adventure!

I rest my case.
