Harry Potter literary series
The Lord of the Rings
Lord of The Rings is an awesome series don't get me wrong but the style Tolkien writes in is extremely long and boring thus the reader isn't really interested. I feel that Harry Potter associates with modern life a bit more and appeals to more readers.
Although Lotr is well written, it's a lot to get through, and (saying this as as a very good reader) it gets exhausting. Harry Potter has many layers, and as you grow up you understand more of them. Also: Please do not call Harry a guy in dorky glasses. It's like calling Aragorn a guy who won't get his sword fixed.
Better than a little nerd in dorky glasses waving his little stick around.
Lord of the Rings is an epic, Harry potter is a novel
Harry potter is good, Lord of the rings is much better though IMO.
lord of the rings is better.
