I love the series as a whole because J.K. Rowling has created such a rich world. Everything is so well thought-out and works so well together. The characters have deeply complex histories and are very believable - their motivations and actions make sense. She has created a richly detailed world - I can imagine every location and item in the books because her images are so clear. The later books refer back to the earlier books to small things that were mentioned that you previously thought were insignificant - it is woven together extremely well. It is a great read, and I have read it many many times.
