Disagree... there is nothing really fantastic abt the harry potter series. Not that I don't enjoy reading the books, I read every one of them... it's just that I do not feel there is anything special abt her writing. IMHO, no one has yet beaten JRR Tolkien.

JK is a fantastic story-teller. I totally enjoyed reading her Harry Potter books. Her imagination is absolutely amazing. I am eagerly awaiting her last installment on the HP series. I'm sure it will be another page-turner. I hope that she would continue writing stories like Harry Potter even if the series end. It would be a complete waste of her talent if she stops writing. ;)

JK Rowling is not even the greatest writer of childrens fantasy literature currently living in Britain let alone anything else, she is just the most popular, her writing is basically wish-fulfillment, kids and others who identify with the social situation of the characters and envy the other things like magic and renown that Harry has. Philip Pullman (the Dark Materials trilogy) for example is a far better writer and a million times more challenging and inventive. The ultimate childrens writer was and still is Roald Dahl though, there is no contest

I don't think she is the greatest writer ever. I do think she has done wonders for the world of children's literature and after her children's stories will never be the same. This is a good and bad thing. I think they are pushing the limits and children's stories are growing more morbid, not so much a good thing. At the same time, kids are reading again and they are excited about it. That is not an easy task in this world of electronics where everything is more exciting to a book through the eyes of a child.
