I think it depends on the time the books came out. The harry potter books were cool because they came out on a yearly basis, so harry and his pals grew up with you.

Twilight was written much faster, I think.

Wuthering Heights sucks.

Damn. Straight.

I hate Wuthering Heights. Catherine is fickle, whiny, and bitchy and Heathcliff is a horrible horrible guy. Their love is not powerful, it sucks.

Also, Harry Potter is much better than Twilight. First off, even though the characters are fantastical, they make sense and you can connect to them in some way. On a basic level, they are believable, likable characters, whereas Twilight is lacking. (Like the teens had problems real teens would have, like puberty and crushes, etc. while Twilight kind of skipped over that.) Also they are a fun read and actually well thought out. Rowling created a whole new world and yes, wizards are used just as much as vampires, but whereas vampires are pretty much set in what you can do with them, wizards are on a whole different level because, well, they can do anything! (Even be sparkly in sunlight or turn into puppies if they really really wanted to!) Also, other than Harry being an angry little bugger and Ron being a bit of a jerk, none of the "good" characters are abusive to their friends or loved ones, which is possibly the most aggravating thing about Twilight. (Other than Bella being a complete nutter.)

Neither series is elegant when it comes to prose, but Rowling has a much better flow in the way she writes and also created a much more well thought out universe, which is why I feel her books will far outlast anything Meyer has (or will) put out.

When (spoiler) Hedwig died (endspoiler) in the beginning of Book 7, I put the book in the freezer and had to sit alone for a while.

I think that means Rowling did her job well?

Rowling managed to kill all of my favorite characters minus one. I was annoyed, but got over it, because she did a good job in showing how random death is in war. Except Fred. I am still kind of pissed she killed one of the twins, because they are my absolute favorites.

I don't even remember Pig getting mentioned past Book 5.

The better one, no less. :(

I think it can be read both ways, to be honest. So both of you are right!


Both the main characters are terrible people. Good to know.

LEAVE MY HARRY ALONE

To be fair I don't think anybody was really indicting the quality of the HP series, more just decrying the idea that the Harry Potter series was good for kids literacy in general, which is true.

My mum, who is a teacher, said something pretty neat on this subject the other night. It was a long the lines of

"What's good for Literacy is reading a varied selection of books for different authors, genres & time periods."

Which I thought was a fair point.
