    I hate how over-rated the magic in it is . . they act like it's the most powerful thing in the world . . if I was writing those books, then I'd give Harry Potter a bullet in the head.

    I hate the last chapter of the last book. The end is to closed, and I was dissapointed when it was nineteen (!) years later. I can't explain why, but I didn't like it.
    Hopefully it's true that there will be a book 8.

    there isnt anything that i really hate about it but there are a few things that bug me.

    1) it is too far fetched
    2) harry is an idiot who doesnt deserve to be a hero
    and finally
    3) sucks wat happens to the twins in the last book

    I think she overfluffs some parts of it... and also recycled the idea a little. I mean, the first 2 books were ALMOST identical, the 3rd varied its end, and the 4th wasn't much different aside from the lack of Quidditch and use of other games. Order of the Phoenix was different, yes, but still not totally original. But then I suppose the same can be said of any book in a series similar to HP.
    I do think it's over-rated though and made waaaaaaaaaaay too much money. There are far better books.

    The epilogue of the seventh book.

    I hated that stupid thing. I would have been MUCH more satisfied with the ending had Rowling just left that bit out. I mean honestly? It read like TERRIBLE fan fiction. Albus Severus? For Gaia's sake, come off it. Sometimes I wonder if she didn't just scour some fanfic sites and pick one to stuff at the end of the seventh book as some sort of bad joke that only she can laugh at because all her readers think she's serious.

    It just wasn't a good way to end the series, in my opinion. And I've been a Harry Potter nut since she first published the first book. I started reading them before all the hype.

    What don't I like about potter? hmmm... probably the fact that it's too childish for my liking.

    I don't appreciate Hagrid's dialect because I liked to read these to my daughter. Thankfully, she's taken over reading them to herself. I always stuttered and struggled with Hagrid's parts.

    About the Harry Potter books, I hate most - Harry Potter. -He really, really needs to get over himself and stop being such a martyr.
    -How Severus was severly mistreated >.<

    Two things I hate about Harry Potter: Harry is a total emo kid, and I HATE emo kids. And that the writing sucks. It's written for kids, yes, but it doesn't have to be dumbed down that badly...

    What I love about Harry Potter is they're just fun books to read, and not your typical fantasy book. As the series has gone on, the books have gotten better.

    I don't hate Harry Potter for the simple reason that the series wasn't written with my age group in mind. They're children's books, and if they encourage the young to read, whether it be books in general or the fantasy genre in particular, then more power to 'em.:)
