    About J.K. Rowling


    1. See also Robert GalbraithAlthough she writes under the pen name J.K Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling She calls herself Jo and has said, No one ever called me Joanne when I was young, unless they were angry Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling n e Volant , on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles 16 km northeast of Bristol Her mother Anne was half French and half Scottish Her parents first met on a train departing from King s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964 They married on 14 March 1965 Her mother s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran Her mother s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles le Comte during the First World War.Rowling s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four She attended St Michael s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More Her headmaster at St Michael s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister She recalls that I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it Certainly the first story I ever wrote down when I was five or six was about a rabbit called Rabbit He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind, gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford s autobiography, Hons and Rebels Mitford became Rowling s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, I wasn t particularly happy I think it s a dreadful time of life She had a difficult homelife her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father she is no longer on speaking terms with him She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department Rowling said of her adolescence, Hermione a bookish, know it all Harry Potter character is loosely based on me She s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I m not particularly proud of Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as not exceptional but one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books.

    1. This was not a series of books for me. This was (and although I rarely admit it, is) my life. I read the series every year - always aiming to finish it on July 31st: Harry's birthday. I used to (and still would if I could) pretend to be Harry, or Hermione in reception! I told all my friends to read them (just as my sister had when she was younger and the first books had only just come out) - always persisting that these books were nothing short of revolutionary (considering I was in primary scho [...]

    3. I don't care to admit how many times I've read this series, because it's a little indecent. Let's just say I'm a fan, okay? Having grown up reading C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Tolkien's The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy, I was primed for another installment of a young, unlikely hero marked by fate to battle the forces of evil, getting by with a little help from his friends. Unlike some Tolkien/Lewis buffs, I am not offended by Rowling's similarities to their works, because archet [...]

    4. My nephews and nieces gave me this set, and I've so much enjoyed reading them. This family got me hooked onto Harry. I'd be at their House, and they'd have Harry games, Harry this and Harry that. I could tell I better get caught up quick, so I read the first four books quite quickly, then I felt I was caught up with my family. As the movies started coming out, I'd read all the book up to and including the movie book each time, so I've read or listened to them all at least 3 or more times each, u [...]

    5. I'd much rather attempt "Arry P'otter, than, um - well, see, i can check the English version after every sentence/paragraphI tried a kid's book, but without pictures, i don't get far- looking up the words becomes tiresome, so this is perhaps a way to go. :P

    6. This series is an integral part of my childhood. It taught me to dream, imagine, create- and all other things that are essential to life. I remember my grade school and how I and my classmates would imagine that we are in Hogwarts. It was that good. It inspired young children and even adults to believe and imagine. All great things come to an end but the epic that is Harry Potter will continue to live on. Someday when I'll have a family of my own, I'll encourage my children to read Harry Potter. [...]

    7. I still remembered that day, years ago, when I stumbled upon the first book. I thought, why on earth that a book about young wizard sitting on the popular bookshelves. I took one home out of curiosity and from then on, I am enchanted. I also still remembered the scent of the last book of the series, so bittersweet, because after that turn of the last page, there will be no more stories about friendship, love, sacrifice and moreover, courage.

    8. Of all these books, the first was my favorite. The series gets very dark--extremely thought provoking which I absolutely loved. And yet, nothing is like the whimsy and falling in love-ness I associate with the introduction we get to Hogwarts, Harry, Hermione and Ron. Thoroughly delightful--all of my children have also enjoyed these well-written imaginative stories.

    9. I started out reading these to my daughter and I was hooked! Love them! Truly magical in every way.

    10. My favorite books ever!!! I'm crazy about HP, reading every detail to detail. Each summer or winter break, I cannot help myself, and I must read through the whole series once.

    12. The series of Harry Potter include 7 books: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone; Harry potter and the Chamber of Secrets; Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I loved reading all of these books, and my favorite book was the Order of the Phoenix. It is when Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley are preparing [...]

    13. This was a very good book. After the first time reading the first book, I doubted Rowling could do any better. How wrong I was. This book is just as good as the first, filled with humor, action, and friendship. I now know why it has been such a good series. This book is about Harry Potter, who is attending his second year at Hogwarts. He faces many challenges there and at his Uncle's house. He also receives a warning from a mysterious creature that he is in danger-and Lord Voldemort will return. [...]

    14. Okay. I did not actually read this version. I read the books seperately like a normal person, but I found this on the web and thought I should review it. Yeah, I have to say, I liked the first four books. Probably my favourite one in this four books is either the (1) book or the (4) book. The first one is because that I love the way the author can express so much in so little words, and the story is actually pretty interesting, and is a perfect start and intro to the series. The fourth book beca [...]

    15. Books 1 and 2 read more as very young adult fiction, but Rowling really opens into a deeper world with books 3 and 4. 4 is one of my favorites as it gets out of the bubble of Hogwarts and reveals more of the magical world in which Harry Potter resides. It surprises me how many of my high school students have not read any of the HP books, let alone the entire series. This is due in big part to the films, but still, the books have so much more in them and so much more to offer the reader. Harry Po [...]

    16. I am so glad that there was an option on here to review the first four books instead of the whole series, as I didn't enjoy the three books after Goblet of Fire as much as these. As someone who grew up a similar age to Harry, I felt like I was on an emotional journey alongside him during every book. I am still to this day amazed by the imagination of J.K Rowling and her ability to capture the hearts of both children and adults alike. The Goblet of Fire is my favorite of the four but I am almost [...]
