The Banishing of Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling is the first Harry Potter book I've read in a long time. While I really enjoyed the book, it didn't quite live up to the reception the book's received since J.K. Rowling released the film version. I'm not exactly sure why, but the film failed to match the excitement of the book's release. For me, the question of whether or not I'd recommend The Banishing of Harry Potter to someone else who's just beginning to read Harry Potter is too subjective to answer. I probably would not recommend The Banishing of Harry Potter to a first time reader. However, if you're an experienced reader and are looking for a lighthearted comedy with excellent twists, then The Banishing of Harry Potter might be just what you're looking for.
Harry Potter lives in the magical Britain of Hogwarts Castle, where everyone knows everyone, and magic is real. Despite this fact, though, life for Harry is much different from the outside world. Most of the time, he hangs out with his friends at school, but on occasion, he has to defend himself from dangerous situations. Injuries that result from these adventures are often funny to watch because they are usually unexpected. One such injury is during a battle between Quidditch team members. Harry gets splashed with a nasty water jet while playing in the groundsman's quad.
When Harry returns home, his friends are waiting for him, but he's nowhere to be. Frustrated, Flamelurk the spider informs Harry that he has a problem: he's not human. For reasons known only to Harry, he decides to visit a witch called Narcissa Forethought in a hope that she can help him. She realizes that the reason Harry can't come back to earth is that all non-magical objects cannot be removed from their surrounding environments. This includes the body of the person that might be trying to kill him. The three of them then have to work together to solve a mystery that has captured the attention of several wizards.
The Banishing of Hagrid is one of the best selling books in the history of British literature. According to some experts, the reason for its success is that J.K. Rowling was able to successfully capture the charm, which many young readers yearn for in a story. The banishing also offers a lesson on the perils of accepting authority and on how to be a good friend to those that you know. In addition, the novel offers a glimpse of what life would be like if one were a giant. The novel ends with a bang, though it doesn't reveal where the series will head next. In fact, J.K. Rowling is teetering on the possibility of creating five more Harry Potter novels, but she has yet to announce any details.
The Banishing of Hagrid is available for purchase online. The print copy can be purchased from most leading bookstores and is available in most languages. The hardbound version is priced at more than two hundred dollars and can be ordered through the Internet only. The e-reader version can be obtained for under fifty dollars.
The popularity of The Banishing of Hagrid can be attributed to J.K. Rowling's amazing talent as a writer, but also to the sheer popularity of Harry Potter as a whole. Fans of the Harry Potter series are likely to be among the biggest fans of the book and the film as well. The combination of these factors accounts for why The Banishing of Hagrid is one of the best selling books of all time. Whether one wants to read about the adventures of Hagrid's adventurous days or just enjoy the story itself, the book is likely to be a winner.
