Harry Potter Books : RevolutionSF Reviews

July 17, 2009

None of us were alive then, but twelve years ago there were no Harry Potter movies. Just books. For some we said a lot about the whole book. For others, we gathered a smattering of micro -- critiques in a handy format we call Sucks / Rocks. Now let us return to those strange times when we were forced to imagine what Harry looked like.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerors Stone

"The popularity of this book means that I won't get to teach it in my classroom for a long time. Cause they've all read it. And seen the movie. And played the video game. And dressed up as a character for Halloween."

Sorcerors Stone RevSF review:

"This world is rich in detail and diverse and just plain fun."

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

"Deus Ex Dobby. I feel sorry for the poor house elf, and like him in the later books. But exactly how many powers do house elves have?"

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

"The Dementors are just totally rockin' monsters."

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

"And hey, Hogwarts faculty: nice magical protection."

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

"I really wonder why Dumbledore has this great reputation. He's known Harry for four years now, and decides that not telling him anything is the best course of action?"

Order of the Phoenix RevSF review:

"It took me about twelve hours to read the whole book, and I tried, I really tried, to take my time."

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

"Harry outgrows the ritualistic flying phallus circle jerk that is Quidditch."

Half Blood Prince RevSF review:

"It’s all quite innocent in comparison with real-world teens but downright racy compared to Harry’s earlier tales."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"And lo, for what felt like 40 years, did Harry, Hermione and Ron wander in the wilderness."

RevolutionSF reviewed all the Potter books and all the movies. We sort of rule in that way.
