What is the story ?

Impossible not to know Harry Potter. Or you haven’t lived on Earth for the past 25 years.

Harry Potter is this young wizard born under the pen of the British author JK Rowling.

According to her, it all started in 1990, during a train journey she made between Manchester and London. It was during this journey that she had the idea for the character ofHarry Potter. The saga will tell the adventures of this young wizard and his friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft. The main story will be about Harry’s fight against Lord Voldemorta magician in search of immortality, who murdered Harry’s parents when he was still a baby.

Why does it work?

Corentin Faniel is co-author of the book “Harry Potter deciphered by his fans”and creator of the “Daily Prophet”.

According to him, Harry Potter lives enormously by his fans. It is the community that has long kept the little wizard and the myth alive. It is this community which analyses, which deciphers, which debates its understanding of the scene.

Harry Potter is also a resolutely contemporary : feminism, sexism, and other societal themes.

Each novel is written like a detective story, with an investigation. And the subjects evolve with the saga, the more we advance in the volumes, the more the subjects tackled are serious, but always with a little lightness.

According to Corentin Faniel, it is “the universality of these themes (mourning, death, friendship, etc.), which speak to everyone, and the timelessness of the story, which can explain the eternal aspect of the story of the young wizard, and his success global.”

It is with JK Rowling that the fans are the least tender.

At first, the author was very close to her readers. But certain events have distanced the successful author from fans of the young wizard, such as lawsuits made to fans, or recent controversies.
