Infact, it's pretty damn good... from what was just a childrens book to what it is now takes some doing that's for sure.

I wish. That'd be a good excuse to sack him if that did hapen tho
def not trash!! If you dont like it, dont read it!
No, absolutely not. No question.
I know I'm in the minority, but I personally hate Harry Potter (in particular the style of writing)
That said, I don't think it's trash.
i've read them up to book 5. started book 6, got bored and gave up.
the fact that daniel 'quits' over an argument shows how they are still silly little children.
I think the books are fantastic, but, the last 2 books : oder of phoniex and half blood are so C R A P, espc the half blood, and i SO am NOT watching the new movie ;p!!!!!
I read the first one in 1997 before it was famous, and so have read the others, the last 2 in one weekend, some Ppl IMO go to far though = waiting outside bookshops 3 days early when they can go at 11 pm today or order online. They wait in the rain, don't they have jobs or school etc.
Harry Potter Books = Brilliant
Harry Potter Films = Trash
That's a matter for debate; still, at least you came to the one area of the forum that's guaranteed to give you an unbiased opinion.
It's certainly somewhat simplistic and unsophisticated, but that's because it is - despite a large number of adults enjoying it - a children's book, not because it's trash. I don't think there are many well-read people who would ever claim that the Harry Potter books are of great literary value, but they entertain a great many people (including myself, regardless of my awareness of their limitations).
For me, the Harry Potter books are ones which are very enjoyable reads, but which leave you - if you're reasonably intelligent and older than the original target audience - in no doubt that they are purely children's books; they aren't enjoyed on different levels by adults and children, they're just enjoyed on a child's level by both children and adults.
If I sound overly critical, that's my personal opinion of how the books seem to me; for children I think they're an absolutely excellent series.
