the first book is definitely for middle school students. JK Rowling's writing advanced as her readers matured, a very smart move. I cannot read the first book anymore because it is too simple, but the last four books I can enjoy for a second read.
I think she also wrote adult versions of the book. Something to look into.
If you have never read Harry Potter, you need to read in order because EVERYTHING ties together at the end.
I think kids in my school were reading it when they were in third to fourth grade
The Harry Potter series is definitely aimed to each age group, however, the earliest books were aimed toward the young adolescents. As the series progresses it comes to be more for the young adults, as in the series, the readers were meant to relate with the characters in the series through events that occurred just as in everyday life.
My son read it in third grade. So I think that would be the lowest (age 8) and I enjoyed at twenty three. In my opinion it is ageless. And epic. I did enjoy The Chronicals of Narnia a bit more, however Harry Potter is a close second.
My only contact with Harry Potter is a Spanish translated version that my Mother reads...she reads it on airplane trips whenever I take her to the east coast to visit relatives there...Spanish version is probably middle school or so...relative to the original English series, I guess?
I'd say up to 11 or 12 years. I was roughly that age in the midst of the hype and quite quickly began to find them a little too young for me to read. I never really understood adults reading it as I found it to be clearly written for people younger than me when i was 12/13.
