    Does the series Harry Potter represent a generation?

    My friends and I always laugh and joke that when the final Harry Potter book was published, and the last segment of the final movie was released, that our childhood was essentially over. Are there any Potterheads out there that agree?

    I do think that Harry Potter represents a generation. The evidence lies in the massive success of seemingly random books. Would The Hunger Games or Twilight be as popular as they are today if Harry Potter hadn't created an army of readers hungry for more? I think this trend will continue into the future, like the tide coming in every so often to sweep another book to astronomical success and then recede into their daily lives for a while.

      Very well put. I hope the next high tide brings in something just as noteworthy and life changing for the next generation, since Harry Potter played a major role in so many of this one... of mine. But hey, that is a Potterhead for you, huh? (:
