My friend Rachel had been bugging me for a while to read the books, but I thought they were meant for children and I'm always wary of stuff that is extremely popular. I finally read the first one shortly after Goblet of Fire came out.
Were you hooked instantly, or did it take a while?
Instantly. I felt like I really understood where Harry was coming from, the whole outcast thing. And I love Hermione, she reminds me of myself.
Did you instantly fall in love w/ any specific character?
Snape. Intelligent + clever + sarcastic = love.
