Now, for all those who did--and do--enjoy the Harry Potter series, let me ask you a question. Besides Harry, who are your two favorite characters, and why? What techniques does author J.K. Rowling use to make these characters stand out in your mind.
There are many characters that I enjoy in the Harry Potter series. I like the no-nonsense Professor McGonagall, the werewolf-with-a-heart Lupin, and the ever-conniving Fred and George. I even have a soft spot for Peeves the Poltergeist.
But I would have to say that, aside from the obvious choice, Harry, my two favorites are Hermione Granger and Severus Snape.
