Speaking about creative ability for these series:
-Harry Potter is a GREAT work, nonetheless, it is set to a world much similar to ours, and modern day society does exist.
-Star Wars is about the future. Cliche.
-Lord of the Rings (or Tolkien) created a separate world. Of course, same geographical characteristics, but come on, he created whole new races, new places, new EVERYTHING. Only a small part is used to describe humans, whilst Tolkien really takes the prize for the creative genius.
Speaking about reader-book relationship:
-Harry Potter just makes you want to keep reading. It's been seven fucking books, and as soon as I finished one, I expected the next one with huge enthuisasm. I even dropped a tear when Deathly Hallows ended. 'And his scar hadn't hurt for 19 years'. For fuck's sake.
-Star Wars... why even considered?
-The Lord of the Rings is great, just magnificent, but I believe it is too short. It doesn't use all of the suspense there was room for, and if Tolkien might've written 2 more books, before RoTK, it would've beaten Harry Potter. Nonetheless, he didn't.
