Just how big is Harry Potter 6?
Harry Potter fans will be pleased to know that Hogwarts’s most famous student has slimmed down, or at least book 6 has. While book 4 was 734 pages, and book 5 was 870, book six will have only 672 pages.
At this rate, Harry 7 might be small enough to compare to one of Dosto‘s better-known books.
Years ago I met a nice 6-yr old, who came up to me and explained he had learned to read just so he could read Harry Potter, and proudly read aloud a page from HP 1. In a few years I’m sure that kid’ll be ready for anything by Dosto or his compatriots.
