We've heard enough comparisons with Harry Potter vs Twilight to last us two lifetimesLOL, so what do you say about Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings? I've never read Lord of the Rings, but I did read Hobbit, and it was a great book, but I can't say anything yet as I haven't read the whole series, but which do you guys prefer?
 
P.S. (Judging from what I heard of Lord of the Rings, I like the character of Frodo the best, as he reminds me a little of Harry from HP.Smile)

Harry Potter... I tried reading the Hobbit... I agree that it's very well-written but the storyline didn't appeal to me at all... which is why I didn't finish reading The Hobbit or the other books...

Hmmm I like both. While Harry Potter is a delight for all ages...young or old and the series grows up along with its protagonist, LOTR is for slightly mature readers.

It is adult fantasy genre.

Well, my opinion might be biased since I haven't read Lord of the Rings.  Such stories never appeal to me as even though they're unreal they don't seem real to me as Harry Potter does.  So my vote goes to HP. 

I have seen the LOTR movies as my brother is crazy about them, and I didn't even like the movies.

I like the Harry Potter books more. The LOTR are great novels but can be a bit tedious to read, which makes the Harry Potter series more likable as its a very easy read in comparison. However I do think that the books are worth the effort it takes to read them.  

Storywise there are certain simalarities, however each series of books are unique in its own right.
 
On a side note, I like the LOTR movies much better than the Harry Potter movies. For the most part these movies stuck with the books.
