Model Answer:
Everybody has a favourite book, and it becomes our favourite book because we do enjoy reading that book to a great extent. Later on, we think about the characters and the plot of the book over and over again and feel like they are a part of our life or the life we imagine would exist. So, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to let me talk about my favourite book here.

The name of my favourite book is none other than the "Harry Potter" series. It is not a single book, rather, a series of seven novels. I have enjoyed all of these books and read some of the books of this series more than once!

These books are written by the world-famous British author J. K. Rowling. Born as Joanne Rowling in 1965 in England, she is an author, philanthropist, producer and screenwriter. But, I will always remember her as the creator of the magical world of Harry Potter.

The book series is primarily about the lives of a young boy, Harry Potter, first an ordinary boy and then a fine wizard, and his close friends, all of whom are pupils at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harry Potter, a young boy, who finds out that he has magical power, goes to school to develop his magical power and learn skills, and it was all arranged for him to become one of the greatest magicians ever. The story evolves as they grow up and Harry struggles against a dark wizard, Lord Voldemort, who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body and non-magical people. Our hero is our last hope to prevent that to happen. The world of Harry Potter explores numerous themes and includes many cultural meanings and references. And according to Rowling, the author of the book series, the main theme in the series is "death". Other important themes, according to her, include prejudice, corruption, and madness. Personally, I believe that it is about a magical world where our hero proves that a noble heart prevails over corruption and power.

This is my favourite book because it has taken me to an amazing world where I had been able to build my own world away from the complexities of the real world. It is my favourite also because it helped me connect to the characters to a level that has influenced me to think positively in life. Finally, it was an amazing adventure in the world of magic where I could travel like the hero Harry did!
