Harry Potter. Percy is to flawless. I used to like it before I read The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, but Percy was no match for them. I WOULD friend you, but I think the thing that lets you friend people is blocked. Let me check... But, when it gets fixed, I'll request you. ~Jared

I personally like Harry Potter better. I also like PJO, but Harry Potter has a stronger plot, and characters. Plus, Harry Potter was the series that I fell in love with. I read PJO before I read HP, but I fell in love with HP. ;)

There was a post about this on the buzz board, and things got kind of out of hand, but as these are the Harry Potter boards, I think most people would say Harry Potter, like me.

Hmmm... hard question! Actually I think they are both equally awesome, since Percy is the greatest hero right now and so is Harry, though Percy gets to more dangerous deeds in the Heroes of Olympus, which are the BEST books ever!!

@Chattydrawing--- We're entitled to our opinions. I personally think that Harry is better, since Percy has no flaws. Don't hate someone just because they don't agree with you on one thing. And I think Hunger Games is better than both. Should I hate people who disagree with me? ~Jared

lynxlaunching--- have you even read the books? 1. more monsters 2. more epic battles 3.more twists 4. more ACTION 5. more surprises Don't get me wrong, harry potter is great i read then all in 2nd grade, but greek, roman, and modren life all mixed together is way better. and if you have read the PJ books then you shoud read the heros of olympus siers.

@Chattydrawing-- Yup! I've read PJ, and honestly, I've read Heroes of Olympus, too, and I loved the first but the second was so boring that I almost threw my Nook out of the window. I'm just not interested in mythology, and Percy is so flawless it's ridiculous. ~Jared

They are really great books! I think they are equal. If I were at Hogwarts I would be a Ravenclaw and if i were a demigod as in the Percy Jackson series I would be in the Athena cabin.

WOOW!!! Hard competition! Um..let's see....Percy jackson series was amazing, but I first read the HP books....its in the genes of my family. I LOVE both, and read them over and over agina. The thing is that HP is finished, and PJ is still continuing...so I am intrested in PJ right now, but I absolutely love both! Who agrees?

Well I personally thing PJO rocks and is epic and very modern and The Heroes of Olympus is even better and i <3 it but Hp I view as a classic I am NOT saying that HP is way better and PJO has no competition I am just saying they are both awesome books but Hp is 1% better

Harry Potter is waywaywyaywaywaywaywaywayway better than PJO! Percy is way too flawless, and, frankly, seems like a cardboard character or a Gary Stu. I mean, seriously, Percy's "fatal" flaw is saving people *snorts*. That's ridicuolous (Yes, I know I spelled that incorrectly, sorry).

I can't decide. However, Rick Riordan's new series "Heroes of Olympus" is way better than Harry Potter.

This is a broad question because Movie!Harry is different than Book!Harry and Book!Percy is different from Movie!Percy and Book!Percy is different throughout PJO and Heroes of Olympus. Before you read though, it's probably going to be obvious that I very much dislike Percy in the movies and in Heroes of Olympus. Movie!Harry vs. Book!Percy (PJO): Tie, probably. Movie!Harry vs. Book!Percy (Heroes of Olympus): Movie!Harry, without a doubt. Book!Harry vs. Book!Percy (PJO): Harry, but I like them both. Book!Harry vs. Book!Percy (Heroes of Olympus): Harry, and I don't like Percy in Heroes of Olympus. Movie!Percy vs. Book!Harry: Book!Harry, because I despise Movie!Percy. Movie!Percy vs. Movie!Harry: Again, I despise Movie!Percy, so Movie!Harry wins.

In my opinion, Harry Potter is way better because Percy Jackson is as lynxlaunching said, too flawless. Harry and all his friends (and enemies) have flaws, however noticable. Also, I've grown up with Harry Potter, so I guess its typical of me to choose that. Please don't tell me I'm wrong, I know other people have different opinions, and that's totally cool, and I accept that.

I have to say Harry Potter. His world is more complex and Harry has flaws, while Percy is virtually flawless. I have read both series. Right now I'm wearing a Ravenclaw Quidditch jersy and a Gryffindor tie, not an athena jersy and a hermes tie!!! I'm such a potterhead smiley

In my opinion, Harry Potter is WAAAAAY better. Like, PJO is sooo behind.  Honestly, I Think HP is way better 'cause  Harry Potter brought Together people of all ages. Did PJO? NO! No offense to Percy Jackson fans, but percy is kind of too "heroic" sometimes. Standing on Posidon's throne was pretty dumb. Sure, Harry Potter has flaws, But at least Rowling admitted it

Harry Potter, no doubt. I read the first Percy Jackson Book and I have decided that Greek gods (or any mythology for that matter), just doesn't interest me.

I think that Harry Potter would be better because he is just like a normal boy, but had a hard life  and is a wizard. However Percy is a boy who had a hard life, but can heal himself with water and other things like that. 

Harry Potter is my vote.

If I had to choose between Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, I would have to choose Harry because Harry has been through a lot more than Percy and he is still nice.                               -Magicwizard213

P.S. I love Wizards!!! heart 

BTW I read both of thoes series and Iloved them both so it was a hard desicion.

No contest, Percy Jackson all the way!

I mean, Harry potter is pretty cool and all, but he never has a sense of humor, which is what I like about Percy. Harry is always the-world-is-ending-oh-no, and Percy is the-world-is-ending-I-must-make-a-stupid-joke

Plus the Harry Potter series A: No swordfights or close combat action ,and B: The only series I ever dropped because it was too frustrating. I don't get the same I-need-to-read-these-books thing that I get from the PJ series.

Both great chracters/books though! You pose a tough question!

I personally think harry potter is much better. i mean No on says anything is wrong with percy jackson. it isn't even half as long! also harry potter is just more awesome. because

 "WE did it, we banned him wee potty's the one, and voldy's gone moldy, so now let's have fun!"

-peeves

did percy  kill kronos? NO! which therefore means harry is more awesome. period. Also Did  kronos have the guts to kill prcy's parents? no? did kronos try to kill harry in a state of weakness? NO. WHY ARE WE EVEN  ARGUING ABOUT THIS? wink I rest my case.

this used to be a hard decison, but now I BY FAR say Harry Potter!!! I was completly obsessed and in love with HP. then i read PJO and I loved it even more, but as I got older, I don't like Percy Jackson as much anymore, but I'm STILL obsessed with HP! (and i first read it, like, 3 years ago, I'm STILL obsessed. So yeah. Please no one be mean about the two books though, cause I still do lke PJO. (i'm looking at YOU beeart2698)
